What A Girl Wants...

One of the disadvantages of being unemployed (can't think of many advantages actually, apart from having plenty of time to make cards and sit in the sun ;o)) is that there is no money for all the yummy new stamps coming out at the moment! Sugar Nellie have outdone themselves again with some scrumptious new stamps (available from Funky Kits) but it'll be a while before they can come live with me.

Ah well, luckily I've built up something of a collection ;o), and I've used one of my favourite Elisabeth Bell stamps for this Sugar Bowl challenge card. The Sugar Bowl is a sketch challenge blog from now on (yay!!!) and the first sketch is by Marlene (thanks for the great sketch hun!). The option is buttons, which you have to use in order to be in the running for the fabulous prize!




My second card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge, another fab sketch as usual :D!


Ingredients used:
Sugar Nellie stamp, Aud Design sentiment, K&Company papers, Prima flowers, pearls, brads, charms, QuicKutz leaf die

Hänglar&Stänglar stamp, Stamping Bella Dutch sentiment (available exclusively from Card Art), K&Company papers, Prima flowers, pearls, brads, charms, QuicKutz leaf die



Well, that's all from me for now, hope to be able to show you some more cards next week :D. Have a lovely week and thanks for stopping by!


Hugs,

Het heeft altijd zijn voor en nadelen om geen werk te hebben. Helaas gaat het een niet zonder het andere. Ik hoop dat je binnenkort iets vindt. Zal in elk geval voor je duimen.
Zelf ga ik nog een week werken en dan op vakantie. Weet nog steeds niet of ik daarna nog terug mag komen. Maar dat zal de pret niet drukken.
Groetjes Sinikka
