We're back!

It's Sugar bowl 75 and we're back after a wee break for Christmas.
This time it is my sketch with the theme
"BIRTHDAYS"
a nice easy one to get us all back into the swing after all those festive nibbles and drinks!
Back to normality.
BUMP!

Here's my take on the sketch;


As you can see I've kept to the less is more approach this time.
I am really enjoying working on craft and stripping cards right back.

I have used:
Sugar Nellie digi image Summer.
Spellbinder grand die scalloped square and nestabilities oval.
The papers are DCWV Linen Closet.
Brads from Cathy, trim and rub ons from stash and coloured with prisma pencils.

The sketch;



I've moved a couple of bits around.
Which is allowed.  :)
I wanted to use "Summer" to lift the mood of January....
with promises of warmer weather and sunny days....
not the cold and snow which has yet to arrive...
I hope it stays off till after the show in Birmingham as tickets and classes are booked.
I am not normally that well organised.

The prize this time....
Up for grabs your choice of 4 Sugar Nellie stamps
should we go over the 100 entry mark your choice of 6 SN stamps.

It only remains for me to say....
I hope you enjoy the sketch and as usual you've got to be in it to win it.
"Happy crafting!"
