Whimsy sponsors A Spoonful of Sugar

The challenge over at Spoonful of Sugar
this week is being sponsored by
and the theme is a recipe
1 patterned paper, 1 embossing, 1 button and 1 ribbon
Yikes, wasn't keen on those 1's!
I decided to use Whimsy Stamps 'A cool ride' one of the carousel horses designed by Crissy Armstrong. It is a nice big image so I woudn't miss my usual layering!
The Whimsy Inspirations Blog is now open, the design team will be taking turns to showcase their favourite Whimsy creations and we will be watching blogland for Whimsy creations that catch our eye to feature too!
The Whimsy Online Store is now stocking Charms, there is a fantastic selection over there and such a great price too!

I used the sketch from the Totally Gorjuss Challenge. Not totally convinced I followed the sketch well, I turned it round and got confused! I am very easily confused!
Can also enter Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge the theme is punch it and bling it!
The secret crafter saturday challenge is asking for monochrome, tones of one colour + white.
Allsorts Challenge would like to see distressing, button(s) and bows.
My ingredients
Whimsy Stamps ~ A Cool Ride
Whimsy Stamps ~ Whimsy Holiday Postmarks
Basic Grey ~ Figgy Pudding 'Silent Night'
Image coloured with Copics
Edges distressed and stamped with Distress inks ~ Antique linen and Tea Dye
Cuttlebug and snowflakes embossing folder
Martha Steward border punch
EK Success snowflake punch
ribbon and gems
Thanks for dropping in!

Hi Deb

This is just lovely and really like the colours you have used.

I have seen that horse image several times now and really do like it, think I definately 'need' it - easier to look after than the ones I have as well - won't need mucking out every morning.

Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

This is delightful! Sometimes less is more I guess and you have certainly made this card more wonderful by the simplicity of the layout and the beautiful embellishments. Warmest wishes, Lesley
