Sugar Nellie Sneak Week - day 4 & release day!

Hello :o)  It's the last day of the Sugar Nellie Sneak Week and that means it's release day!  The 'Under the Sea' collection is available from Funky Kits from 9am this morning... so that's about now then... Don't rush off just yet though - we've still got the last stamp to show you!

Sooo... If you came here from Anita's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, pop over to the Sugar Nellie blog so you don't miss anyone's fab creations - and the chance to win some candy on the way of course!




This little lovely is Water Lily - gorgeous, isn't she?  I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added some Viva pearl dots around her.  The papers are First Edition 'Isabelle', all lovely and sparkly, with cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The border is a MFT dienamics die, the sentiment pennant stamps and matching dies are Whimsy, with Bazzill thread and pearl brads.

I'm having a bit of a 'what was I thinking?' moment with the sparkly embellishment - I've gone right off it lol!  It's a wooden shape by Kars, coloured with a promarker, sprayed with 'spray & sparkle, with a big gem in the middle... oh well, never mind - it's well and truly stuck now lol.  Excuse the wonky image of me reflected in the gem too!

Your next stop is the fabulous Vicky with her beautiful card for today.  Hope you've enjoyed our sneak peeks this week, and good luck if you've been joining in with the daily hops - hope you win some sweet candy :o)

I'll probably be rushing around all day again today - it's what all my days seem to be like at the moment, having the boys at home for the summer!  We're off out to meet a friend and her kids, so hopefully my two will be worn out by this afternoon and will let me get some crafting done... you never know eh?!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
