Sugar Nellie - Winter Wonders blog hop!

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

It's time for a Sugar Nellie blog hop!  We're showing off 4 gorgeous new Christmas digi stamps that are available to buy today, and we have some of the Sugar Bowl Sweeties hopping along with us to show you some of last year's lovely Christmas stamps too.

I'm the first stop on the hop, but you might want to pop over to the Sugar Nellie blog first (if you haven't already) just so you don't miss anything... Don't forget to leave comments on your way - as always there's candy to be won!

Here's my creation, using the adorable new image Penguin Party... love this one, the little mouse is so cute!




Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Sugar Nellie Penguin Party - Funky Kits
Colouring - copics
Papers - NEW MME Mistletoe Magic - MCH
NEW Impression Obsession Snowflakes dies - MCH
(3 separate snowflake dies that I've layered together)
Button - Bo Bunny C'est La Vie Buttons - MCH
MeiFlower Gems - MCH
Viva Pearl Pen in Ice White - MCH
Glamour Dust in Crystal

Your next stop is the lovely Lis... Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!

We're off out school uniform shopping today, possibly the most hated shopping trip of the year!  We've put it off until nearly the last minute as usual... The boys go back to school on Wednesday and I'm wishing we had another couple of weeks, the 6 weeks seem to have flown for a change.  It'll be nice to get back into a routine though, I suppose.  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Penguins are so cute, and this is no exception. Love your colouring and the snowflake is stunning! I dread uniform shopping too - the BW is 13 but wearing age 16+ as he's so tall. Now factor in the teenage "I'm not wearing that" mantra and you've got a shopping nightmare! Good luck! xx
