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
My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland papers - MCH
My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland buttons (spotty button & the 2 button banners) - MCH
Crafty Impressions Someone Special sentiment stamps - Funky Kits
Snowflake twill ribbon - Fantastic Ribbons
Nestabilities Labels 22 - Pink Gem Designs
Memory Box Corner Bow die - MCH
Glamour Dust in 'crystal'

Your next stop is the super talented Mina with her gorgeous card to show you... don't forget to leave comments along the way - always lots of hidden candy on a Sugar Nellie hop!

I'll be back later with my Sweet Stampin' DT card, hope you have a lovely day :o)
