The Sugar Bowl


Evening everyone! How's your day been? It's been pretty good this end and have had a lovely time having my mil here, and she so enjoyed seeing Leo again. Seems we're back to the wet weather again though doesn't it?!

It's Sugar Bowl time again and this time it's a gorgeous sketch by Marlene with the please include option of doodling. Now I haven't included doodling but if you want to be eligible for the prize then you must include it. The prize this time is a pick and mix of Sugarnellie stamps-who wouldn't love that!

I forgot to tell you yesterday about my sewing machine, a bit ago I said my brother machine needed a service but I think it didn't really love me putting card through it so I decided to save mr brother for just material and get a ickle machine purely for cardmaking and such. So after seeing a few recommendations..I got a sweet little Janome mini off an ebay shop for about £30 which arrived yesterday-and I love it! It's a good little sturdy machine, good speed, easy to use so I would definetly recommend it. So..I've got some stiching on this card, really missed adding it when I was without a machine, I think it finishes things off lovely like:)

Stuff: sugarnellie stamp 'ropeswing' coloured with copics and promarkers, mme wild asparagus and papermania regency papers, core'dination card, distressing tool, k and co rub on, prima flowers, pm brad, sewing machine, distress inks in antique linen and vintage photo, martha stewart doily lace punch.

Craft Stamper mag is out soon, Friday I think, though if you subscribe you'll have it already and a fab one it is too-especially since my teamie Judy's work is on the front cover! She's done a fab feature on stitching...you must check it out! Well am off to catch up with Big Brother, see yas tomorrows:)
