Sugar Nellie ~ Carnival of Colour Blog Hop Part 2.

Roll up roll up..again, and welcome back to my little tent for the Saturday performance here at the Carnival of Colour blog hop. I'm so pleased you came back to see me one more time before I roll up my tent. I guess you all enjoyed your time at the Carnival yesterday? There were lots of you who bought souvenirs from the Gift shop but if not you need to visit this tent HERE.

If you've arrived here after stopping by the fabulous display at Maya's then you are on the right path, if not, or if you get a little lost on the journey then please go back and start at the Sugar Nellie tent.

'Tis the Season...I'm here with another Christmas image to show you.


Isn't this just the sweetest image you ever did see? I think it will be my most used Christmas stamp this year. It's called Snow Buddies and you can buy it HERE. It's a really nice size of stamp so I kept the layout very simple and the embellies minimal, much like yesterdays card.
I returned to my comfort zone and coloured with DI's, and again there's plenty of glamour dust sprinkled about. The DP's are from Dream Street, another Marianne die for a different snowflake, a few pearls and a cwc sentiment completes the card.

I hope you've enjoyed the Carnival as much as I have, the next stop is Michele where I know something fabulous will be waiting for you.

A little footnote for my buddies:
My friends all know by now that I average one card a fortnight, and this week I've managed to make three!! It's been great fun for me but no housework/laundry etc has been done and I've had no time to leave comments plus my inbox is full of emails waiting for replies. So the plan of attack for today is chores first and then catch up with all my lovely friends.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

  7. Hi hon...
    Well i LOVE this card! The pinks and blues are perfect for this image, and of course the glitter... it's FAB!
    And as you know too, I'm a bit like you in being a slowbie... but my garden calls, the curtains I'm trying to make call, and my new iPad calls to be played with too.... so I'm missing in action!! LOL! Ah well, my stash will still be there..

  10. Afraid I added to your inbox yesterday - feel free to delete me! You must be exhausted - as a fellow Snailcarder I know only too well & you have a full time job as well. Don't suppose you've had any sleep all week? Anyhow back to today's offering - at least I didn't choke today for I could see I was on the right blog for there are your inks & not an animal in sight. Love the layering of that snowflake & the way it picks up on the starbursts of the maroon horizontal panel. The colouring of that umbrella - I could sit & look at it all day.
    Much love & please get some sleep.
    Thanks for all you do.
