A little Sugar Nellie cutie...

Hi Girls...

Well here's my first card done with my Sugar Nellie candy win from the lovely Elaine.... such lush stamps, I couldn't decide which to use first! LOL!  But, Delia won out (closely followed by Pippi Longsocks who is now sulking on my desk....)


Of course, I coloured her with my trusty promarkers and copics... used a nestie to cut the shape (blossom 4), then used a DP from My Minds Eye - Lime Twist, which is mounted onto kraft cardstock for the base.  I used an MS edge punch but can't remember the name of it... then I added a bow made from seam binding..... but again, struggled to use a sentiment.... I'm never happy with them on the front, I always feel that I un-balance the card with a sentiment....  so I left it without! 

Of course, then out came the glitter and stickles.....  well a fairy can't be a proper fairy unless she sparkles.... right girls?

It's a bit of a chilly day here today, strong north wind blowing...  so I guess they're right when they say snow before the week's out....   don't you just hate it when winter comes?  Well OK, the snuggling up in the evening is good, but I hate it when we lose the light so early on in the evening... I always was a wimp who was scared of the dark...

Happy crafting girls.... and hope you have the heating cogged up!
Hugs
