Full of Grace...


Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies....

Here I am today with my VERY LAST Sugar Nellie DT inspiration post!!  Sniff!

I decided to step down from the lovely team, as I think it's time for me to move on, and I have other DT's that need my full attention at the moment! LOL!  However, Sugar Nellie was probably one of the first stamp companies I bought from.....  all that luscious rubber so many years ago... so it's very difficult for me to go...  I feel 'attached' in some sentimental way!!

Anyway.... enough sniffling.....  I decided that for my last Sugar Nellie card I wanted to do one of the fabulous All Dressed Up images available at the store - this is 'Full of Grace' - and she DOES look full of grace..  a perfect ballerina!

Materials Used:
Paper - Nitwits
Martha Stewart edge punch
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/21/11, R20
Hair - E50/43/57
Blues - B0000/000/12/93
Bling and Glitter from stash

All that is left is for me to say a big thank you to Karen, Fiona and the lovely Design Team... I have made lots of good friends while I've been part of this fab team...  so I'm sad to go....  sniff...  but I will certainly still be following and keeping in touch!

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting...

  16. OH Sweetie .. I'm so sorry to read that you will be stepping down from the DT. I know they will truly miss you as part of their family .. and yes .. being a part of a DT really does "grow" on you like a real family huh? It's so emotional, and very hard to put into words .. but I know exactly what you mean. :(

    Your card .. sigh .. it's just so beyond GORGEOUS Christine! I so love your colouring .. it's hypnotizing!

    I hope you and your family are enjoying the summer so far!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend!

    Big Hugs,
