Sugar Nellie and Trinkettes!


Morning all! Well that is it. The boys have their bags packed and marched off to school for the last time for 6 weeks.
Tomorrow I will encourage them to sleep past 6:30 am! 8:00am would be perfect! What are the chances???

Anyway, today I want to get the house ship shape before chaos reigns!

But before that I want to share with you the last of the teacher's gifts I made. Again, I made one of the gorgeous 'Trinkettes' charm braclets, available from Funky Kits, which took me, oooooohhhh maybe all of 5 minutes to put together! Put it in a pretty bag and voila!

The card is made using on of the gorgeous Sugar Nellie images from the Sweet Art Ebony collection. I have had this image for ever in my collection but I love the motion of the wind in her hair. Just gorgeous!

I used shades of blue and brown prisma pencil to colour her and then used some of the stunning paper from the Ella Blue collection from G.C.D Studios. I wasn't going to stitch this one together as I was putting it together quite last minute, but then it looked very bare to me...so it got the sewing machine treatment!! To finish I added a Cats Life sentiment, a stain ribbon bow, flower and a couple of pins!

I am quite happy with this one...so happy that I made 2 of them! One to give away and one to put in my Etsy shop!! :) It will be listed in there shortly!

Thanks for your time today! I love reading all your comments and they are very much appreciated.

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

Judy

I have a question...I have been given some Prismacolor Artstix...do they work in just the same way as the pencils?

Cheers

Beautiful card Judy. I'm always in awe of your colouring, just amazing! Fab colour choice, I love those papers, but I haven't seen them anywhere to buy some?
I am totally blaming you though!!
I spent a flippin' fortune yesterday on those beads, and it's all your fault! Like I need any encouragement ha.
Love Elaine xx
