Sugar Nellie ~ Carnival of Colour Blog Hop.

Roll up, roll up...and welcome to my little tent on the Carnival of Colour blog hop. There is no charge to enter but please feel free to visit the Carnival gift shop to buy yourself a little souvenir afterwards!
Follow the signs HERE and take home a little memento from your visit.
If you've arrived at my tent from the very talented Maya's then you're on the right track, if not or if you get lost along the way then head on back to the Sugar Nellie blog.

What's the 'Most wonderful time of the year'?...Christmas is!


Isn't this just the cutest kitty you ever did see? Waiting with his friends the robins for Santa to arrive and fill their stockings with Christmas treats. This sweet image is called Puss in Boots and is available to buy HERE.
It's been coloured with....wait for it....Polychromo pencils just for a change and slathered with lots of glamour dust but you may need to enlarge the photo to see the sparkle better. The DP is Echo Park, a Marianne die for the snowflake, a few pearls, and a cwc sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed my little show today, but please pop back again tomorrow to see the Saturday Performance.
The next tent for you to visit is Michele's where I know you will find a fabulous display waiting for you.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

  33. I hadn't noticed this stamp until I saw your card.......well! Those pencils are something else (there's a box of 120 in my cupboard for R to wrap for my birthday together with 34 AquaMarkers - I won 6) & as for what you've done with them......SPEECHLESS! I love the way your dangling socks echo the hanging ornaments of the design paper. Those robiins are just wonderful the way you've made their red breasts slightly orangey - so real.
    Thanks for all your hard work & inpspiration.
    Much love
