A sweet something for the Sugar Bowl

Well hello there! yes I am still here .. .. and at long last the neck is no longer killing me and I'm able to get back to a little light crafting.  I made this card a while back for the Sugar Bowl challenge #127, thankfully it still has a few hours to run so I am in time to enter!

I've used one of my old Country Cousins stamps called Angel Wishes and coloured her with my Copics to match some scraps of pale blue paper I had in my bit box.  She is still available but I see is out of stock at the moment - not sure about the digi version though.

Anyway, here is the card:

I've kept things simple as this one might end up being in the Charity box for my local St Francis dog rescue, although I did go overboard with the pearls!  As I said, the papers are oddments from my bit box and the edging across the bottom I already had cut out - I think a Nellie's Choice die if I remember rightly.  I added a few snowflakes cut from white scraps with one of the dies in Marianne Design set LR0327 and the pretty trellis from the die in set DF3416 that I just love! And the text is stamped onto a banner cut from a die in set COL1324.

The Christmas Card blog challenge #38 is anything goes, so I can also enter my card with them.

I am taking it easy so as not to trigger my neck into spasm again, but hope to be able to share a few more cards I've put together very soon.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Glad to hear you are on the mend Annie. Neck's can be so debilitating and there is little you can do to fix them quickly. This is a gorgeous card, such a pretty stamp, gorgeous papers and I love the trellis die cut in the same paper, such an effective look xx

  2. Gorgeous and adorable sweet card.

  3. Beautoful sweet card, love the soft colours. Thanks for playing in the sugar bowl. I have some candy on offer so hop over x
