The Sugar Bowl is BACK!!

Hi lovely blogging buddies....

I'm here today with some exciting news...  The Sugar Bowl is now back in action with a new challenge..  and we have some wonderful new Sweeties to welcome..  Pop over to see our challenge for this month - to see some FABULOUS inspiration from the lovely Sweeties - and join in the fun again...  we can't wait to see you!  And it's an ANYTHING GOES challenge too.. provided of course you use a Sugar Nellie image..  Click on the image below to go straight there... (not before you've read the rest of my post of course...)

Now for this special event, and also for my Sugar Nellie Inspiration post today, I took the chance to use one of my favourite Sugar Nellie fairy images (you can't beat them can you?)...  to make my card.  Meet 'Elf Made Magic' - available in digi form from Funky Kits - click on the link below.  You'll find some other fabulous images to choose from too - and be spoiled for choice!

I couldn't help but take one or two (ahem!) photos of this little elf...  can you tell I was pleased with my colouring??  hehe!  

Copics Used: Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, Clothes: BG70, BG10, BG72,  Fur: C1 Holly: G82, G99, 
Gifts: R24, Promarker Ruby, Shadow and Shading: N0, N2, N4, 

Materials: Paper - Lawn Fawn - Love Joy Peace, Dienamics Circle Stax, LOTV Handwritten Christmas Sentiment

And yes.... I figured out how to do a collage - so had to include that too!! hehe!

So even though I'm not quite back in my pink zone yet today, I'm certainly in my pastel place and loved it!  Maybe I'm not meant for stronger colours.... being the 'ever-so-delicate' person that I am!!  LOL!  Ok, don't choke when you read this!! hehe 

Bye for now - Big Hugs to all and see you in our challenge!
