Seasons Greetings from Mary Hall!

Evening all. My delightful boyfriend has managed to get a cable that attaches the laptop to the
television especially for me so I can upload my creations. So as I am typing, my blogpage is up on my 42" television screen for me to see! I can tell you it feels weird. Hopefully the situation may not be as damaging as first though. If we can buy a new screen (hopefuly for around £80) my BIL is really good with computers and he says he can fix it for us! So keep your fingers crossed that this will work otherise I may be on a craft stash ban for a while whilst I pay off a new laptop! Lol!

Onto today's card made using another of the fab images that arrived in my DT pack from Sugar Nellie. I was so excited when I recieved this months kit with all the lovely christmas designs I had to just dive straight in and use this little cutie by the designer Mary Hall. Aren't they just adorable together! This image was a delight to colour in and if you haven't already checked out the sweet new releases, make sure you head on over to funky kits quicksmart, you'll be sorry if they sell out! Lol!


Image: Christmas present from Mary Hall by Sugar Nellie. Available here from funky kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DWV Christmas Stack 2007


Sentiment: from a See D's Christmas set

Tools: distress inks, sponges,

Misc: card candy from craftwork cards, glitter for the fur trim

I love these cute new releases from Sugar Nellie and I am so lucky to get these stamps through my door each month to play with. I have to pinch myself when they arrive! It truly is a dream for me to be on the Sugar Nellie design team. Maggie with flowers was my first ever stamp that I bought! I love the designs as much now as I did then, it not more so as there are so many fab new designers to choose from. So I would just like to say a huge thank you to Karen for picking me to be on her design team alongside such other amazingly talented people!

Thanks to those of you who have taken the time to stop by and for any comments you may leave. I really do love to hear from you!

Hugs, Vicky ~X~
