A little bit of sugar

Good morning blogworld

I'm am so super happy to be doing this post - you really cannot guess how happy I am!

I had an email from the lovely Fi awhile ago who asked if I would like a Guest Design Team spot at The Sugar Bowl for this month's challenge. It took me all of 3 nano seconds to say yes - I was even polite and didn't bite her hand off!

I've loved Sugar Nellie stamps for years - some of the very first stamps I brought were from them (Simon and Lola range, still got them and still think the little adoption certificate sheet is just so darn cute).  I was also spotlighted once, which made my day. But being asked to Guest is the icing on the cake and I'm so pleased that Fi asked me - so thank you Fi you really made my day / week / month / year!

So now that I've stopped gushing I'll get down to business!  The theme for this month's challenge is 'April showers bring May flowers' - and you must use a Sugar Nellie image on your project to enter the challenge.

I was very kindly allowed to pick a digi and this is what I made with it:

I used:

Digital stamp:
Sugar Nellie stamp: Return to Fairy Glenn release - A Little bit of gossip
coloured with my Copics

Memory Box - border and flourish (which I've chopped up)
Die-namics - for the corner

K & Company - Classic K Bailey

Anything else?
Fabric flowers and brad - from my stuff
Craftwork Cards - sentiment
Stickles glitter glue

I'm still experimenting with the colouring, hence the weird nose on her face (remind anyone of the Beauty and the Beast show from the 90s?) but at least I'm trying!  I'm seriously considering enrolling on one of Alyce from Kit and Clowder's colouring classes - but as always it's finding the time!  Oh, and persuading hubby to part with the money!!

So there you go - my little bit of happy today!  Hope that you love Sugar as much as I do and that I'll see you in the challenge.  Otherwise I will be back soon with another card.  Oh and one day soon I will no doubt get caught up with commenting (yeah, who am I kidding!!!).
