Chef Hamish for the Blog Hop!

Afternoon all!

Welcome to the Sugar Nellie blog hop! Hopefully you have joined me from Tiets Blog if not please head back to the start here at the Sugar Nellie blog!

There is lots of sweet candy to be won so make sure you stop at each of the DT's blogs on the sugar nellie blog hop. Each DT member will be giving away the stamp we used on our card, all you have to do is leave a comment. You will have until midnight GMT on Sunday to get your comments in to stand a chance of winning some sweet prizes. I will pick a winner using random. org and then the winners will be announced on the Sugar Nellie blog on Monday!

So here is my card, using the gorgeous Chef Hamish! Sugar Nellie was the first brand of stamp that I bought when I got into stamping so I have a real soft spot for the older SN stamps, especially the Maggie and Hamish stamps. So I chose to use this Hamish stamp to make a card for my brothers birthday!


Materials

Image: 'Chef Hamish' from Sugar Nellie. Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor.

CS: SU

Paper: Designer Series papers from SU

Sentiment: Studio G

Tools: Nesties, SU scalloped oval punch, SU oval punch

Misc:buttons from stash

A CAS LO for this card, I wanted to let the image speak for itself and I like Male cards not to be too fussy! I think this Hamish stamp is just perfect for those male birthday cards!

Well I am the final stop on this blog hop so please head on back here to the Sugar Nellie blog! I sincerley hope you've had a wonderful trip down memory lane looking at all the wonderful DT's cards!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and dont forget to head back to the Sugar Nellie blog on monday for the announcement of the winners of the candy!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
