So guys guess what time it is?
It's Sugar Bowl  challenge time.  
We had a wee bit longer off over the festive season but as it's Sugar Nellie stamps second birthday....

...we have not one but two prizes. 
The prizes are Spellbinder Nestabilities and Sugar Nellie stamps worth over £50.
That's two prizes worth over £50!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Sugar Nellie!

The challenge has been set by the wonderful Marlene and the sketch is as follows:

The theme to go with the challenge is to use "embossing" this can either be heat or using an embossing folder.
For my card I have used:
Stamp:  Home Grown Manga girl 2, SU "4 you ".
Paper:  Black and craft, Jillibean black bean, inch garlic salt.
  Oval Nestabilities, small leaf punch and MS edger punch new scallop.
Cuttlebug Dots embossing folder.
Embellishments from stash and copics to colour.

I love the Manga with attitude! 
I wanted to use totally different colours to my last couple of Sugar bowl challenges so I have taken out the colour and turned to craft...which seems to be having a bit of a revival of late then teamed it up with black....we all need a bit of black after over indulging at Christmas, LOL!
Better than extra exercise!

Before I sign off I would just like to take the opportunity to wish you all a
"Happy New Year!"
May 2011 be the best for you all...with plenty of happy crafting time and lots of yummy new rubber!
I look forwards to seeing what you create.
