Sticky sweet

     Are you going into sugar overload?   LOL  Yes, I know this card looks like something that belongs in a candy shop.  Makes it's point doesn't it. :-)
     Tammy has re-released some images this week in the A Day For Daisies store that relate to the fair.  Cotton candy, caramel apples and Merry Go Round rides.  I chose to use the cotton candy image.  I've had a bottle of pink Martha Stewart flocking in my craft drawer forever and this was the perfect chance to use it. Looks pretty realistic huh?  :-)
     We'd love to have you join in our challenge at the ADFD blog.  There's still a week left on the "Anything but a card" challenge.
     Happy Friday!


Supplies

  • Paper:  Recollections, Kraft Outlet Light Kraft, Copic XPress-it Blending card
  • Stamp:  A Day For Daisies "Cotton Candy"
  • Ink:  Copics, Micron pen
  • Tools:  sewing machine
  • Miscellaneous:  lace from my stash, Martha Stewart flocking

YUM! Fairy Floss is my favourite! We have one show here in brisbane and they have slowly phased out the fairy floss...but every year we walk around to every stand to try and find it! :D
