Sarah Kay and Spoonful challenges

The Sarah Kay challenge this week is take your inspiration from "sweets, candies and treats" so I've gone with chocolate - no surprises there then!!

I've coloured the Sarah Kay stamp with distress inks and H2O's. The papers are Making Memories Cosmopolitan pad which I have had for absolute ages. I've used my Martha Stewart zig-zag border punch (thanks Sally) and my Stampin Up photo corner punch. The pearls are from Sally, the sentiment is computer generated.

-o-O-o-

I had to do a card for this weeks sketch on A Spoonful of Sugar - it's fabulous and the result is a card that was done in 10 minutes - I love it when a card comes together so quickly.

My order from The Hobby House arrived yesterday with the delish Cosmo Cricket Little Dutch Girl papers which didn't even get time to be stroked, let alone put away lol. Also in the parcel was this cute Sugar Nellie stamp which I have coloured with distress inks & H2O's. The sentiment is Studio G, punched with my Stampin Up Word Window punch. The snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart and Dovecraft punch. The brads are Papermania. The ribbon (I know it's not in the sketch but I love my ribbons!!) was recused from a present earlier this year.

Thanks for looking,
