Sweet Elise!

Evening all! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend! I know I have. I went over to see my family yesterday and it was lovely to catch up. The next time I will see them will probably be christmas day! I have also been lucky enought to win a couple of stamps over the last few days from Bev and Carole {thanks ladies}, so I can't wait for them to arrive so I can have a play!

My Sugar Nellie DT stamps arrived on friday and I couldn't wait to ink them up. They have a couple of new ranges out this month. The sugar & Spice collection and four new baby stamps so head on over to funky kits and have a look, they truly are adorable!

Today's card was made with my favourite from the Sugar & Spice collection so I just had to use her first. The sketch is from friday sketchers a few weeks ago! I loved it and wanted to give it a go but never got around to it in time! Better late than never hey!



Materials


Image: Elise from the Sugar & Spice collection by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket {from a kit from QVC}

Sentiment: SU circle of friendship

Tools: nesties, SU scallop border punch, Cropodile, distress inks, sponges, blending brushes,

Misc:
Adhesive blue pearls from stash

Isn't she just the sweetest. I paper pieced her skirt with some of the cosmo cricket paper and cooured the hearts with my koh-i-noors! I love the effect of paper peicing.

I just want to thank you all for stopping by my blog and leaving me such lovely comments and support. To celebrate over 25,000 hits and by way of saying thank you to my loyal blogging buddies I will be offering some christmas candy over the next week, so make sure you call back to check it out!

Well I must get of and plan what we're going to have for tea.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
