The Sugar Bowl - Anything goes

Last Thursday of the month means a new challenge at the Sugar Bowl. 
I used Furry Friends Love Songs, coloured with Distress inks Smoked Hickory and Vintage Photo. Created my own background with Distress ink Tumbled Glass and added some wooden music decorations.

All you need to enter is a Sugar Nellie image and you can add some more of the gorgeous images to your stash if you are one of the lucky winners of the challenge.

Allsorts - Easter

The challenge this week at Allsorts is themed Easter. I made a card using the image Rabbit Parka from our sponsor Scrapper's Delight. It's adorable in itself so together with the cute backing paper I didn't need much else :).
Today my destination is our new shopping mall Avion, parts of my chorus are singing there today. And with a gathering of 90 shops - next door to IKEA - I might have a bag or two with me home... :)

Allsorts - spring is in the air

These past few days we could feel spring in the air even up here in the north, with bright sunshine from a clear blue sky and snow melting and dripping from the roofs. So the Allsorts challenge this week is just perfect since it is Spring is in the air. I coloured some Lili of the Valley-bears and made a background from Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold Distress Inks - sprayed with perfect pearls. A golden ribbon from Crafty Ribbons was a nice finish, and fitting since they sponsor this challenge :).
