A Spoon Full of Sugar is back!!! :)

Hi !!!

Wow..I'm so excited. "A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge Blog" is back!!! After a few weeks brake we are back with new energy and ideas. Today's challenge consist of following this wonderful sketch created by Nikki. I told Nikki that after finishing my card I noticed that my image was not strictly like the sketch...Not only that, actually I made a few "mistakes" during the process... I don't know what I was thinking of, sorry sweetie. :)) I think I should stick with the old ideas...LOL

Well, last year I struggled with the Christmas cards until the very last minute. I had some friends to whom I wanted to send a card, but I was late. This year, my first resolution was to make in the future my Christmas cards during the whole year, so I SHOULD get my cards ready to be sent by Thanksgiving's day... and my Christmas will be relax and worry-free... At least, this is the plan, now let's see what happens during the year... Now let me show you my first Christmas card for this year LOL :)) ( All the highlighted items below are from the store "Roses on Paper")

Stamps: Magnolia from the Jingle Jangle Collection
Papers: My Mind's Eye and Bazzill
Inks: Distress re-inkers from Tim Holtz
Embellishments: Drew Drops (from the Silver Bells bottle), Prima Flowers, Brads, charms and ribbons from stash. The little snowflakes are buttons from Wal-mart and they are flat at the back. Stickles ( I added stickles to the snowflakes buttons as well and the effect is really pretty. The picture is too dark to distinguish the little details, sorry)

Gorgeous card Lim, the colours are so pretty and just adore the pretty image which is so beautifully coloured. I think I should start making some through the year to, wouldn't be such a rush come December!!
Thank you so much for my card which arrived a few days ago, I love the black, white and red combo(apologies for the delay!) and wish you a very Happy New Year.

She's just too beautiful! I so adore her and all the details! I love how you color with re-inkers. It's just so soft and beautiful. And the stickles on the flowers make them all look like snowflakes!

Marte said...

This card is so great, Lim! I love the colors and I think you have a clever idea making the christmascards early.. :P I'm anxious to see how it goes, I know I can't do that!! :)

I also love your card below, the one with the angel and the cake. Lately, I have been experimenting with the same stamp, trying to figure out what the angel can hold in his/her hands... :) It's so much fun!


your friend in Norway :)

Your card is stunning Lim, Such wonderful colouring and pretty details. I just love your colouring of this cute little pixie. Oh I am so with you with the Christmas cards and will be starting mine real soon. I was so disappointed with myself this year for not having enough. Big Hugs, Nikki x

this is so gorgeous! I love it, and the coloring is just magical!

Julie said...

The sketch is great and I love your card (even with a little poetic license). What a great idea to do Christmas cards all year long. I usually try to start in September, but this year it was November. I did not get as many done as I had hoped. Keep reminding us and I will try to keep up with you through the year. :)
