Hey Sugar!

Hi! Another blogging break, soz! Not much time for card making at the mo, I'm back at work and my little lady has just started crawling - fun times! ;-)
I'm back with a little romantic card I've made using the Simon Says Stamp 'Hey Sugar' set. I stamped and layered the cookies with different card stocks, embossed the matching toppings then covered with a layer of glossy accents. I sort of wish I hadn't done this last step as I'd sponged the cookies for a bit of dimension and I think I it made it run, hey ho! I also used these super old Basic Grey 'Bittersweet' papers, they're one of very few paper pads that I've almost used up - just a few scraps left! I've used this weeks Just Us Girls inspiration photo, the Paper Players sketch and I'm also going to enter into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for looking - if anyone is still out there reading this poor neglected blog! ;-)
