A Spoon Full of Sugar #85 & New Releases

Welcome to my little blog - it's great to have you here. I really wish that having taken the trouble to visit you find something that makes you visit worthwhile. If you find something to please the eye, great but if you find something to get the mojo juices moving, even better.
Another day with no snow falling but the old stuff shows no sign of disappearing. It is still really cold outside - not that I have been out. Still it gives all the more excuse for staying in and spending time in the craftroom - you know what the say "It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good".
I made this card for the current Spoon Full of Sugar challenge where the theme was "Hearts". It was a great opportunity to ink up Magnolia's "Tilda with Hearts" which this time is coloured using some Polychromos pencils that I used for the first time and I must admit I found them very relaxing to use. I have in fact mixed in some Copic Ciaos as well. I cut round Tilda and mounted her on top of the card. The papers are GCD Studio's "No Worries" and an unknown yellow paper with hearts on it. I manufactured a frame from a hearts border cut using a Martha Stewart punch and placed it over the papers.
I enjoyed making this card and hope that you find it pleasing. Perhaps you will have time to leave a comment to let me know. I love reading your input and find your views very helpful.


I thought I would give you a quick preview of the next two images coming from Crafty Sentiments, they should be available shortly. Why not give the shop a visit.
I hope you have a very happy and productive crafting day.
