Using my favourite Sugar Nellie Stamp

Just a quick post from me tonight, then I had better head down stairs and spend some time with hubby, been in the craft room all day, got quite a lot done, so happy about that...


I am on the Official Sugar Nellie Facebook Group, and this week, Sugary Sunday Week 70 , they asked us to use our favourite image...well mines is Daisy, who is actually retired now, and I paid a massive £21 for her on Ebay, that is how much I love her, LOL...hope my hubby does not read this....

I actually made this card twice, the 1st is nothing like this, but it was upside down, :(, so I pulled off the image and started again, and I have to say that it was a happy mistake, cos I like this one a lot better.   What do you think...I have been practicing with hair colours and shading, and been watching hours of You Tube videos, and am quite please how she is colour...would love feedback on that...

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

The Sugar Bowl - CH106 - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations -  CH73 - Embossing of any kind, must use and image
Polkadoodles  - In the Garden
The ABC Challenges - S for Stitches - Real or Faux

Have a lovely evening whatever you may be doing, meet me back here for a new challenge at Glitter N Sparkle tomorrow....thank you, hugs to all xxxx
