So Sweet

We've had nowt but rain on and off this week, so I have decided to go bright and cheerful with this one. I love House Mouse, but only have one of their stamps, there a bit on the expensive side for me. So I rely on candy wins and RAK's etc so I can play along with the challenges, but I do adore them, and last week I won one of the prizes on the House Mouse blog hop, it was Christine's (nanseaside), I got gorgeous flowers and lots of stamped images to keep me going for a while. Because of the card they are stamped on, it was a reason to bring out the Promarkers. And as the theme was sweets, i drew and glossed three handmade wrapped sweeties.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:-
1. Friday Sketchers - challenge # 106 - Sketch (rotated)
2. Simon Says Stamp -Recipe - 1 Image, 2DP's, 3 Types of Embellies -( I chose the handmade sweets, ribbon, gems )
3. House Mouse - challenge # 71 - "Sweet"
4. Stamp Something - Happy Somethings (Iused a fun/happy image)

Stamps - House Mouse, Sugar Nellie sentiment,
Papers - from a pick 'n' mix box,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers, Broken china distress inks for the jar,
Tools - Cuttle bug, swiss dots emboss folder, Nesties,
Embellishments - Glossy accents, ribbon, Papermania Gems,

Thank you for stopping by, have a great week
Happy crafting
