I'm in love - Sugar Nellie DT

Good morning everyone...I'm in love...how fantastically gorgeous is Nathan image, look at those beautiful eyes, hes one of the new release Adorables from Sugar Nellie and he will be on sale at FunkyKits sometime this week so keep an eye out for him...I'm off shopping with my beautiful Daughter today and I suppose she will be good to her old Mum and let me buy her lunch of course, well shes good like that lol...we are shopping for trousers for her new job which starts on Monday, it will mean a lot of travelling but shes really excited about it...my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT of course, and I coloured this beautiful little fella with distress inks, I really love colouring these Adorables they are so beautifully drawn aren't they, the papers are a mix of a scrap of green gingham and Basicgrey Marjolaine Coffee cake paper, all I needed to add was some ribbon and a knot and bow and a scattering of buttons to finish it...the lush sketch is from Sweet Stampin challenge and I'm also entering this for the Fussy and Fancy A card for a child challenge, I'm sure there was another challenge I had in mind too but the jelly brain is in full swing this week...this weekend I bought myself an Ipod shuffle for my hols because Phil is really into snorkeling on holiday and there's only so much time you can spend watching your husbands booty and head taking alternate chances to surface before you need some entertaining but it didn't come with a main charger just a usb one so I will have to have a hunt for one while I'm in town, is it just me or is that daft, I know long gone are the days when the 'batteries included' attitude used to be the norm but a charger I would have thought would have been essential wouldn't you...right moan over...have a wonderfully sunny day everyone

Just once, I'd like to be the first to comment. I am usually up about 3 hours US time after you post and I get up pretty early, but my eye are all the way awake so I wait until after work. Anyway this is one of my favorites. The coloring is spectacular of course. I also like the way cut the ovals. Yup! it's my favorite. I love that you enjoy your family so much. It makes you even more endearing.
