I just HAD to make time to join in with the Sugar Bowl challenge this fortnight,
have you seen the prize???

The FULL set of new Sherbet Pips!
How cute are those hunnies???

The challenge for this fortnight is a sketch along with the theme of 'Summer'

As I haven't treated myself to any new Sugar Nellies for quite a while I thought I deserved a new Digi to fit in with the theme - and what is more appropriate than one called 'Summer'! Thing is I bought 'Melissa' whilst I was there too - I can't wait to play with her!

Summer is gorgeous and I only needed to add a little bit of chalk to her to add some colour.

I turned the sketch 90' to accommodate the image. I've used papers from my new favourite make - First Editions, these are from the 'Hideaway' stack. The cute little Ladybugs I'm afraid just seemed to turn up in my stash - I have no idea where they came from - maybe they flew in on the summer breeze!!! They 'Play' sentiment is a TH ticket, it and the doubled ribbon is held on with green staples.

Thanks for visiting me today - I hope you have a fantastic weekend - I'm planning on doing not a lot other than sitting at my desk playing with my toys ;)
