A Sugar Rush

Hello, good start to the year here, weather is pretty mild and it's dry. And as for me!

Well I think following a few challenge themes has motivated me. Must try this more often. A sketch, oooo was hard to keep on track, wanted to incorporate circles and squares to mount my image for a change. A colour combo challenge, could of mixed paper pads but managed to find a My Mind's Eye with the lot so fingers crossed!
Love the new Nesties set I bought just before Christmas, a wee treat to myself, the butterflies are just a perfect size and loving the flower and flourish. Going to be a real handy set I think. Ha ha! Have I lead you astray? Tempted you lol! Do tell me, love being a devil!

Now I had to come back and tell you this! I just went to Christine's blog and she had something on using Jewel Flowers and Flourishes and I thought I really must get this its too pretty!! But then I thought hmmmmm let me look in my Spellbinders drawer and tucked at the back what did I see????? ..... yes you guessed it - an unopened pack of Jewel Flowers and Flourishes!!!!! I am not safe to be let loose sometimes, I think I am definitely loosing the plot!! Now I am off to have a play with my new (???) dies xx

Hi Carol, Happy New Year, I haven't been looking for a few days, all your recent cards are gorgeous. You have been busy, maybe keeping the brain away from sad thoughts and happy memories. Hope 2013 brings lots of happy healthy times...Trish
