Friday Sketchers meets sugar nellie!

This is the card I have made for this weeks friday sketchers challenge, almost forgot to post it, but luckily I'm just in the nick of time!! I will apologise again in advance for the poor lighting in the pic, what's happened to all the lovely sunshine!

I love this cute sugar nellie image. My mum has this stamp and gave me a few of these images! I coloured her with distress inks and whispers pens, with a few white sakura pen accents here and there! I cut her out and mounted her with 3d foam. The paper is BG, and CS is a mix of coredinations and kraft CS. The beautiful image is from the Sincere Salutations set from SU, which you can order from the wonderful Jules. The flowers are a mixture of prima and hand punched, buttton and brads from my stash. The spotty ribbon is one of my recent purchases from hobbycraft. I found it in the sale box, 3m for 49p. I love it so much I have to confess I bought 12 rolls!! But there is a method behind my madness. I want to use this ribbon when I finally get around to making my wedding invites so wanted to get plenty!

Well I've got to dash, it's my Weight Watchers meeting tonight. I am at goal now after recently losing 3 stone, but I want to keep going to keep myself motivated and to stop myself from putting it back on, perish the thought!

Hope you're all well, thanks for stopping by! TTFN!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
