Sending You Hugs & Kisses!

Morning all. The sun is shining and it looks like it will be a beautiful day here in West Yorkshire. Unfortunately I have to work this weekend though, so not much crafting going on for me!

Today's card is for this weeks Sugar Bowl challenge where there is a wonderful sketch by Judy to follow. Make sure you head over and take a look as there is a wonderful prize of a new release set of autumn Sugar Nellie stamps which are not even yet for sale at funky kits!

I just love these cute images by Leanne Ellis and I haven't used this 'Luvvy' image for a while so though I'd ink her up again! The please incude element over at The Sugar Bowl Challenge is to use homemade flowers. I though these MME papers were perfect and I cut out the flowers before inking the edges and adding little buttons to the centers!


Image: Luvvy by Leanne Ellis, available at Funky Kits, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: MME Bloom and Grow

CS: Coredinations

Sentiment: Created using everydays greetings & everyday add on's clear stamps from Elzybells

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties {out of bounds technique}, silicone glue

Misc: cappucino half pearl, flowers cut from MME paper, buttons form stash

I really enjoyed making this card. I seem to be using lots of summery colours lately, probably hoping it will affect the weather! Lol! Well I hope you like today's card. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
