SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE # 2 - THREE



Firstly, big thanks to Julie and Jane for giving me two more awards, I will upload them later..... The sun is shining here today and I decided to do this challenge with some really beautiful new 'Bo Bunny' papers which I brought from Crafts U Love. They are so bright and cheerful and go so well with some scrummy lemon Bazzill card. The theme this week over at The Sugar Bowl is 'THREE'. Three papers and three embellishments, no more -no less! I have used a beautiful image sent to me by a blogging friend, the above papers, and card. Some 'Prima' Hydranga's, flower buttons and bling brads. I have used a new sentiment stamp from a Hero Arts stamp set. The image was delicately coloured in using my polychromos and water colour pencils.





I have noticed that many of you lovely bloggers have been sharing your craft spaces, so I have decided to share too. Mine is our conservatory. It was orginally built so that the girls could have a room to play/hang in, but my needs were greater as I had so much craft stuff to put somewhere. As you can see, it isn't a very big room, but it is all mine and I love spending time out there, especially with the sun shining. I get a great view of the garden, the bird table and our little pets which watch me craft, our cat Molly is always sharing the table and her fur with me, whilst she watches the birds too. I have a favourite wall (am sad, I know), this is where I hang momentoes of past holidays. I have twelve (bordering on 13) 12 x 12" boxes of paper and cardstock, five plastic storage draws (all full) and a large pink trolley which holds my scrapbooks and paper packs. Various plastic boxes storing my stamps, cards and scraps. I love my little space, I can close the door, listen to all of my fav music and lock myself away..... Right, have the ironing, bathing and dinner to sort, hope your Sunday has been lazier than mine. Thanks for stopping by, have a great week love & hugs Heidi xxxx
