There's a Stranger in Town!'s true...none stranger than me!! I finallllllly got to make a card for pleasure and join in with a challenge.......but it's been so long I forgot how to colour!! lol

I pulled out this Sugar Nellie "oldie" image to join in the Sugar Bowl's current sketch challenge created by the lovely Marlene....the option is to use zig-zag somewhere...I've added zig-zag stitching in a few places!

I've used Basic Grey paper (love the colours in this line), Prima flowers, Melissa Frances rub-ons, and new ribbon and gem-thingys I picked up on my hols!

Yep, I had a soooooouper time on holibobs to the states (Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!!) lots of new "toys" and will enjoy using them all now! I've also been very busy with cardmaking and scrapbooking classes which has taken a lot of my time, amongst a few other things which is why I haven't been on here or blogging very much....hopefully I'll have a bit more time now though!
