Sugar Nellie Sneak Week - Day One

Ooh... I've been keeping this quiet for a while and now I can have a good squeeeeeeeeeeal  lol!  Yes, somehow little old me managed to make it onto the fabulous Sugar Nellie Design Team... no, I don't know quite how I managed to be chosen, but I'm absolutely thrilled :o)


This week is 'sneak week' at Sugar Nellie


to show you the gorgeous new stamps featuring some very pretty mermaids!


So... if you arrived here from Anita's blog you're on the right track - if not, pop over to Sugar Nellie so you don't miss anyone's gorgeous creations :o)


And here's my very first DT card for Sugar Nellie... eek, so nervous!




This is 'Under The Sea' - isn't she a beauty?  She'll be available, along with her lovely friends, from Funky Kits on Friday 3rd August... not long to wait!

I coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, adding my little Viva pearl dots around her.  The papers are from the Life Documented set from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card.  I've used the lovely Memory Box 'party lanterns' die from My Crafty Heart, and the pretty little resin flower was a freebie that Teresa kindly popped in with my order - think I need to buy some of these!  The scalloped border was cut with a MFT die, the tab is a Stampin' Up punch, sentiment is LOTV and the pearls are from my stash.

Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Vicky and don't forget to leave comments for everyone, because there will be hidden candy along the way!

Well, I hope I did everything right... hops make me nervous as I always think I'm going to be the one who makes it all go wrong lol... fingers crossed!  Have a lovely day everyone :o)
