Winter Love

Morning guys! How's everyones week going so far? Good I hope! I'm still poorly but hopefully will be feeling better soon once my antibiotics have kicked in:)

On Friday I got my monthly Design Team package from Sugar Nellie and oh my how sweet it is! I will never get used to receiving dt packages, I always feel like the luckiest crafter alive to be given such wonderful stamps and goodies! I just had to use this new Diane Duda stamp first, tis my favourite I think and they're called 'Winter Birds' and are available to buy here. To see all the new releases from Sugar Nellie go here as Leanne Ellis, Diane Duda and Mary Hall have all got new releases out-you're gonna love em! I thought these birdies would go super well with my new MME Love Me Do paper set available here from Quixotic Paperie-they are soooo gorgeous! I thought these beautiful birdies would be fab as a Winter anniversary card perhaps or even a not so traditional Christmas card to a loved one. I might save it for Ian for our 1st wedding anniversary in January;)

For the layout I've used the sketch over at the MME blog because even though its more geared towards a scrapbooking layout there's no way I could resist having a shot at the fab prize they've got since I love MME so much! Also I'm going to enter this over at Cute Card Thursday (another awesome prize this week!) where the theme is primary colours, and Allsorts where they want to see sparkle!

Stuff: Sugar Nellie stamp 'Winter Birds' by Diane Duda available here, copics to colour, MME Love Me Do paper pack and accessory sheet available here, Cosmic Shimmer iced crystal jewels (think that's the name!) for snow on branch, flowersoft polar white for earmuffs, sewing machine, dcwv glitter stack, stickles for adding glitter around hearts, accessory sheet of MME paper pack, hero arts sentiment, distress ink in broken china.

Here's a close up of the cuties:~

Well that's it from me today, back to my sick bed! Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you might leave-I love reading them and do try to come visit you back! Be back tomorrow with another Quixotic Challenge DT card!
