A Spoon Full of Sugar

Don't you just love playing with new goodies.....?! What goodies have I got? Well, I've recently got my mitts on some yummy Magnolia images, thanks to my friend Kirsty and so I've been practicing my colouring on them. I've also purchased some yummy taster sets of Prima flowers from ebay and I totally love them....will defo be buying full size packs of these babies! AND, I have seen so many lovely little charms on everyone elses cards that I thought that I would jump on the bandwagon too! What on earth would we do without ebay eh?!

For this card, I followed the sketch which is this weeks challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. It's a great sketch, you should have a go!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Magnolia.
Paper: Papermania - Retro Flowers, Bazzill Bling.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: White satin ribbon, Prima hydrangeas, Metal charm from ebay, Provocraft rub-on sentiment, glass blobs!

I'm eagerly awaiting yet more stash.... my Stampin' Up loot! I had a great time at the party and Sam was a great hostess, especially as she made the most gorgeous cupcakes for us all! As for my purchases, I could easily have gone seriously crazy as everything is totally gorgeous. However, I was {surprisingly} majorly restrained! I was trying to buy things that would work with my current stash and which fitted my 'style'. I ended up starting small with some DP, card and a stamp set, which is less than I thought I'd get. But, I've now got my eye on coordinating ink pads, some more DP, card and a few of the sentiment sets..... The bug has got me!

Hope you are having a great week - only 2 days to go until 2 days off! Woo-hoo!
