Sugar Bowlin'

This card for The Sugar Bowl #16 really fought me all the way...

I was supposed to stamp the sentiment with another stamp, and had done so, when my kitty came in from the rain, came to say hi by hopping on my craft table and left wet paw prints on the ink. Safe to say Distress ink is NOT waterproof ;P Okay, plan b then, I'll doodle the text. I had a pretty sign all drawn up, when my hubby comes to see what I'm doing and goes "Honey, you know you misspelled that..." I am not Norwegian, and I tried to write "Gratulerer med dagen" but had instead written "Gratureler med dagen". I swear I read it twice and did not notice! At this point I gave up and went to bed. The next day I used single alphabet to make the sentiment, which is correctly spelled now, I HOPE.

The option was to include doodling, which is now present as stitching in the background circle and as the stars.

Final sentiments, blah. Really wasn't my day.

Papers: Stash, raks
Images: Sugar Nellie
Ink: Distress inks
Other: Gray thread, Glossy Accents


  1. Oh no! Naughty kitty - it sounds like something mine would do, mine just sits on top of whatever I'm making without a care in the world!! Fabulous card though, alls well that ends well!
