Make friends with Porridge!

Evening all. Thank goodness it's the weekend. I've had one pig of a week at work (no pun intended)! I thought I'd share a card with you that I made last weekend with my new Sugar Nellie soft center stamps! You can find them here at Funky kits!

The image is called porridge, isn't he lovely! I coloured him with my whispers pens. They are difficult to use when you want to try and attempt some shading. I'm hoping to get some copics for christmas as these seem to give a better result! Matted onto coredinations CS. Background papers are from my new Basic Grey Sugared pad. Flower brad is from papermania and the made with love charm (which you can see better if you click on the image) was sent to me in my DT pack of stamps so unsure where they're from sorry! Sentiment was created using doodlebug rub on's and a studio G clear stamp (coloued wiht whispers pens and glitter added).

Well I'm hoping to have a semi-relaxing weekend and hope to get some time for crafting! Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog and leave comments I really appreciate them! I will be visiting your blogs over the next few days to see what fab creations you've come up with!

Hugs, Vicky x

Hi Vicky, thanks for your lovely comment, the link you need is even though it's made with an A4 sheet it's still a decent size.

Love this card, such a great image and love the sentiment. Have a nice weekend :)
