A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge & Blog Candy Alerts

I was so disappointed that I didn't get a chance to play over at A Spoonful of Sugar last week. The week just rushed by! This week, the challenge is to add a charm or a "charming" figure. Well, I just made this card last night and although there is no charm I think that both Charlie and his faithful sidekick are very charming! I found this amazing DP (should have bought more) and thought it would work well as a background scene! Charlie and his dog are on one stamp but I actually cut the little dog out and popped him on with some dimensionals to give a more 3-D look! The actual scene is also popped up with dimensionals. It looks pretty sharp. Let me know what you think! I created another card with the same DP using another WOJ stamp but I can't show you all until Saturday since it is for The Sketch Saturday Challenge!
  • Stamps: WOJ Charlotte & Charlie Winter Collection, Sentiment from Verve Stamps
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Blue Bayou
  • Paper: SU! Blue Bayou, Best Creations Inc. DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: SU! Snowflake, Blue Bayou Ribbon
  • Tools: Spellbinders Ribbon Tag, Cuttlebug

Also wanted to let you know about a couple of blog candies that I found! These ladies are amazingly talented and visiting their blogs was a real treat! So go on over. The goodies are wonderful! Carol and Beth

That's it for now. Enjoy your day. We have sunshine again (yippee!) I shall go and enjoy my back-yard for the last time in a while. The excavation starts tomorrow for the extension! Can you see 3 little boy's faces plastered to the window in absolute delight over all the manly vehicles?
