Stamp Something DT meets Sugar Nellie DT and I'm back!

Hi lovelies! I've been missing for just over a week and some of you have been wondering where I got to! Thanks for your concern! But actually I've been away for a few days to visit family, which I had planned to mention but I didn't end up getting online with one thing and another. Seems to have been a busy week all round:) Missed you all while I was away! So how have you all been? I have been sneaking in a few minutes here and there to check mr google reader out to see what you've all been upto! I'm sorry to say that I seem to be totally behind in my blog visiting, emails and the lot, I'm so sorry if I haven't replied to you, I shall do all those things shortly. Right onto the card, and then a bit more chatter;)

Todays card is for my Stamp Something dt card, with the challenge this week being cute and fuzzy, good theme isn't it? I've used this darling stamp I got in my dt kit from Sugar Nellie. Totally gorgeous! I absolutely loved colouring her and her little friend in:) All the papers are Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly, love this paper stack! The sentiment is by Stampendous which I got a little bit stung by while I was away as I picked it up, didn't notice the brand and for some reason thought it was 99p but then realised after I'd paid it was £4.99!!! I could buy a Sugar Nellie stamp for that! So you'll be seeing it a lot in different variations so I get me moneys worth! hahaha.

Stuff: Sugar Nellie stamp 'Angel Wishes' available from Funkykits here, copics to colour, sakura clear stardust pen to add glitter from Quixotic Paperie here, Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly papers, bling from stash, SU choc chip cardstock, Papermania felt ribbon (from last year), sewing machine, distress ink in frayed burlap and worn lipstick.

Here's a little close-up:~
I'm going to enter this into a few challenges: Winter Wonderland (open theme), Simon Says (all that sparkles), The Pixie Cottage (celebrate), LaLa Land (ribbon).

So what plans do you have for the weekend? Any Halloween parties?! We're having a little party tomorrow then Saturday night we're taking Leo to a local country park that are having a Halloween party for kiddies-it sounds so fun! I'll tell you all about it after! We got lots of Halloween decorations and stuff yesterday and this afternoon Leo helped me bake some cupcakes which I'll ice in the morning! I'll have to take some pics of Leo in his costume to show you-he's wearing this skeleton outfit with glow in the dark bones! Cute! Well I shall be back soon with another Christmassy card probably tomorrow:) Take care and thanks for popping by to see me and any comments you might leave, I love hearing from you xxx

  7. MM Rowena,
    Beautiful card chick and I love the Cosmo Cricket papers. You were stung on the stamp chick over here that would equal in AUS dollars about $12.50 now that is too much for a sentiment don't you agree. Tomorrow is Beltane for the Southern Hemisphere and we will be doing a little something on this side of the world.
    Take care

  8. Hi there,

    Glad to have you back. Fabulous card. The image is so cute and I love your colouring. The sentiment is great but £4.99 is a bit steep!!
    Glad to say we have a Halloween party to go to tomorrow plus some fireworks too.
