Sugar Bowl 27.

Hi girls, here I am late as usual with my entry for the Sugar Bowl challenge. Not as late as I have been but not very early either!

This is a lovely sketch from Kathy and I really enjoyed using it. I coloured this sweet manga girl with Promarkers. The added option for this challenge is distressing so I distressed all the edges with my scissors and then edged them with antique linen Distress Ink. I added some lovely Prima flat back pearls to match and a Prima flower and that is it...finished. I actually spent more time trying to find plain card to match the DP. Nightmare......every card I looked at was either too green or too blue. The one I eventually chose still didn't seem right but now that the card is finished I'm wondering what all the fuss was about lol!!

I haven't had much to show this week but I have got a DT card made and posted and a scheduled post written (please be good Mr Blogger!) for Sunday morning at 9am which is when you will find out what the next challenge is at Just Cute Bears. Tomorrow I will organise my DT card for Totally Gorjuss and then my time is my own to maybe get a couple of challenges done.

I've already been out one night this week and I'm going out on Friday as well and then off to my daughter's in Crieff on Saturday and Sunday. I'm looking forward to seeing her and her husband and the kids again. It's been a few weeks since we saw them. We have got 2 toyboxes to take with us. My dad made them for my kids so hubby has been painting them for Poppy and Oliver. Catriona also wanted a bouncing Tigger that was hers and a Winnie the Pooh cross stitch that I made for her. We also found a picture of Catriona lying in one of the toyboxes when she was about Poppy's age and another one out in the garden climbing into a washing basket. And she's always liked cars because we found a piccie of her in Iain's pedal car!

I'm off to enter that challenge and check out the entries for Totally Gorjuss and Just Cute Bears. The number of entries for both of these challenges has been really encouraging but it does take a wee while to look at everyone's entries and leave a comment. I like to try to comment as much as I can because I know it feels a bit discouraging if you enter a challenge and no-one acknowledges your work.

I'm really looking forward to my day off tomorrow and I'm not going to make the mistake of going anywhere. I'm really going to make the most of my time off to get some crafting done.
