New Sugar Pea Challenge Team - Have A Rice Day!

Oh Happy Day! I've got some good news to announce! And it's not just good for me.. it's good for you too!! Do you love Sugar Pea Designs? Well sit down.. you need to read this. Today we are announcing a new Sugar Pea Designs Challenge Blog! I am so excited to be joining their design team! Once a week - Every Wednesday, starting December 9 we will have a new sketch challenge. It's going to work a little different than your typical challenge... here's how..

Even though there will be a new sketch every week the challenge is monthly! So you can play any one of the sketches or all of the sketches when you play along. One winner will be selected MONTHLY from the entries. You DONT have to use Sugar Pea Designs products to win, however, if the randomly selected entry features SugarPea Designs stamp then the prize will be increased to $75!!!   Told you this would be great for you too!!
This post today is just to introduce you to the new team and let you know what's coming next week!  It was so hard to figure out what design would define me - or introduce you to me if you are new here.
I decided on this cute little penguin from ...  get this...  the name of the set?   "Rice Rice Baby!"  Of course a penguin is going to like sushi right?  I chose this little guy mostly because he makes me smile.    I like to color and the clean design makes this so easy for anyone.  
 I also love layers and lots of little embellishments on my designs.  I wanted to add a little "Asian" flair, so I dug up some of my treasured Basic Grey Konnichiwa paper.  I know red is lucky in Asian culture and have lots of pops of it on my design.  
I wrapped some Twinery Solid Natural Twine around the card the same way you would thread a loop through a tag - feeding the double ends through the loop and pulling the ends to secure them.  Adding some glass e beads on the ends of the twine makes this fun and adds color. 
 Are  you ready to meet the rest of the team?

You can find the new challenge and get updates here at SugarPea Designs Challenge -  or on Facebook and Instagram.

I think this is going to be a fun adventure!  Don't you?
