First dip in the Sugar Bowl!

This is the first time I've joined a challenge at the Sugar Bowl. Basically because I don't have any Sugar Nellie stamps! This stamped image is another one kindly given to me by my friend Sue.

Sugar Nellie stamped image, Doodlebug papers, Copics

I shaded the image with copics and then used various Doodlebug papers to follow the sketch. Not sure if I like this one, feels a bit 'busy' for me!

News of a new challenge blog. For those of you who like images by The Greetings Farm, Dawny P has set up a blog 'Anyone for Anya'. Challenges start on the 25th August.

Busy day today, friends visiting this morning then I become Domestic Goddess again as cooking birthday dinner for my hubby, his parents and my mum. His birthday isn't until Monday but celebrating tonight. I'm making, baked breaded Camembert for starter, then steak with potatoes dauphinoise and various veg followed by home made chocolate fudge cake, providing I can follow the recipe I've found!

Wish me luck, it could be a stressful one!

I am sure you are busy, always keep the baby first...big {{{{hugs}}} to you.
