Sugar Bowl *30*........

Good Morning!
Can you believe it is Thursday already!
Anyways it is my turn to provide the sketch
over at the Sugar Bowl this time and I hope
you all like it and find inspiration in it!
For the option I went with Shabby Chic.

I just had to use this image!! I have been so cold all the
time lately, I needed a reminder Spring is on the way!
Papers are a mix of DCWV and K and Co.
I colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's and
went around some of the edges with some distress crackle paint!
Both sentiments are from Catslife Press.

Make sure to stop by and see the rest of the DT cards! I just love
sketch challenges as you never see two alike cards!!
Hopefully you find time to play along as there is always a fab prize!
Just make sure to use a Sugar Nellie image.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by ~ I really appreciate all your lovely comments!
 We are supposed to be having a snowstorm with
 hurricane force winds here tonight into tomorrow! So if I am not
on here for a few days my power probably got knocked out! LOL
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
