Sugar Nellie Fairy Glen Blog Hop.

Good morning and welcome to my little part of the Sugar Nellie blog hop.

You should have arrived here from Jane's blog, one of the lovely and talented new members of the DT. But if you've just popped by then you might like to start at the beginning over on the Sugar Nellie blog, you don't want to miss any of these fabulous cards!

There are 11 stamps in the Fairy Glen range, all of which are gorgeous. I keep changing my mind as to which I like the most, I just love them all and can't wait to my inky mitts on the rest of them.
For the hop I was given Rosie to play with...


Now is she sweet or is she sweet? I wanted to colour Rosie with quite pale and delicate shades, and I teamed her up with Melissa Frances 5th Avenue papers from Jill at the Hobby House. These papers are gorgeous, though they didn't photograph very well and look a little insipid here, they are much nicer in real life. As always Rosie has been coloured with DI's and SU inks, and the cardstock for matting is my favourite shade from SU, Baja Breeze.
The sentiment is from Elzybells, sadly no longer trading. The flower was made with a MFT die as was the teeny weeny butterfly - thank you Amanda. The leaf and heart swirl is a Magnolia Doo Hickey, many thanks to Suzie Q, and a little sprinkling of pearls for the finishing touch.


You can now buy all these beautiful rubber babies over at Funky Kits - but be quick as I think they will be a sell out!
OK, that's all from me today and I hope you like my card. The next stop along the hop is Mina and I know you'll be in for a treat. Please don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs as there will be candy picked at random from some of the comments left.
There will be a second blog hop tomorrow starting at the same place...the Sugar Nellie blog, and at the same time of 9am BST with a whole host of different and fantastic cards from the DT and the Sweeties.


Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

  73. I love your soft colouring of her - especially your use of the paper with the roses on to reflect her name & the rose she is holding. The way you hav sprinkled those pearls over her dress is so pretty & I just love the glittering of her wings too. She will have to be one of those I have coming to live with me.
