GD for A Spoonful of Sugar

The lovely Michelle asked me to GD for A Spoonful of Sugar this week.  The challenge is being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.  The challenge this week is a recipe – 1 paper, 1 ribbon, 1 button, 1 embossing.

whimsy-carousel-love-

I have used Untamed Love and coloured with Copics.  The paper is Karen Neuberger that Kath sent me – thanks sweetie, I just love this paper xxx.  I have used the Swiss Dots folder for the embossing.

The bow was tied with the Bow Easy template that I got from Quixotic Paperie.  I am sold on it now for sure - a double bow in under 30 seconds, love it!!   The button was originally a yukky creamy yellow (through age) so I recoloured it with Copics.  Had a bit of a job fixing it to the bow, but after lots of muttering, a blob of glue and a heavy weight I eventually got it to stay put.

Thanks for stopping by,

  37. I have just recently been told about your blog and can't believe what i have been missing. Your cards are fabulous and are giving so much insperation

    thank you

  38. That image is so pretty.
    I think I will have to get myself one of those bow easy thingies, it takes me long enough to tie a normal bow never mind a double one!!
    Love the button, you would never know it was a yellow colour before.
    I tried colouring pearl brads the other day with my copics but it just went all streaky and horrible, although I have coloured loads of other bits with them without any problems including other pearls...weird lol.
