Easter/Spring Challenge at The Sugar Bowl

Hi Ladies

Hope you're all well...  the sun is shining here today.... but it's not kidding me... it's COLD out there - so I'm going to wrap up warm when I go for coffee with my friend this morning!  Barry and I went up to Northallerton to do a bit of pottering yesterday and I thought it looked nice weather... but I ended up cold and wet as it started sleeting while we were out!

The Sugar Bowl

I'm here today with my card for the new challenge over at The Sugar Bowl...  the theme is Spring/Easter and I thought this little lady fitted the bill (bill/beak??  get it??)  

I tried and tried to think of a sentiment..  but couldn't come up with one so it's without at the moment... though my lovely OH did suggest I should add 'I said EASTER not GEESTER'.... Hmmmm I don't think so!!

The image is Goosey Gander and is available in rubber from Funky Kits HERE.  I've coloured her with copics... diecut her with my Li'l Inkers Stitched Rectangles,  used paper from Pink Petticoat... then some ribbon, gems and diecut flowers (Marianne Creatables LR0145)

I've used a different card style for this CAS card...  I thought it suited!  I saw this on, hmmm, I think it was Create and Craft...  and it's so easy to do and still folds up into an envelope.  Don't know what it's called, but if you want to know more, I can always give you the measurements.  It really stands quite strong.

I hope you'll pop over to The Sugar Bowl to see what my lovely teamies have come up with for the Easter/Spring theme..  I can tell you now, they're creations are gorgeous!  Then why don't you enter.. but don't forget to use a Sugar Nellie image... you have plenty of time to do it and there's such a lovely prize of FOUR rubber stamps of your choice!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting


  1. Such a pretty card, I love the paper and your border of lovely flowers. The card style looks fab too.

  2. So pretty. She's so sweet and I love the blue daisies and how you've matched the papers and embellies too.

    I have a quick query for you - I was so lucky to win the Sugar Bowl challenge 2 months running and emailed the owner to say I felt guilty and wondered if she'd like to redraw, but I never got an answer. Do you know if she's having trouble with her emails? I guess it doesn't matter as I wasn't happy to accept a prize 2 months running, but I guess I just expected some reply! hey ho!
