Sugar and Spice



Morning Peeps, Saturday morning and time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Tracy has selected the theme of 'Sugar and Spice', sweet and pretty girly creations or perhaps something for the sweet toothed. Our sponsors this week are Crafty Devils and Scrappers Delight.

Afraid I have been a dreadful blogger this week, we are decorating a couple of the bedrooms and it seems to be taking forever, I am sure when I was younger I could get a room painted in a day, so what changed, a few more years on the clock I guess. So huge apologies I have been so absent in my visits, planning putting hings to rights over the weekend.

For my card.................which has been beautifully enhanced by Ignacio, thank you...............I have gone with the girly element and used one of the pretty new Colourful Flower Fairies from Nicecrane, Graphic 45 DP's, lace and ribbons. I really like the floral dress on this fairy and made three Peruvian Lilies to match using Ruth's Tonic Punch and Stamp set, shading the flowers with a little Pan Pastel and some ribbon which I curled to echo those in the fairies hands.

Have a lovely weekend.

  26. Beautiful card Brenda, thanks for the comment on my card, I've been so busy and under the weather lately that I've been a very bad blogger... All the cards I've been making have been for orders, I feel like I'm turning into a one-woman factory line! Haven't had the chance to be properly creative for nearly 6 months...urgh! Hopefully the orders will settle down soon hehe :)

    Hope you're doing well!

  32. Oh wow Brenda this is so beautiful I totally love that wonderful image also the colours and card design an excellent creation, Brenda I can also remember the times when I could paint a room really quickly now it takes longer for me to make up my mind to get it done, I have had a pot of paint for a few months now but just cannot get motivated to use it, lol, hope all is well with you.

  34. Beautiful card Brenda! So whimsical. A true floral fantasy.
    We're doing some redecorating at home, too. I'm calling it internal redecorations programme to make me feel better about why it takes ages these days. .. I've decided that in the past I might have painted a room in a day but that was because there was no time spent waiting for the first coat to dry, no perfecting of the corners with a fine brush, no proper preparation and execution etc. So the only thing that has changed is the fact that now we are wise enough to do things properly lol. xx
