Challenge *37*....A Spoonful of Sugar

Today there is a wonderful sketch by Tina over at A Spoonful of Sugar. I decided to make a Valentines Day card but not with the usual pinks and reds. I don't know if it works but I wanted a less frilly and girly card for one of Kelsey's teachers.
I am really loving all this MME paper that I picked up a couple weeks ago. When it first came out last summer I couldn't find it but now it is everywhere and on sale! So bonus for me I guess. The sketch was perfect for me to use this image too! I have seen everyone using it at Christmas but I had a hard time finding it in the states. Upon chance I found it at a store a couple days after Christmas and yes I got it on sale as well! I guess patience pays off! (Something I don't have much of!) Anyway I think he can be used for alot of occasions ~ he is just so cute!

Paper: MME
Inks: distressed inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: Button ~ Basic Grey, Flowers ~ Prima, twine ~ stash


Well thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it! I hope you ladies in the UK are having fun in your snow!! I wish we would get some real snow. It is always accompanied by rain so we have an abundance of ice!
Anyways have a great night!! I know I will. My show (The Mentalist) is on!!

Hi Kathy the papers certainly are lovely and the image is so cute. I'm hoping my hubby has some nice goodies as he's on his way back from the states, as I type I won't be getting any paper though cos he never knows which ones to get (bless) I wish I'd seen your card before he went lol. Shellx
