Sugar Nellie - Sparkle & Shine release day!

Good morning :o)  Today we're having a little Sugar Nellie hop to show you the six gorgeous new Christmas digi stamps that will be available at Funky Kits from 9am this morning!


Hopefully you arrived here from Pat's fabulous blog, but if not please pop over to Sugar Nellie so you don't miss anyone's lovely creations - and the chance to win some fab Sugar Nellie candy of course!




This gorgeous image is called Forest Friends - such a pretty little scene, isn't it?  You wouldn't believe the disasters I've had trying to get this little cutie coloured in though!  First off, the printer broke while I was trying to print her out... so we bought a new printer.  And then the first one I coloured was almost done when a red flexmarker decided to blot a huge puddle of ink all over her hat.  Even this one has a smudge of black ink that I had to cover up!  It's a relief just to have a finished card to show you lol!

Items Used
Sugar Nellie 'Forest Friends' digi stamp - Funky Kits
Coloured with promarkers & flexmarkers
