A Spoonful of Sugar - Summertime

I found another challenge blog called A Spoonful of Sugar. They have a challenge on tuesday and today was to do Summertime. And if you guessed it already you have to use Sugar Nellie stamps. Where can you go wrong there?? This is right up my alley!! I didn't get time to play this morning as I wanted to get everything done because I knew today had to be the day I was getting my new Sugar Nellie stamps in the mail and I was so right!! These are the cutest!! I am glad I didn't hestitate to get them. Anyway I also just had to try out watercoloring. With ALOT of tips and help from Marlene (thank you so much) I have one that is somewhat presentable!! I must admit though I only used distress inks for her hair and basket as I don't have that many colors at the moment!! But I liked how it turned out!! I definitely will be investing in more colors now!!
Papers are Prima as are the flowers, ribbon from Micheals, paper ribbon and pearls are K & Co. The sentiment is from Cornish Hertiage Farms. I put a touch of stickles in the centers of all the flowers, too!! Thanks for the great challenge ladies and I look forward to next week!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!
