The SugarBowl

Hi everyone, oooh two days on the trot lol, hope you are all well today, I have just made myself a hot choccy and turnt the heating on, talk about come over all chilly! I am still forcing the hot choccy down as I need to have a warm drink everyday lol. Belly Bean has certainly found "his" feet, I am convinced it is a boy! so no doubt they will say its a girl lol. The scan is next weds :O) I am so excited. My bloods are low so I am popping pills to hopefully feel better too, Iron usually makes me yak, but I have to work up to 6 pills a day eeek they look like skittles! huge things ugh! I have forced down 2 today so hopefully I can get another one or two in later, but its all good hopefully me and baby will be fighting fit by next week :O) Thankyou for your kind comments yesterday, you know how it is when you arent in the mood and nothing sits right, I will get round to visiting you all over the weekend!

I have made a card for The Sugarbowl Challenge where there is a fab sketch from Gayle to follow and the extra of paper piecing :O) love this technique!

I have used this gorjuss girl and basic grey papers, her hair and skin I coloured with promarkers. I used the same papers on the backing of the card, and some flowers,gems and ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and

Oh, i love that stamp! The background pattern is beautiful on that colour.(in black-and-white it's so ugly) The sentiment is really cute, i think it's because of the frills. :)

just so beautiful Joey.

Boo to the iron tablets - I'm still on 4 a day since Blake was born - 3 months now! Nasty things, one more week and I'm shot of them.

Will be thinking about you on Thursday, are you going to find out or have a surprise?
