you cant beat a bit of gingham - Sugar Nellie DT

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fantastic Easter break then?...ours was very quiet, family lunch Sunday then everyone left me in peace while I spent the whole day in my craft room, you will never guess how many cards I made and how many images I coloured, lets put it this way I have a permanent dent in my finger from my paint brush and my eyes are killing me and they look just as bad from the outside as they do from my side too...my poor Dad is finding it very frustrating with the Easter break because everything is closed so he cant get his dented car sorted...I think he needs a coffee infusion do you...today's card is for the Sugar Nellie DT and I used the fab sketch from The Sugar Bowl for it to...I hope Marlene doesn't mind that I tilted it to fit the image...this gorgeous little Simply Sassy girl is called Party Frills and I coloured her with distress inks and I think I may have overdosed on the gingham a bit as I even paper pieced her in it...poor lamb will have checks before her eyes lol...the gingham is from Craft creations and I added a white ribbon, a gorgeous Prima flower and some buttons to finish...I'm entering this for the CES challenge Spring colours/Image challenge and the Fussy and Fancy Friday Springtime challenge too as I think nothing says spring like a bright blue gingham and this image...right I'm off to put eye drops in and get my clag on (which to you non geordie's is make up lol) and go out for coffee with my Dad...have a wonderful day everyone

Uschi said...

The simple design of the paper can be excellent work the great theme! Then, you did overtime at Easter, or? I envy you to your motivation.
I was constantly on a visit on Easter in our two families and had unfortunately no time to tinkering.
There can be only better!

All the best
Uschi
