Sweet Sugar Nellie fairy

Hi folks I hope you are all having a fabby weekend so far.  Well I'm a happy bunny as I've had my first cuddle of my sisters little one and she's oh so cute certainly didn't want to hand her back!  She's been passed around all weekend bless her and not a peep from her either she's so content.  My sister went with Elsie Rose for the name and it kinda suits her actually.  I think I may have my first babysitting duty in a few weeks as they have a wedding reception to attend and it will be overnight as well, so cannot wait!!

Anyway, enough ramblings popped on to show you another Christmas card that makes a total of four so far - stacking up aren't they NOT!! 

I've used another of my stamps from Sugar Nellie called 'Wish upon a star' and she's so darn cute.  I was a little worried about colouring the skirt but it turns out its really easy to do.  I've used my copics to colour her for a change.  I used the great sketch from over on The Sugar Bowl with the added option of 'worn turquoise' colour scheme.  The papers used were 'Snowed in' by My Mind's Eye and I couldn't decide whether they were really turquoise or not but went with them anyway.  However, by the time I'd 'dirtied' them up a bit with some walnut stain distress ink and coloured the image in it doesn't really look very turquoise at all, but hey I like it anyway and at least I followed the sketch!

A bit of a side view and you can see the inside is decorated to compliment the front.  Its all been Stickled and the flower is made up of a mixture of a Papermania fabic flower, a couple of paper ones I had in my stash and finished off with a rose from WOC.

My last piccie is a close up of the gorgeous stamp, isn't she a cutie.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Right, thats all from me for now.  The kiddiewinkles are on the Wii at the moment so I'm going to sneak in a little colouring, that is until the arguing starts!!!!  Hope you all manage to squeeze in a little of what makes you happy.
Take care,
