Anyway, here's my contribution to the challenge and I used my 'Daisy' stamp which was one of the very first stamps I bought from Sugar Nellie and I love her dearly she's so adorable and a dream to colour. The papers I used are from my one and only Basic Grey 'sugared' pad and boy oh boy did I break into a sweat cutting into these little beauties but I figured I couldn't keep and stroke them forever!!
Right, just a short post today, I'm so tired I'm nearly dropping off at the computer and I can hear my pillow calling.
Sorry I haven't left any comments this past week but I will try and get around to see everyone's gorgeous work tomorrow. Take care, hope you are all okay.

Well he thoroughly enjoyed his day. My other little one though is a different kettle of fish, she is in denial at the moment that she will be going back to preschool on Wednesday, so I am not looking forward to it. I can't bear the thought of having to leave her there if she doesnt want to go, but I mustn't make a scene, I will be a big girl and just get on with it. Help!
Sorry I haven't done a card today, but I will leave you with one last piccie before I go. Hope you don't mind.
They were playing cowboys here. Emilie is such a little tomboy but thats having a big brother for you!
Well I'll catch up soon. Hope you all have a good Tuesday and manage to get some crafty time in. I'll will be trying my hardest to get some time in.

Decided to decorate the inside quite simply have just added some tiny punched snowflakes to the background paper, but they don't show up that well.
The stamp used is a Sugar Nellie "Snowflake" from Funky Kits and coloured with my copics. Had to have a bit of glitter on her but I don't think my piccie shows it. I do apologise I'm no photographer. Sorry not sure what the papers are, but I know next time I will choose my papers first before I colour and not the other way round as I so had trouble matching up colours, but its a lesson learned.
Anyway, got to dash as I need to do some last minute checks just to make sure I've got everything ready for school, but knowing me I've probably forgotten something!
Thank you for dropping by it is very much appreciated and any comments are most welcome I love to know you popped in. Have a great day, see you soon.

Well when I saw the sketch over at the Sugar Bowl (just to prove its not a fluke I've done it again!) I just had to have a go so this is going to be my entry. Had so much fun with this and its a sketch I will definately be using again. I love sketches as sometimes my mojo does a runner and they really help me out so I'm always saving them for future use.
So without further ado heres my little piece of paper art and I hope you like it. I love the look that distressing brings but when I try it it just seems to end up a dirty mess so the nearest I get to it is inking around the edges which is what I have done a little of here but not sure if you can see it.
Right, off now to put together my first Crimbo card so hopefully if all goes well I'll be back tomorrow. Take care folks and hope you all have a great Sunday. Its my little ones last day before they go back to school so we are going to do something special. Thank you for taking the time to have a peek and any comments are appreciated I love hear what you think.
