Making a List, Checking It Twice...

...Santa has probably made his list and checked it twice already. Chosen and wrapped all the presents for the good girls and boys (got a stash of coal ready for the naughty ones). Re-painted the sleigh, fed the reindeer and programmed his route into the SatNav.

Unfortunately, I am not quite as organised as Santa this year. I still have cards to write, gifts to buy and wrap and meals to plan.
Thankfully the Sweeties are much better organised and have made their cards for todays Sugar Bowl challenge ( except for one naughty girl who will be getting so much coal in her stocking this year - me!)
We have a fabulous sketch made by the lovely sweetie Maria and the optional theme is 'no designer paper'.

Maria's beautiful card uses the image Hello Little Robin.  Maria has made her own paper with stamps and ink, and very pretty and effective it is too.

Fiona's WoW card using the image Fifi Goes Walkies is simply stunning. Fi has used embossing folders to create her textured papers.

Pat has used the stamp Old Saint Nick for her gorgeous festive card, and she's whipped out the embossing folders too.
These are just 3 examples of how you can make a fabulous and beautiful card with no DP at all.
To see the rest of the sweeties cards and for the sketch please visit the Sugar Bowl blog.
Because we have all been such good little Sweeties this year, our Mama Gayle has given us a nice break over the holiday period, so this sketch will be open until the evening of January 11th...which means you have a whole 4 weeks to get inky and enter the challenge.

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx

All three of these cards are so sweet! I love the embossing and stamping too for the background.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Now be gentle with yourself Elaine - you've been so busy helping Santa with deliveries that it's not really surprising that you've not had time for much else.
Think you must have a halo with Chief Elf written on it!

Oh crack me up!! I'll bet Santa won't even notice just how very naughty you've been this year! Your secret's safe with me, honey bunny! Hugs. Pat Frank

Fiona said...

you are so funny Elaine!! You have been extra good in other ways so I'm sure Santa won't bring you coal.
