Wow, just started looking around at cards again today and I can’t believe the blog candy being offered out there. Ruby is offering two candies to celebrate joining the Magnolia Sweden DT…how cool is that!
To get in on this totally awesome offer you only have until May 1, 2012. So you better get cracking and hop on over there to check it out. As I already said she is offering 2 prizes and I have only shown you one of them.
Good luck to all.

Awesome Magnolia Blog Candy Being Offered!

From now until Friday May 25, 2012 you have the opportunity to win one of these lovely Maggie’s from Cathy’s Creative Place just by dropping in and leaving a comment. Please check them out…I’m sure you all love the Maggie’s just as much as I do.

Now I just have to get healthy and stay that way so that I can make a few cards again. I sooo miss making cards. I have decided if I can’t make them for a couple more months I am at least going to start stockpiling ideas and supplies for when I’m up to it again.

Hugz to all,

Another Sugar Nellie Challenge!

I had this card done and mailed out over a week ago because it was for a Halloween Birthday. I haven’t supplied the deets for this card yet because unfortunately I have been under the weather for weeks now and just can’t seem to kick it. Anyhoo, I do want to try to participate in a few challenges and I just love the Sugar Bowl Challenge. All of the deets for this card are written down for me to add later, but I did use Stampin Up Cardstock, K & Co DP and Copics for coloring.I hope to participate in more challenges soon since I have a nice collection of Hanglars going on along with my Maggies but I just don’t feel like I have the ability to compete out there. I feel like a wee one with all of that talent floating around~smile~
I hope you enjoy my card…the 10 year old boy who got it loved it:-)

p.s. be sure to check out the Sugar Nellie blog where they have all kinds of new releases going on!!! I just can’t wait to get my itchy fingers on the new Simply Adorable stamps!

My Sugar Nellie’s Came Today!

I have been waiting for my order to complete my card for Challenge #45  at the Sugar Bowl and when it finally came today I fell in love with this stamp!!

I had ordered the whole set of Sassy Girls figuring that I would definitely use one of those….waiting on pins and needles when they come on the very last day of the challenge, right, but I really had to use one of the stamps from this set since the theme was Autumn.


I guess I’ll use one of my girls next go round. Here is my card, hope you like it.  I will be back later with all of the deets on it.  For now I have to go fix dinner.

A New Sugar Nellie Card

Hello all….Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a while.  I have just gotten over pneumonia, bronchitis (still coughing though) and a serious, nasty sinus infection.  Let me tell you…it definitely kicked my butt.

Anyhoo, I just finished a card for my Grandaughters birthday and thought I would share it with you.  I just love all of the Sugar Nellie stamps but these Manga girls are adorable.My camera skills need a little work…or a lot I guess LOL.  This picture really doesn’t capture the personality of the card.

Mia, our granddaughter, is a princess…just ask her!  So the only color that will work for this princess is PINK.

Unfortunately there are things on the card that you probably can’t really see.  I made it a point to make the image sit exactly on the edge of the bottom layer of paper.  Also I used glossy accents to puff up her hair bow and then I ended up pretty much hiding it by framing the Manga image.  I have texturized her boots with copic blending solution on a piece of old terry cloth. Last I framed her to set her off and make her kind of pop out at you…which worked but I had to soften that just a bit with some whitewashing on the borders  of the frame.

I then added gems with my new I-Rock tool, to the top of the frame to make it kind of look like a Crown.  Last but not least I added this awesome flower that I received from Jacque. It’s from Wild Orchid flowers and I just added a little yellow stickles to give it some zip.

Materials used: Stampin Up Pink Pirouette cardstock, the DP is DCWV Sweet Stash. I used Nestabillities Labels 10 and Imaginisce assorted bling and the tool. Wild Orchid Paper Flower.

Copics used: E000 E00 E21 R20
RV000 RV11 RV14 RV34 RV09
Y21 Y23 YR21 YR23
E35 E29 E25

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my SugarNellie card made with the sweet little Manga Girl image. I gladly accept any and all comments where I need to improve.  Please take the time to let me now what you think of my card and what I could do to improve it.

I’m going to enter this card in a new challenge group called Southern Girls Challenge where the challenge right now is Anything Goes!  In case you’ve never been here before that is my goal…to enter challenges since I’m very new to them.

A New Artist is in Town!

There is a new artist recently discovered by Sugar Nellie and her name is Krista.
She was running a contest  asking for ideas for drawing new characters and the winner would receive a completed drawing. Of course I entered my idea like many  others….but…I won!!!!!

It would be so exciting if the house of sugar picked this up as one of their stamps since they are the only reason I had even heard of Krista and her amazing work. They are going to have other stamps designed by Krista available at Funky Kits very soon so be sure to check them all out.

You can check it all out at Kristas’s blog and see some of her other awesome artwork too.

Hello to All..Fellow Stamper Needs Our Help!

I know I have been a very bad blogger lately but I have been quite sick with pneumonia, bronchitis and a sinus infection.  When I get sick I do it up right(-:

I have been on the computer very little because I just have not had the energy to look around.  I have been a total couch potato…and I don’t even watch t.v. so as you can well imagine it has been a very long few weeks.

Anyway I didn’t come on here to whine I wanted to write about a fellow stamper that needs our help.  Alison’s father has recently had a stroke and like many people at this time needs a helping hand.  We all know the crafting world is huge and  our love for one another, I believe, is beyond compare.  So please visit Alison’s blog and give her your love and your help.

She is offering a wonderful bargain of digi images for $10 with all of the money going to help take care of her fathers many medical expenses.

You can purchase this set at the Stretch & Bubbles Blog.

I know you will be as touched by this as I am and you will feel wonderful for helping out.  So open your heart and send her a hug.

Take Care
&
God Bless,
Cheri
