Challenge – Something Sweet!

Hey folks and welcome to a new challenge.  Its been a busy few weeks for us APFP girls so for this challenge we thought we deserved a little treat!  We all have a bit of a sweet tooth so with that in mind we want to see what “sugary, sweet, and tasty” creations you can come up with.  Don’t just think of cupcakes and ice-cream – it can mean fruits, pies, drinks, etc.  It might even be a colour or sentiment!  Let your imagination run free!

I was in the mood for a bit of water-colouring so pulled out my Inktense pencils and had a play with the Cupcake Collection stamp set.  A good dollop of Stickles, some pattern papers and a few sequins finish it off nicely!!



Over to Kate: ‘Nothing says summer birthday like an an ice-cream treat! I’m not entirely sure which flavours these scoops of ice cream but they I still think they look yummy!”


Stamps: Sweet as Can Be/Birthday Bash Sentiments Card: Kraft/White/Raspberry Fizz/Summer Sunrise/Hawai'in Shores Other: Ric-rac die/Sweet as Can Be die

Do you remember fab ice lollies? I loved them as a kid and I’m still partial to one now (I have to eat them the same way: peel the chocolate layer off first, then the cream layer and finally the ice layer.) 🙂

We can’t wait to see all the goodies you come up with for this challenge. Have a look here for all the challenge deets. The challenge closes at 9am on Monday August 26th and one randomly selected peep will win a $5 PTI gift certificate!  Just link up your offering with the tool thingy below!

Over to Caryn …

Hello all and Happy New Year! Hope everyone’s creative juices are flowing for our new challenge! I have to say I am in a bit of a lull with my mojo at the minute and really struggled getting this card together! Maybe it’s that post-Christmas lull?!  My inspiration came from my red polka dot table-cloth (I guess it has to come from somewhere!!).
