Well here I am again today with my second post... but this time with my very first Sugar Nellie Design Team card... Yes.... I was finally chosen to be a Sugar Bowl Sweetie and obviously am thrilled to bits - as it's a team that I've wanted to be on for such a long time!
Unfortunately though, I did have to do this card in a bit of a rush having just got back from my hols before the deadline... so hope you'll put up with one that's not my best! This is one of the first Sugar Nellie images I ever bought - she's called Strike a Pose (think it may be out of stock just now)... so thought it was apt to use. And does anyone else remember those white PVC boots from the late 1960's/early 1970's? The were very a la Mary Quant... so I used a bit of glossy accents on them to make them PVC ish!! They used to have elasticated tops.... and my legs were so thin then that they used to wobble around even in the elastic! Hmmm wonder what happened to those days...
I used some Pion paper (not sure of the name).. some lace from The Hobby House... some seam binding from my local haberdashery shop (that bow just WOULDN'T sit right)... and then lots of Frantage around the image... (gotta love that stuff!)
Why don't you pop over to the Sugar Nellie Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous cards my lovely teamies have come up with... they are truly inspirational!!
This week has been absolutely manic for me so I've not been able to get around to commenting properly.. but please bear with me... I'll be back in full swing soon. Apologies anyway. It could also have something to do with the 5 lbs I gained when I ate far too much in Kefalonia... my fingers are now too fat to type quickly!! LOL!! I'll share some pics soon.... we had a wonderful time after a bit of an issue getting away in the first place!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting
