Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Welcome back to another challenge!

Before I share the challenge for this week,
I just want to say thank you to all who entered our "Shapes Card" challenge last week.
There were an unbelievable amount of amazing cards to admire and drool over.

if you are one of the lucky winners!

And now for the new challenge at
Top Tip Tuesday
we'd like to see you

One of our fantastic DT members, Paula
is demonstrating how to make a slider card.
Here's a sneak peek...

Her tutorial is spot on and you'll love how detailed 
and easy to follow her instructions are.

Ok, what could I win, you ask?
I'm glad you did because here are our generous sponsors
for this weeks challenge.

The Top Tipper prize for this week is from
Who is offering one book from their amazing collection!

Here's my DT card example

I decided to use of my own doodled images for this challenge
because the image reminds me of the stuffed animals that you
might find in a little girls room.
Also, just a reminder, this and other images that I've done are free to use,
so if you're interested, just click the image to to take you to my
other "Doodled by" post.

Lace and bows, ribbons and gems, pearls and frame,

This is gorgeous Lisa.. and your image is just soo sweet, wow, well done on that, love it. Now I'll just have to grab it, thank you and thank you also for the really sweet comment you left me on my post recently, you are so nice :) Big hugs xx

Lynn B. said...

You're doodle is so sweet. I'm gonna use it as soon as I can figure out how to print it without having it take up an entire page. I've run into that trouble with your son's doodles. I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to computerish things. *sigh* But I'll figure it out eventually. Please tell Brendan that I'm planning how to use his doodle monsters as soon as I can figure out that one glitch. I just love his monsters.

I hope you and your family are well and that you're all settled in at your new house.

All kinds of love! Lynn

Thanks so much for your lovely comment Lisa. It made me laugh too! And aren't you the crafty one...making your own images. One day I figure on giving that a try too....but still too busy colouring at the moment! Have yourself and wonderful day.

Your card is fab and how cool that you can draw your own images! I can't draw to save my life (which is one of the reasons I scrapbook, LOL!!) Thanks for your kind comment on my blog.
