Sweet Mackenzie!

Afternoon all! I've just got in from work after a busy shift and I'm just sitting down for a rest with a nice cuppa.

I have another of the sweet girlies from the Sugar and Spice collection from Sugar Nellie to show you today. I am just loving these cutie pie's!

When I saw this image of Mackenzie she reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, so the colour choice of red and blue was an obvious choice for this card!


Image: 'Mackenzie' from the Sugar & Spice collection by Sugar Nellie Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with whispers pens, koh-i-noors and sansodor.

Paper: DCWV Christmas stack


Sentiment: See D's celebration messages set

Tools: SU scallop border punch, cropodile, emery board for distressing

Misc: Gingham ribbon from stash.

I really enjoyed making this card. My style is more of the CAS look. I love to be able to see the white base CS on my cards. I don't know what it is, I just can't seem to make the multiple DP layers look work for me. Although I do keep trying it! Lol!

I hope you're all having a good weekend. I'm working again tomorrow, but somehow need to find time to make two birthday cards before monday. A late night tonight I think!

Thanks for stoping by.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Personally I think your style is great - Your cards always look fresh and clean - like you I much prefer the simple style which I am sure takes as much skill as the multi-layers - after all where can you hide your mistakes!!
