A Spoonful Of Sugar #33....

is a beautiful sketch by Nikki!! Wow I can't believe I got to participate in a challenge!! Thanks for the simpler sketch to help ease my way and have time to get this accomplished! Also the fact that I stuck to 2 colors also made it easier! I just had to color this image in and the sketch was perfect for it! I used three stars from my cuttlebug for the right corner. It is kinda hard to tell what they are (LOL)! It looked different in my head! Her skirt and shoes are colored with twinkling H2o's. Can't really tell but looks cool IRL! Also the sentiment does not look like that but the shiny letters wouldn't take a good pic. (It is computer generated.)

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: distressed inks and twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Charm ~ Tim Holtz, twine ~ stash, flowers ~ Prima


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone's weather is better than ours!! It is starting to rain and snow and the forecast is for a nasty ice storm!! Yeah ~ just love those! (LOL)

Oh wow hunny this is a real little beauty, so pastel and sweet, love your colouring. Now dear I have a question to ask, was it you who sent me the fabulous folder with the Penny Black images. It wasn't signed so I am completely in the dark as to who sent it, but I had a feeling it might be you.
