As always the SUGAR BOWL has one if not the best prizes for a challenge blog in blog land. A set of the new nestabillities and your choice of any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. The winner is a random number and you have two weeks to join in and complete this sketch, the sketch has been provided by Marlene who is currently cold in France , lets hope all that wine helps keep her warm LOL
It's a simple enough sketch with the theme of boys, I know I know, you like pretty things, girly pinks, lots of flowers and bling, but the point of a challenge is to make you try something outside your box. There are boys/men out there, at a wild guess I would say 50% of the population are male! Some one soon in you family needs you to make them a card so combine the two and get your mojo working.
Welcome also to the new sweeties who have started there time on the bowl with this challenge. Good to see the team growing and such amazing talent all in one place, all the samples are inspiring and "cool" you cant call a masculine card beautiful can you?
I am so glad that the girls remember to watermark their pictures, you would not believe the amount of picture I have on file and to have them watermarked is essential,
PLEASE remember to watermark everything that appear on your blog, especially if its something that can be printed off , especially a stamp image from any company, it is a small thing but it annoys me greatly that some crafters will just print it for free or even print it and sell it! YES I know you will be shocked at that but believe me you would get your eyes opened wide if I were to tell you about the "dark side" of crafting.
But we are all about rainbows and sweet things so lets not go there.
Speaking of sweet things here is another one of the soon to be released Country Cousins. So what do you thing this girl is up to, she's got her walking boots on, a trek in the woods, some orienteering with a map as a back ground, heading off in a new direction, with a compass as an embellishment. Off to camp for the summer or a school trip, these are all the things I have to think about when I choose a design, is it usable, how many uses does it have, will it offer variety and there for good value for money, one stamp many uses, that's the choices I have to make on a daily basis. Hopefully I get it right more time than I get it wrong LOL
Thank you to the girls who take time to leave me a comment, its good to know I am not speaking to myself most of the time! Also thanks to the regulars who have offered to help me out with the bounty of new designs on my table, your offer is very generous and yes I would like to take some of you up on that, be in touch soon.
take care and stay warm
