Sugar Nellie Country Cousins

I made this card a couple of weeks ago and I've only just realised that I haven't yet posted it on my blog.
It is of course a Sugar Nellie stamp, from the Home Grown Country Cousins range and she's available to buy HERE and she's called Outdoor Adventures.

She's coloured with the usual DI's, the papers are Dream Street, a Doo Hickey swirl and a couple of flowers.
Very simples.
I know this is very short by my usual standards but I'm off to bed now. I'm still full of this horrible snotty cold and I don't feel at all well. I think this blasted cold has got squatters rights!
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx
