Friends...........Time Well Spent.......


Well my first card of 2009, i took my time didn't i...hehehehe

I created this card for a friend to say thank you, and decided to enter it into the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl...... there is a wonderful sketch from Tiets you really should check out her yummy creations......

The first sketch is a very special one with a very special candy, three sets of Pro markers, i have a few of these and they are wonderful, and blend beautifully, funnily enough i used them in this card...
I've been itching to use these papers all through the Autumn, but was too ill, so finally i can start playing, they are so scrummy....... Lots of layering on this one and i wanted to also use the stamps a friend sent to me for Christmas, i am quite pleased with how it came out....

I stitched each of the layers because i felt it would make the card too heavy if i double layered each piece the way i normally do.... and surprise surprise i decorated the inside and back of the card, it really does finish them off so beautifully, i was inspired to do this after seeing Claudia do it so often.....
Hopefully this card will make the recipient smile.. :-)
Here are the ingredients: Sugar Nellie Stamp ~ SU Stamps Time Well Spent (From Lovely Claudia For Christmas) ~ Eva DP ~ Bazzill CS ~ BG Eva Glazed & Matching Brads ~ Pro-Markers ~ Kaiser Craft Gems ~ Janome Mini For The Mountain Of Stitching....
