A spoonfull of sugar dt

Late AGAIN!! life is getting in the way of all the importanta things like crafting these days and i am just not finding enough hours in the day for the  things I GOTTA DO! Well now that i got that off my chest on to the fun stuff.

We have a new challenge on A spoofull of sugar, "Christmas in August", this hopefully will give you a head start to the busy schedule when the festive season comes round, so hop over to the challenge blog and start on all those Christmas cards.

For mine i am using a darling little image from Mo's digital pencil too, called "I even love the box".
He's colored with my copics, sorry forgot to list my colors, i know, i know, should tie something round my neck to help me remember.  I used my MS punch around the page for the layer behind my image, used a few stickles on his gift bow, and some flower soft aroung the edge of the santa hat and the pom pom amd a few pearls to finish it off.  I felt that since the image was the focal point and the MS around the page mat took up so much space on my card i just wanted to leave as CAS as possible.


  1. oh Paola, such a precious card. Love the hat of the little boy.

  2. Awww I absolutely luv it!!! Haven't had chance to use my little boy yet. You've done a brilliant job with him my special friend. Luv the MS punch around the page, I need one of them lol! Lotsa luv xxxx
