A Sugar Nellie Beauty

Sketch and Stash Challenge

I don't know if you have visited Funky Kits lately but they are now selling the most fantastic downloads by Sugar Nellie there are 6 in all and they are awesome. Well of course I had to have them and this is the first card I have made using them so it qualifies for the Sketch and Stash Challenge. Tell me if can resist this little Fairy Webb Knitter.

I have used Copics and Polychromos pencils to colour my little darling, and used lots of Glamour Dust on her web. The papers are Bo Bunny Abbey Road which I purchased from The Hobby House, this is a completely different colour scheme for me I am going to try to venture away from my usual Pinks and Greens in 2010.

The Flowers are a mixture from Tabby Craft Designs and Wild Orchid Crafts they have been spritzed with the last of my Pearl Glimmer Mist!!!!! (must get on and order more) and have had stickles added to the edges.

I am so lucky in the care and attention I get from my dearest sons and daughter in laws, My eldest Son Matthew and DIL Emma arrived here with three bags of shopping (and some Ciggies!!) for Mum and I this afternoon quite out of the blue, it is not as if they live around the corner this meant a 35 mile drive, (they have a 4 wheel drive, I think that makes a difference in the snow and Ice not being a driver I wouldn't know). They knew I was not able to get to the village and Tesco are have cancelled all deliveries until next Tuesday, they only stayed for a cup of tea as they wanted to get back before it started to snow again. I am so proud of them!!! Thank you Matthew and Emma xxxxx

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Those digis are fantastic arent they I have got them but havent printed them yet and seeing your creation I am getting itching fingers. How fabulous are your boys and DIL, what a lovely thoughtful thing to do. Luckily in London were not that bad and can just get about still, but they say we will get it later today and tomorrow so Im gonna have to go and stock up myself before playing.

Take care
