It's official

Hello blogworld

Its challenge time at Divas by Design and we are now a weekly challenge blog! With a brand new look as well - isn't it shiveringly gorgeous!

From this week there are now three teams and I'm one of Team A.  It will seem strange not joining in on every challenge and to be honest I couldn't even remember which Team I was on originally!  I just felt like a Diva - oooh how hubby would agree with that statement!

One last time, though, for joining in when I'm not supposed to!  This is officially Team C week, but to celebrate us now being weekly, I thought I'd join in the party.

Our sponsors this week are:


To make it an easy first week on everyone this time the challenge is Anything Goes and here is my contribution:

I dug out one of my long term favourite stamp ranges, but I'm so bad - I think I'd only ever inked it once!!!  Soooo badddddd!!!

Anyway here are the details:

Stamp is Sugar Nellie: Leanne Ellis; Pick Me - coloured with my Flexmarkers and Promarkers.
I then inked the background of the image with a pear colour ink pad and stamped, with the same inkpad, a swirl on it (will have to go dig out which swirl I used).
Bit of Stickles on the flower.
Papers are all First Edition pad - Up, Up and Away
Swirly buckle is a Memory Box Die - Seville Buckle
Gems and ribbon from my stuff
Craftwork cards sentiment.

There you go - I've shown you mine, now show us yours!  Why not pop over and see the gorgeous cards my fellow Divas have created.  Looking forward to seeing yours!


A challenge, or two:

The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 76; Gayle's Sketch (sorry not followed the paper piecing - you really, really don't want to see my rubbish cutting out skills - and I thought the stamp background looked so much like the paper that I could cheat!!!)

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge #149; Diamonds or Pearls - well diamonds, of course, aren't they a girls best friend!

Your card is just beautiful Sarah! I love your color combination. It's ok if you don't follow the option, it's using a Sugar Nellie image & following the sketch that's important. ;) Thank you for playing in the Sugar Bowl challenge!
