Sugar Bowl *27*

Good Morning!! It is time for another sketch at the Sugar Bowl and this week it is my turn! I hope you all like it!! The prize for this week is a pick and mix of 6 stamps of your choice!!! (That is always a good one :)
Anyways I had to make a thank you card for a little girl in Kelsey's class ~ she had a "Princess" party and I thought this adorable Gorjuss girl fit the bill:Kelsey said her favorite color was red so this paper was perfect and it is all sparkly to top it off!! My option is distressing so I went over all the edges with my scissors.

Paper ~ My Mind's Eye
inks ~ Distress inks, twinkling H20's
Accessories ~ Pearls, ribbon ~ Mike's, twine ~ PTI, charm ~ stash

I hope you can find time to play along! Don't forget you have to use a Sugar Nellie image though! Make sure to stop and see the rest of the DT's version of the sketch for some fabulous inspiration!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
We are having a pretty good thaw here! It is going to be in the 40's for a few days ~ it will feel like a heat wave!! haha
