bee my honey - Sugar nellie DT + Papertake weekly challenge + House of Gilli challenge

Good morning everyone, the weather is lovely here and really beginning to warm up not warm enough to not have the heating on at night yet though...I hope wherever you are its warming up to I know some of our American cousins are still having shockingly bad weather...bbbbrrrrrrr...my card for today is using this gorgeous Sugar Nellie Homegrown Manga called Honey Bee, isn't she a real cutie sitting on her honey jar and all that lush hair...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced the top and label of the jar...the lush paper is from Basicgreys Sugared collection and is called Adorable, I used a bit of kraft card for the layer and the punched flowers too...I added some of my favourite Thicker's, its a good thing I don't have these in more colours as I wouldn't make a card without them lol...I finished with a cream satin ribbon and a sprinkling of pearls...the fab sketch is from Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering this for a new challenge I found called House of Gilli challenge which is Ribbon and pearls...well today is supermarket day but my Dad doesn't need much shopping with all the time he will be spending away so a quick visit I think, but as always we will manage a coffee and a natter too...whatever your up to today have a wonderful sunny time Mina xxx
