My Last Card for 2010...Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 50

I've managed to venture into my craft room today, the first time I've set foot in there in almost a month. But what a lovely time I've had playing and how much I've missed it.
I've been taking a little break from the Sugar Bowl so hadn't submitted a card for yesterdays challenge. So I thought I would follow the sketch for this card instead.


The image is another beautiful Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy, available to purchase HERE. The papers are Basic Grey Marjolaine, and the sentiment stamp is from LOTV.
The option is embossing, either dry or heat embossing but.....I forgot!


I rotated the sketch as my image was vertical and not horizontal.
Because it's the Sugar Bowls 2nd Birthday there are 2 prizes to be won this time. Each prize consists of Nestabilities and Sugar Nellie stamps with each prize worth over £50!

Before I go I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy and Healthy 2011, and to thank you all for your lovely comments since I started my blog back in April. I have met the most lovely people and made lots of new friends.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

  15. Hi Elaine
    lovely card, colouring is O.O.T.W.
    I am soooooooooooo pleased that you were able to venture in to your craft room, after such a long time. I haven't been in mine since I finished the last Christmas card, I was soooooooo sick of making them after I had finished the last one I said that I never wanted to make another Christmas card again lol.
    Perhaps now the pressure is off, you will get a bit more YOU time to create.
    hope 2011 is a great year for you & your loved one's.

    BIGGEST of hugs
