A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 48 – A sketch by Caryn (ooh, that’s me!!!)

Hee hee – I am proud to say that this week’s challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar is a sketch by me!! This is my very first attempt at a sketch so please be easy on me, I hope you all like it. The DT have done wonders with it so please hop over and have a look. We have a gorgeous stamp as a prize this week generously donated by Katie and Collette at Nutcrafters – I wish I could enter myself!!!

I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this week – so get crafting!

This is my take on it. I have used a digi download (Dorothy Anya) from The Greeting Farm and coloured her with PM’s. The papers are from the most fabulous gift I received from my chum Steph at Much Ado About Nothing. I asked her if I could buy some of the Sweet Always SU! papers from her (she’s an SU! demo) but instead she sent me a selection of virtually every paper in the SU! catalogue!!!! She is such a HUGE sweetheart and so kind – I LOVE YOU STEPH!!! The papers on this card are from the Sweet Always range – my favourite. The bobbly string (?) along the bottom is from my Raspberry Ribbons kit from last month. I have been dying to use it since I got it but never really had the right spot for it. The flowers have been dyed to match the papers with my PM’s – I love how you can change them to suit your card!!

Right well, speaking of Stampin Up! I am hosting my first SU! evening tonight. I’m so excited – it’s like one of the best shops in the crafting world coming right to your house!! I have a bit of tidying and sorting to do before then – BUT it’s such a nice day here again that I may have to potter in the garden a bit first!!!

Have a lovely day wherever you are.
