The Sugar Bowl: Challenge 60 - Maria Therese's Sketch

Well this is a new one for me.  Have watched the Sugar Nellie blog for ages, then watched the Sugar Nellie challenge blog - The Sugar Bowl, as well but never entered a card before.

Today I figured I'd take the plunge, not in any way figuring that I'll ever get a sniff of winning one of their challenges, have you seen the cards that are submitted - fantastic!  But I am quietly pleased with this card and as I've said before, I do like a sketch to follow.

So here we go with the pics and card details:

 Second picture is to try and show the glitter on the flower in hair and ring, hmm don't know if it's worked.
So the stamp is a Leanne Ellis one - Tell Me Something, coloured with my Prisma pencils.  The papers are all Craftwork cards and the flower from my stuff.  I put a tiny bit of glitter on the flower and ring.  The strip is a Martha Stewart deep punch.

So for my meanderings. Today little one does a long day at Nursery (8.30 - 2.40), what a mood she was in when I got her! She is suddenly becoming little Miss Independent, she would not have me open the car door for her but she didn't have the strength to open it herself.  There we are at an impasse! So she has a temper tantrum because I open the door and get her into the car seat, she calmed down on the way home!  Oh the joys of motherhood - wouldn't change it (or her) for the world though.

I'm entering this card into

Gorgeous card Sarah! Fab image and love the splash of colour with the black & white.

I have similar problems with my 3yr old - he will insist on getting into his car seat by himself, so I have to stand there while he climbs and wriggles and makes us late... if I end up helping him he'll have a tantrum. Little darlings eh?! Lisa x
