A late post from me tonight. The children didn’t settle that early so I’ve sacrificed a little sleep for some crafting me time :-)

I have loved Sugar Nellie stamps for a long time, in fact I think they were the first ‘Cute’ stamps I bought. Before that it was all florals, patterns and sentiments. So I was excited to see that The Sugar Bowl challenge is coming back and more so because they are having a DT call.

I dithered for a bit about which image to use, so I coloured several up but it was the lovely cute Alicia that finally made it onto a card.

With such an adorable image I wanted to go for a fairly CAS look. I’ve used a paper with a lovely small pattern and cut, embossed and glittered a frame from pale pink card. The sentiments are clear stamps so I curved them on the acrylic block to follow the shape of the frame.
