A Spoon Full Of Sugar

Gotta get back into the swing of things now, it's hard when you've been away and had a fab time!!! For the next 7 weeks or so I will be sooo busy, we are moving out of our house at the end of August and moving into a new house on the 1st September, with the new school year starting on the 2nd September!! The two youngest are going to a new school and my eldest boy is going to be boarding through the week and coming home at the weekends. Still haven't sorted out his journey yet. And.. my eldest daughter is leaving us in September to start Uni in the UK. A sad time for me.
Anyway enough waffling here is my Spoon Full Of Sugar card for this week. The challenge is a sketch designed by Debbie.

Here is the sketch

And here is my card

I have used Basic Grey Lily Kate papers and layered them all onto some blue Bazill cardstock. I then stitched around the edges with white cotton in a zigzag stitch. The image is a digi image from CC Designs and is called Swiss Pixies, Gretel. I have used promarkers to colour her and I again layered her onto the Bazill. The flowers and spacers are from my stash.

This week the prize for one lucky winner is a Space Ian stamp kindly donated by Bryony of Silly Monkey Crafts.A pic is on the ASOS blog.
