Sweet Pea - Sugar Nellie

Happy Friday! 
I am here with my weekly Sugar Nellie post and today I used the cute little Sweet Pea digi for my card.  I've used this little gal before and likely will again just because she's so cute!
The digi sentiment is from TLC Creations and I've used one of My Favorite Things Blueprint dies and Lawn Fawn's Puffy Clouds.  You can find the image here at the Funky Kits shop.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Snow Love - Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Hi there and how are you doing?  I have to apologize, I have not been able to make it around to visit blogs like I want to but I hope to catch up with everything very soon.  I really enjoy popping by and seeing what everyone is doing but I just haven't been able to of late.
It's time for a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and the theme for this month is 'Snowflakes'.
This was a great theme for me this month because I was able to use another of those stamps which has been 'curing' and hadn't seen any ink yet.  The image is CC Designs and I do love these little lovebirds on this stamp called Snow Love.  I haven't used one of their stamps for awhile and wow, I am impressed.  They are deeply etched rubber and give you a clean, crisp stamped image the first time.  
To enter the challenge, you can interpret it however you want but your project must follow the 'Snowflake' theme. 

Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the gals on the team have created and here's a great chance to get a head start on your holiday cards for this year. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Time for Walkies

Hi there and I hope you are well.  I'm here with my Friday DT post for Sugar Nellie and today's card uses Time for Walkies, one of the All Dressed Up digi images by the artist Wendy Burns.  

You can find the image here at the Funky Kits shop. 
Sorry this is such a quick post but I am late and very short on time... nothing new but something I'd like to get a grip on soon!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

I'll Always Have Your Back Stuffie - Stamping Bella

This week's challenge over at the Stamping Bella blog is a sketch and it seemed to me these sweet little elephant stuffies would be perfect for it.  I do like these stamps and especially these adorable stuffies.  When you have the right image, papers and sketch, everything just falls into place, doesn't it?  The name of this cute little stamp is I'll Always Have Your Back Stuffie.
Here is the sketch - easy and perfect for having your image the focal point.  I used those lovely Maja Design papers... wish they were more readily available in my area because I'd buy, buy, buy!
I did the Ellie & Phant image in an earlier post and this time I used the W series of Copics to colour them instead of the C's and I like them both.

Reindeer Games - Sugar Nellie

Happy Friday!  Wowsa, the first month of the year is nearly done and most of us are probably wondering how that happened so quickly.
So far, our winter has been great with above freezing temps for this last week.  We didn't have much snow to begin with but with the warm temps, it's melting fast.
This is a digi image called Reindeer Games and is available here in the  Funky Kits shop.
 I've used Copics to colour the image, the Snowflake is from Impression Obsession and the Stitched Circle is from CC Designs.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Cherry Pip - Sugar Nellie

For my weekly Sugar Nellie DT card, I used this sweet little gal Cherry Pip which is a rubber stamp available over at the Funky Kits shop.
I've had this stamp for ages and have used her before here.  This is so amazing to me to be able to see how my colouring has progressed.  I first used this stamp in August of 2011 and was very pleased with the way it turned out then but wow... 4.5 years later, it looks like someone else created the 2016 card!
There's always plenty going on over at Sugar Nellie so pop back in often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Ellie Loves Phant Stuffies - Stamping Bella

I finally made a card!  I've posted a couple in the new year but they were made the first week of December and I hadn't sat down to craft since.   I had purchased a few of the Stamping Bella new Stuffies and I just love these little guys.  I followed the sketch over at Stamping Bella's challenge this week which you can find here:
This stamp is from her Stuffie line and is called Ellie Loves Phant and what a cute couple they make!
Now when I look at this, I think... why on earth didn't I colour those hearts pink instead of red?  A nice bright pink would have looked better but so often you don't notice that until the pic is taken and ready to be posted.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Time Together - Sugar Nellie

Happy Friday!  Even better than Happy Friday is that it's the last day of the work week and the weekend is here!  It seems to be busy around here.  I decided to start cleaning some cabinets and closets.  Got a good start too but then stalled out about mid-week and haven't got back at it.  My goal is to have them all cleaned by spring... my kitchen cupboards too.  I know that doesn't sound too ambitious but with working full time and usually going away for one day on the weekend, it doesn't leave a lot of extra time.  My intentions are good though... we'll talk about this again in the spring, ok?
For today`s card, I used Time Together which is a sweet little digi you can find at Sugar Nellie in the Funky Kits shop:

My Friend Flakey - Sugar Nellie

I am back with my first post of the new year.  I spent a wonderful Christmas with family and friends plus I had a few extra days off work for what I felt was a much needed break.  Had my shopping done early, presents wrapped and since we were going away, I didn't do any baking or decorating.
Hope you had a good Christmas as well and 2016 turns out to be a great year.
Time for my regular DT post for Sugar Nellie and today I am showing you the My Friend Flakey digi image 
  Since it's the winter season here on the prairies in Canada, I thought this snowman was perfect.  We have had very mild temps so far with practically no snow so far.
You can find the image here at the Funky Kits shop.

Penguin Party - Sugar Nellie

I don't know about you but for me, the days are flying by.  It seems like once December 1 arrives, they go into zoom mode and I feel like I don't have enough time for anything.  The girls from Sugar Nellie have been so gracious to give us a break over Christmas so I will use my time to get some shopping done, gifts wrapped, maybe even the odd good treat might come out of the oven.  If I am not back before then, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.
For today`s card, I used the Penguin Party digi which is one of my favourite digi stamps by Sugar Nellie.  The sketch is one I found on Pinterest and the scallop edge die is Marianne Craftables CR248.
