Sweet Sunday {sprinkles} #53

Happy Happy Sunday!!!! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend.

Well today is of course Sweet Sunday Sketch time and Karen has set us yet another fabulous sketch to work with.

I had SO much fun making this card... I got to play with my BRAND NEW stamp set, which I have to say was absolutely, without a doubt, made for my Beautiful Jorja and I. If you've dropped by before you've probably heard me mention that Jorja (who is 3) and I go on little "Sprinkle Drink" dates.... SO MUCH FUN!!!! Well the minute... nope actually the SECOND I saw this I just knew I HAD to have it, should there have been any doubts in my mind this prompt reaction of "oooohhh WOW Mummy!!!... Sprinkles... (insert *gasp*.... WOW Mummy a Donut!!!" in such excitement that only a sweet three year old could portray, DEFINATELY sealed the deal.

Here is the card I've made in all it's Sweet Sunday "Sprinkle" Goodness:-

And a little close up of the little "Sprinkle Glazed" Donut!!!:-

And here is the gorgeous sketch from Karen:-

You may notice that there is NO steam coming from the little drink... well I have to admit it is quite intentional.. you see I thought it only fair I make the very first card with my FABULOUS new set for Jorja... so this is her little "Sprinkle" drink... which is usually COLD and fully of FROTHY goodness... hahaha.

I've used Riding Hood Red as the base of my card and added some Riding Hood Red DP from the Candy Lane pack. I cut some circles one in Close to Cocoa and one in some Watercolour paper. The cup image is stamped in Cocoa and then I restamped it onto some DP and paper pieced it before sticking it to the main image... oooh that was a bit exciting too... I've not done any Paper Piecing before... there's a little story in that... perhaps one I'll share another day.. I don't want to scare you all away with my crazy antics!!!..I coloured the FROTHY goodness in using my blender pens and some So Saffron ink. Now for the Donut!!!... Well watching this little delight come to life was SOOOOO much fun... (Lee!!!! Don't you think???..*waving*)... and I must admit to there being rather random and loud squeals of joy and excitement all the way!!!!. Again i stamped the image in Cocoa and then coloured the base of the donut in Creamy Caramel and the top in Regal Rose... then I used some Crystal Effects to GLAZE it and added some "Sprinkles". The sentiment is also from the Sprinkled with Love set (Taylored Expressions) and I've stamped that with Choc Chip and Regal Rose. The panel behind is Pink Pirouette and some PP DP from Candy Lane. Just to finish it off I added some Red Riding Hood Taffeta Ribbon.
This card REALLY was a DELIGHT to make, and it was even more fun showing Jorja the finished thing this morning... I must admit to getting just the reaction I was hoping for... more squeals, more WOW Mummy!!!!, and then a little " Mummy.. Jorja want to stamp!!!... Absolutely made my morning!!!

Righty... enough of my rambling... be sure to pop on over and visit the other Sweet Sunday Stampers for some more AMAZING inspiration and fabulous eye candy:-
