The Sugar Bowl Challenge 16 .....

This week there is a great sketch by Marlene at the Sugar Bowl, with the "please include" option of doodling on your card. There is the most fantastic prize on offer this week - a pick and mix of 6 Sugar Nellie stamps!! Wow!!

I have stamped Sugar Nellie Hug in a Mug, (she was one of my first Sugar Nellie stamps) I have coloured here with watercolour pencils and added some sparkle to her mug with my sakura stardust pen. The papers are BG Urban Prairie, fiskars border punch, nestabilities, ribbon, rub on.

That was the easy part, now the doodling!! I tried on a few scraps before I was happy with the doodling, I used brown and pink fine liner pens to draw faux stitiching around the card and the strip, then I did a line around the nestie, and a pink dot with brown dashes in the scallops. So not too much doodling, think I should have used a less patterned paper.

Having problems tonight with the internet again!! I have to keep changing computers just to stay connected!! It's such a pain and so time consuming!! I have finished my other card I just need to e-mail it tonight, fingers crossed!!

I have been to the Passion for Pomarkers challenge to get the new sketch tonight and found that my card had been chosen for the top 5!! I am so excited!!

Need to go and pack ready for tomorrow so that we can get away early??? Will be back at the weekend to see what you have been up to!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Angela xx
