Last day to enter the Sugar Bowl challenge!

Whew!  Now that I have started discovering challenges I just can't stop myself from entering them!  Today is the last day of the Sugar Bowl Challenge number 50.  This one is special one as it is the second birthday of the Sugar Bowl so there will be two winners!

Here is the sketch.

Once again, I struggled to make a nice oval without my Spellbinders or my Fiskars cutter, so I went with rounded rectangle.  I also don't have my embossing gear here, so I had to skip the optional extra embossing option.

Here is my card...

I love this image from the Sugar Nellie Home Grown collection.  His name is Rory... isn't he cute?!  He is coloured with copics, the paper is from October Afternoon and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Have a lovely evening!  We are off to Bookie Bird's house for dinner.  It is the last night before her folks in law leave to go back home to Australia.  I made a sinful chocolate cake for dessert... we figured that since we are both on diets we had better make our one dessert this month a good one!

Hope they're not going home to the flooded areas?

Actually they are sort of... They live in Brisbane on Bribie Island. I believe it is okay, but it still will not be a pleasant home coming.

Bribie Island is quite a way out of Brisbane really. The airport is 'fine'. Have friends who live around the corner from them (I'd forgotten) and Sheila assures me they don't have a problem.

So, tell BB and family not to worry.

Water peaked below expected levels and the clean up has begun in earnest already. What a mess!

This country needs MORE DAMS! Go figure!
