The Collector

Today's Sugar Nellie inspiration post is not my usual card format but instead I decided to make a bookmark for a fab little gal I know who loves to read.  It can also double as a tag as I am going to put a nice little greeting on the back of it for her and stick in within the pages of  a new book we bought for her.
I'd also like to give a shout out to my teamie, the very talented Janine who created some new watermarks for the Sugar Nellie DT - thanks Janine!
The Gorjuss Girl image is called New Heights and available at Funky Kits.  There are quite a few of these little cuties under the Gorjus/Santoro collection and some new ones in the 'new' section.

Be sure to stop by the Sugar Nellie blog often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
