Sugar Nellie Blog Hop!!



Welcome to the Sugar Nellie Blog hop! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can join in the fun! If you have come from my friend, Janny's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, why don't you pop back to the Sugar Nellie blog and start from the beginning ! There are prizes to be won on each DT members blog.

Now the theme of today is using an 'old' stamp...now that is funny because Sugar Nellie is only 2 years old! But it is good fun to get some of our dusty, neglected stamps out from the back of the cupboard.

Now I have decided to colour 'Little Artist' from the Home Grown range and if you leave a comment below I will be picking a winner and you will be in with a chance of receiving this cute little fella' all for yourself! You have until midnight GMT on Sunday (21st) to leave a comment and I will announce the winner on Monday!My image has been coloured with prisma pencils and blended with Sansador. For the edges I have used a Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge stamp. The papers are all from Kaiser Scrapbook and I have distressed the edges and again stamped parts of the orange paper with the Tim Holtz grunge stamp.I wanted to keep the layout pretty simple as the card is for a boy so have just added some letter tiles, some brads and a Tim Holtz 'Cherish' tag...all 'manly' embellishments!!
Thanks for popping by my blog today and now your next stop is the wonderful Marlene! Have fun !!

Hi Judy,
What an adorable boys card ( which I'm rubbish at, I don't do male cards at all!). Love this image,I wish I could say it reminds of my boy, but alas, Mr Ants-in-his-pants could never sit still for long enough to paint!
You certainly did this stamp justice.
