A spoon full of sugar - Guest DT


Morning everyone,

I was very kindly asked this week to be the guest designer on A Spoon Full Of Sugar and of course I jumped at the chance. I always love to take part in their challenges and the DT cards are always so full of inspiration, so I was extremely honoured to be a part of that..........thankyou so much ladies!

The theme this week is 'Blooming Marvellous' and I went for another Christmas card, using more of those delicious Imaginisce papers, I thought since Christmas is only a few weeks away I better start using them up......I've added some blooms, some little flower gems and I think you can see I also used some flowery dp!!!!

Here are the details
  • Images: Tilda and bauble (magnolia) sent to me by my lovely friend Carole
  • Paper: Imaginisce and Coredinations CS
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Flowers, brads, ribbon and gems from stash
I popped Tilda up on some 3d pads, curled a bit of wire for the bauble hanger and I also added stickles around the edge of the bauble for an extra bit of sparkle, you can see this better on the asfos blog!

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave, have a super day, wherever you are
