The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 1

Hi everybody, Happy 2009 to you all!. The Sugar Bowl have launched their very first challenge and wow what a challenge it is, there is a sketch from Tiets to follow and it is a fabulous sketch!. I didnt think I would have a chance to make a card today, but when I saw this sketch I had to go and play lol. So through tired eyes I made this card my first of 2009:-I am pleased with how it turnt out, I love blue and orange together, well this is more aqua, I used sugar nellies lola with flowers and coloured her with promarkers. I used the cuttlebug tiny bubbles folder on a couple of the layers and cut the corners with a fiskars punch, and I used some paper from the papermania colassal for him pad. The flowers are prima, and I added some ribbons. The Sugar Bowl is offering an amazing prize of 3 packs of promarkers, wow thats like 30 pens lol! and wow what a prize!

Keeping up with my new years resolution on making the inside of my cards pretty too, which I have been learning from the masters Rach and Bev heres my inside:-

Thanks for Looking.x

Well New Years Eve was the best one of have had in years!, it was a right family occasion and guess what I didnt cry lol!. I did drink far more than I have done in gosh I cant remember the last time and we all had fun, I thought I'd share a couple of pics with you:-

This is me with my gorgeous brothers! my hubby there in the background lol. I was a little sozzled by the time this was taken!

Hi Joey, love your card. I have that stamp too and think she is just lovely. The inside of your card is fab, you are putting me to shame I dont do mine. Love the pics of you and your family, looks like the same sort of club we went to last night. You cant beat a good booze up at a good old WMC. I have to say looking at the pic of the little one, thats exactally how Abbie saw the new year in aswell. Hope the birthday goes well tomorrow.
