Sugar Sugar




Good Morning. I had a little fun with the Sugar Sugar Project of the Month Challenge last night, this month Marlene gave a tutorial on Paper Beads, the team wanted us to give these a try and I have to say I'm glad I did, they are so easy to make and look beautiful on cards, something the kids would have fun with too. I have used K and Co paper (Roam) for the beads and for the card, a little sugar nellie stamp coloured using distress inks. (still experimenting with the inks) I'm in need of a new paper cutter as you can probably see on the card lol, still trying to find out which one would be best as the last one I bought was such a disappointment. Right, off to do some housework (yawn) was hoping I would wake up and the fairies would have done it but........no, no sign of them, think they prefer to hide things from me. Enjoy your day. x
