Sweets in a Candy Shop. Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #75

'Sweets in a Candy Shop'
Good morning and today is Wednesday morning the sun is shinning the dishwasher is on the boys have left for school and there's nearly another load of washing finished in the machine ready to be hung out. Oh well it will have to wait a few more minutes.
The weather here in New Zealand is just beautiful at present, very warm and sunny, I'm so looking forward to summer.
I went to our beach house on Saturday afternoon after Cricket and came home Sunday evening, but it's never ever long enough, the boys had to go to school on Monday morning.
We all know today is Wednesday and that means it's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and this week is no different from the rest as we have another wonderful sketch that Arlana has designed for us to play with and of course it's great yet again. I enjoyed working with this one Arlana and will be using it again.

These Lolly pops are sitting in something, this image reminds me as a child and buying what we call Candy Floss which is pink spun sugar and I think it's call Cotton Candy in America.

Kathie this card is scrumptious! I could eat it up! Love, love, love the crystal effect on those candies-makes them look real! And these colors are so fun and festive. Perfect embellishments too!
All the best,

We had a fun image this week didn't we Kathie! I am loving all that pink you used, it looks so tasty! And the glossy accents are perfect! I call it Cotton Candy but I know I have heard people refer to it as Candy Floss too :)
