Sugar Bowl Challenge 66

Wow, what a hectic 10 days it's been......first, there was Gran's 70th birthday party, a day in Edinburgh (which included a picnic in St. Andrew's Square), then there was Louise starting back at school, Gran's ACTUAL birthday, then it was my birthday (which was fab, this year!), then it was my nephew, Sandy's 11th birthday, a weekend catching up on lots of DIY jobs, and my lovely hubby was on holiday yesterday, so we got a few more jobs done and enjoyed walking Lou to school/taking Euan to Jazz/Lou to ballet/etc.  Phew!!

So, at some point over the weekend, I finally finished colouring this little Sugar Nellie Cutie, Purrfect Playmates.  I've coloured her with Distress Inks, after FIRST choosing which papers I wanted to use....now, I'm guessing this is pretty normal for the majority of people, but I normally just colour my images (in lots of 5/10/15 minute blocks) then choose papers, which (hopefully) co-ordinate AFTER.  Not sure it's made a huge difference, but at least I knew for sure that it would look nice with the papers. These papers are First Edition Up, Up & Away, by the way, and are absolutely stunning!

So, I would like to enter the following challenges:

*Sugar Bowl - Sketch & One for the Girls
*Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
*Totally Gorjuss - As You Like It
*Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

I've got loads of other cards and jewellery to show you, including a Handbag "card"....I just need enough computer time to blog them!
