My first twisted easel card - Sugar Nellie DT - Fairy Tale challenge + Stamp Something challenge

Good morning everyone...well I'm all alone this weekend, my darling Phil is away road racing, gorgeous Daughter is visiting friends in Belfast so there's just me and my Dad so we are heading out to do something haven't a clue what yet as I cant really drag him around the craft stores can I...well I could but would get fed up with the moaning lol...might take him for lunch instead...my card for today is my very first twisted easel card, I must admit I was really surprised how easy it was...don't know why I thought it was though...isn't this little Connie digi from Sugar Nellie just stunning...look at those eyes


I showed my Daughter my first two Sugar Nellie DT cards and she didn't like my Bambino card but loved this one and she said it was the eyes, I love her hair too though...oh well you cant control brutal honesty can you lol...I coloured her with Distress inks and used this amazing scrapbook papers but I'm so sorry but I haven't a clue what make it is as I forgot to look and it was on the back of it...oopsie...the Home sentiment is from the same sheet, I had thought of prying that off to see if was behind that but would be gutted if it ripped...I used a stunning word ribbon and a mixture of buttons, one tied with string to finish...I'm entering this for the Stamp Something digi challenge and the Fairy Tale Challenge children's challenge too...I'm not used to being by myself on a Saturday so feel a bit lost this morning, so I'm off to pamper myself, give myself a manicure and then get ready to go out...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fabulous one...I have new candy for you tomorrow and its a brill one too so don't forget to pop by then
