Sugar Bowl # 72 and Simon Says Stamp

Quick post as doing homework with Hollie and then out to Girls Brigade.  Looks like McDonalds for tea.

I am entering my card into two challenges :-

Sugar Bowl # 72 - Follow Sketch, optional ice and snow
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes


Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Bazzill and Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny (love these colours)
Image - Sugar Nellie
Coloured with Distress Inks
Woodware Snowflake Punch
Woodware Flower Punch
Sentiment - Lily of the Valley
Gems - Mei Flower

Didn't get the inside finished so will upload it later.  Didn't want to miss the deadline for The Sugar Bowl.

Have ran out of the paper that I stamp my images onto and I am using a new pad that I got in Eason's, not to bad but seems to curl/bend if you use a lot of stickles.  The previous pad I used was from The Paper Mill and it was really good and cheaper. Any suggestions on paper for using with Distress Inks.

Got a lovely surprise on Monday when I went to comment on Debby's card and noticed I had won her candy.  It arrived this morning and is really gorgeous and look forward to using the stamps, ribbon and pearls.  Thanks again Debby.

Thanks for popping by and I will be round to visit your blogs later tonight after Girls Brigade.

wwwooohhhooo congratulations on your win Donna...I love your fantastic card, beautifully coloured and designed...which pad you using from Easons?, I use their Daler Rowney Langton hot pressed watercolour pads, its heavy weight and is perfect for DI's (make sure its the Hot pressed one, the cold pressed is too pitted for DI's) and it prints digis fantastically too
