Craving Some Sugar

Sugar Nellie that is...

Well this is the last day of my holidays before busy life starts up again. It was good to be off for a week, but it will be good to be back to work & have some routine again.

This image reminds me of my little 2 1/2 year old niece - she's pretty darn cute. I didn't add a sentiment and probably just leave the inside blank too and use it for a note card.

I used copic markers to colour her up & clear glaze pen on the metal of the bike, which the camera didn't pick up but looks pretty cool when held toward the light (I'll have to add instructions to whomever I send this card to read it at a certain angle to the light! LOL!!)

I think I used half of my paper stash I own on this one! Layer, layer, layer - it may take extra postage - ha. Brown dew drops were paired up with the Martha Stewart edge punch & some satin & grossgrain ribbon finished it off.

That's it from me - have a lovely Sunday everyone!!
