What to choose in the Sugar Bowl....


Hi All,

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend. I am so excited about the new realise of Leanne Ellis design stamps, over at the house of sugar!!!....I know you shouldn't have favorites but definitely love these designs...so even before I saw any of these designs I would want them...Then last night I saw Dena's post.....now I just NEED that stamp!!!!....I have been a bit naughty and I have been buying yet more craft!!!! so will have to try and sit on my hands for a while.

So I thought I better get my skates on and enter the sugar bowl challenge as the prize is 6 new Leanne Ellis designs..I know there is not much chance of winning, but its fun to play along anyway....and I can wish really really hard!!!!!

The hardest part of this challenge was choosing which sketch to use in the end I chose challenge 18.... Shockingly I have had this little sweetie for a while but have not yet inked her up...I was a little concerned it was the wrong time of year..but hey we had snow this week, so why not!!! I have used a combination of papers from "Basic Grey- Blush collection" and " Bo Bunny - Alica collection" The flowers are "Dawn Bibby" from a kit that I bought forever and ever ago and have used it so much then I inherited some more from my sister who doesn't really have time for crafting now...so I still have loads...I really would love to get to the bottom of some of my boxes!!

Anyway once again I do appreciate the time you take to pop over and have a look at my creations, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs Juls

  19. Hi Juls

    What a brilliant make.

    I love your delicate colour choice and gorgeous backing papers. They all blend together perfectly.

    A quick tip on getting to the bottom of some of those boxes .. .. .. get your hands on a bigger box and empty two boxes into one!! You have then reached the bottom of two boxes and deserve some more stash for being so good. LOL!!!

    Enjoy the Easter break.

    Love Jules xx

  42. Really sweet image Juls and you've made such a lovely card with her. Love these soft colours. I agree that it's difficult to choose a sketch for the Sugar Bowl challenge.

    I would also like to see the bottom of some of my stash. I do think that there is some stuff I will never use so I think I will need to take it to a charity shop nearby that often has craft stuff for sale.

    As for images I can't decide where to start with the gorgeous images you very kindly sent me.

  43. Ahhhh, this is just beautiful and one I do have but like you, until now that is, mine hasn't been inked up. I rush to buy them then don't get the time to use them! Also noticed that new LE stamps are due out and will defo have my mitts on them even though I have several still uninked! Love the colours on your card by the way and the distressing ... FAB! keeleyxx
