Sugar Nellie DT christmas card!

Evening all!

I hope you're all having a good start to the week! Unlike me! I bought something off of e-bay last week and it has arrived to day and it is counterfeit! Its just so annoying when you trust someone and they take advantage of your good nature. I have sent them a message and am hoping for a refund but I won't hold me breath!

Anyhow onto today card! I have use another of my DT christmas stamps from Sugar Nellie. I just love this cute image of these birds with their hot chocolate! Such a delight to work with. But if you are wanting to use this cute image for your christmas cards you'd better hurry on over to Funky Kits to get one as there are only 32 days left until christmas day!! I think this has to be one of my favourites from the new christmas releases!

I am entering this card for three, yes three of this weeks challenges. Simon Says Stamp want to see animals on your card, One stop craft want you to use snowflakes and over at creative inspirations they want to see sparkle!


Image: Winter Birds from Diane Duda by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DCWV Christmas Stack 2008

CS: Kraft

Sentiment: Craft work cards

Tools: distress inks, sponges, blending brushes, cuttlebug snowflake die, sewing machine

Misc: twinklets, pearl brad from stash

I was very brave and got my sewing machine out again for this card, not used it for almost a year! When I had finished the panel I didn't like the result so started tearing the paper off and this was the result, which I liked much better! A happy accident! Lol!

I also thought I would share a couple of the cards we made at Jules' SU workshop on saturday. These are my favourites of the 8 we made. I will show you the others another night so my post isn't too long!

{The sentiment on this card is from craftwork cards and not SU!}

All of the products used on these cards are from SU and can be purchased throught the lovely Jules!

Well that's all for me this evening. I am going to settle down to watch eastenders with a nice cuppa before a spot of blog hopping later!

Thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say hi and I love reading all your lovely comments!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Vicky, your little birdies are perfect!!! I could see these being used for a gift set with cocoa or something. You made such a wonderful card!
I like the SU ones also. I particularly like the church one. Very clean but sensational!
Hugs, Dena
