Sweet As Sugar xxxx

I love using black and white and red together. It's one of my fave colour combis I think.

When I got my Anya stamps out for PTW, I stamped a couple out and this was one of them, so I thought I'd use it for this weeks Spoonful Of Sugar challenge which is a gorgeous sketch by my friend Caryn.

Here's me creation.

I coloured this fabulous little Miss with my PMs and then practically threw the whole bottle of Glamour Dust over her, and of course you can get your mitts on some fab Anyas over at Dies To Die For.


The papers are both from the wonderfully talented Summer Driggs - her Year To Shine collection. I found a scrap of white organza ribbon lying about and there was just enought to make the bow. I don't know where it came from though, - sorry chicksies xxx

And there's a profusion of MSBP here - 3 layers per side!!! It has to be a record!!

The snowflakes were another left over from a recent card (I must tidy up a bit more lol xxx) and the litle red stones were from Creative Pastimes.

And here's the last pic.


So that's it for tonight.
Oh last night's chicken and chips was lovely. I alway put pickled onion vinegar on me chips like the good Northern lass that I am. Pickled onion vinegar and Maldon sea salt is what I have. Call me a pleb (and plenty have lol xxx) but there is nothing finer. If you've never tried it peeps then you've never lived.

And in the murk that has been today, there was a chink of sunlight. Yes, Kyla rang to say hello - and just when I needed it most. I can't tell you how glad I was to hear that little voice. They are having a lovely time and I'm so glad - although I will be gladder when they're back (naughty grandma!!). She is ringing again tomorrow because grandad was not home and she wants to talk to him - awww xxxx


And after a good old chinwag with the sweetness that is Marcea, I feel a whole lot better :)

So I'm off to read my jewellery mag that arrived today. It's a bit addictive this jewellery making I have to say. It won't ever replace the old cards but it's a nice change sometimes.


Have the fabbiest of nights peeps and if anyone saw Corrie, perhaps they could fill me in cos I missed it tongiht and Joe is worrying me with his pain killer addiction lol xxx

Your card is gorgeous - I love that triple MS layer. I keep looking at the jewelerly making in my mags - so far I've resisted - I don't think hubby would agree to re-mortgaging the house if I got into another hobby!!
Have a great day.
