A Spoon Full of Sugar..... Is Good for Everyone!

Hi there bloggers!!  I am so excited, cause today, I am a special guest at A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog!!  Thanks so much ladies for the opportunity to be among all you fabulous gals on this great blog!!  This weeks challenge theme is all things Vintage and Shabby!!! Isn't that a wonderful theme!!  Who doesn't loooooove vintage?  This fabulous challenge blog posts challenges every Tuesday and have some super prizes so be sure to submit your cards ladies to be in the chance to win.  This week the blog is sponsored by Digital Delights who are gratefully donating 3 digital images to the winner! Whooo hooo.  If you don't know about this fabulous company by Louby Lou, here is some information about them:

Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!  In addition we also have a growing range of "Delightful Piecing s" which are paper pieced files designed to be used with your cutting machines or for hand cutting.Fancy a new blog makeover, header or new watermark, then stop by our sister site Delightful Custom blogs.

Now bloggers, for my design.... 

This was a real challenge for me cause any of you followers know that I do not usually do "Vintage" but this week I decided to have some fun with a design that I first saw a little while ago on the blog of the very fabulously talented Marlena called Paper Papillon.  Now of course many of you are familiar with Marlena's work as I only recently found out that she is a contributor to this fabulous Challenge Blog.  So thanks Marlena for the inspiration.

This sidestep card was really fun to make and I only wish that I had taken progressive photo's as it was fun to see it transformed from a singular piece of cream cardstock to this.  I cut the lamp and the flower vase from the card at the back and then popped them up so that they appeared to be sitting on the dresser.  I then prettied up the back with some extra card stock and pretty paper.

I then decorated the side and made a cute tag.  The flowers are all handmade and beaded (thanks Drew from Scrappy Happiness for your excellent lollipop flower tutorial).  Now for the close-ups. 

Well bloggers, that's it for me.  Thanks for joining me again today and popping over to see what I have been up to.  Be sure to jump over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and check out the designs that the other lovely designers have created for you this week also.  Once again ladies, thanks for having me on your fabulous challenge site.  Until next time, happy scrapping/stamping.

Hi there bloggers!!! Firstly a quick note regarding my very limited appearance on my blog lately (actually, everywhere on the internet)  I have been experiencing continual internet problems since the last windows update was installed. So to all my bloggers, my sincere apologies.  I am expecting to have the issue repaired over the next week!! Yipeeee!!!  

Secondly, its Drunken Stampers time (actually I am a little late due to my issues but nonetheless) and the challenge this week is a colour one!  You must use teal, coral and purple, geee it was a toughie.  The super excellent news is that we have a sponsor this week....drum roll please....ddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr D.R.S Designs is in da pub this week!! For any of you that are not familiar with this excellent company here is a little about them:

D.R.S Designs - a family owned company since 1950 boasts hundreds of original rubber stamp designs. All images are available fully mounted, completely unmounted or mounted on cling cushion and are proudly hand crafted in the USA. Our rubber stamp collection includes a wide assortment of images including tons of sentiments, easy background designs and fun technique stamps such as our stained glass and plaid designs. The D.R.S Designs website features a huge card sample gallery, online demos and tips, a secure shopping area and information on our free club, Rubber Mania Monthly.

So head on over to DRS Designs to check out what stamps are available.  In the meantime, here is a little peek....

Isn't he cute!! I have used Jelly Bunny Bean and Four Corner Butterfly which has four designs on it including the butterfly's and the little branches that I have added to the Jelly Bunny Bean image.  I thought he was perfect for including some Easter treaties.  I have just used a old brads container (I am such a hoarder) and have cut a hole in his tummy big enough for it to fit through.  To access the treats you just open your card and open the little box which is glued to the card, easy!!!

For more examples of what stamps are available check out my fellow designers (their links are in my sidebar) and view their fabulous creations.  Make sure you give them some love whilst you are there and don't forget to head on over to D.R.S. Designs to check out their full range of stamps.
