A trio of sweet Sugar Nellies

A big happy hello to all from my neck of the woods.  Now would you believe I actually started to write this post at 11 a.m. this rather miserable Tuesday morning and a good 12 hours later I am actually getting to finish it off!  Yes it has been that sort of a day, a good day but just a busy one.  We took the kiddies out for pizza and then decided to go and see Mr. Popper's Penguins which we all thoroughly enjoyed and then a stint in the small kiddies arcade, a very fun day was had by all.  I was also extremely excited as I saw a poster advertising the next Twilight instalment 'Breaking Dawn' out on Nov 18th and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!! 

Anyway I digress, I wanted to get on here to show you all a card I was commissioned to do.  Didnt really have any guidelines so I decided I would do a card in a style which I saw last year sometime and has always stuck in my head.  Now I don't know whether this type of card has a name and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it so I can't pass on the credit, so sorry, but it was fun to do and I liked the idea that I could have more than one image as a focal point.  I do warn you I have a more piccies than normal, sorry, but I hope you like.

First up a piccie of the front of the card where you can see it all tied up.  I used the fab sketch from over on The Sugar Bowl with the added theme of blue.  I used my 'Daisy' stamp on the front, she was one of the first stamps I ever bought and one I always go back to, just love her!  She is coloured with prismas and blended with sansodor.  The papers are from GCD and I'm beginning to panic as the stack is going down and I have no more!!!

Next up shows the front of the card opened up where I have used another sugar nellie stamp and again those gorgeous papers.

This is a piccie of the inside of the card, using the same papers and a sugar nellie again. 

Next couple of piccies are just a couple of close ups of the images.

I used an 8 x 8 card base for this one so its a lot larger than I normally do and as I said before I love the fact that I could use more pretty images.

Right folks I would like to enter my card into a few fab challenges:
