Happy 1st Birthday - A Spoon Full of Sugar, with Marlene's Fab sketch at the Sugar Bowl

Woooo Hooooo!!! Today is A Spoon Full of Sugar's Birthday.. Yes, our challenge is 1 year old!!!

We want you all to join in the fun this week so our challenge is a nice easy one. We would like you to create a card for a Celebration..... any celebration will do... Birthday, Anniversary, Baby Announcement.... anything goes!

We have lots of fabulous prizes this week! Our very generous sponsors this week are: Whiff of Joy, Whimsy Stamps, Roses on Paper, Nutcrafters and Silly Monkey Crafts. Yes that's right 5 lucky people can win a prize this week! Pop on over to A Spoon Full of Sugar to read all about these prizes and also to see the wonderful cards by the design team and also the fabulous cards from the our special Guest Designers Deb and Marlou.

I have chosen to make a Birthday card (as I needed one!) and have used one of the Gorjuss Girls from set one - I really think this is my favourite out of all of them. The papers are from Kaisercraft and I have been saving these as they were almost too pretty to cut up. Flower, ribbon and buttons from my stash.
I have not finished the inside of this card yet, but hopefully will get it done tonight and will update this post when I complete it.

I have used the fabulous sketch my Marlene over at The Sugar Bowl, so I am entering this card in the challenge over there.

I do hope you all manage to join us in this bumper celebration week at A Spoon Full of Sugar and I look forward to seeing your beautiful cards.
