A 'Very Nellie Christmas' for the Sugar Bowl.

There is a wonderful sketch over at The Sugar Bowl this week by the uber talented Marlene and I am just in the nick of time with this one as it ends today! I did make this card last week before I went away but have just forgot to post it!



I really enjoyed using this sketch as it's not too complicated or fussy and it gave me the perfect opportunity to get out one of my older Sugar Nellie stamps, the gorgeous Nellie with Crocheted hat and scarf, still available form Funky Kits. I almost forgot the include option of 'doodling' but I managed to doodle a frame around the image, saving my bacon. I should learn to pay more attention to the finer details! Lol! Another christmas card to add to my box!

Materials:

Image: Crocheted Hat and Scarf Nellie From Sugar Nellie, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: MME Wild Asparagus, BG Wassail

CS: Coredinations

Sentiment: SU Best Yet set

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, SU scalloped border punch, x cut snowflake punch

Misc: Half pearls & pearl brads from stash, flower I bough from Julie's etsy shop {thanks Julie}

Well I hope you are all having a lovely week. I'm finding it a bit of a challenge getting back into work mode after 9 days off and I'm soooo tired! I had an early night last night, {9pm} so hopefully I will feel a bit fresher today!

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment so I know you have been!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
