hop hop hop with the Sugar Nellie Country Cousins...

Good morning everyone I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend, today is my 3rd Blogaversary, wow how amazing is that, I can still remember the very first card I posted and how bad it was lol...I have been so lucky with followers and have made some fantastic friends and met some wonderful crafters along the way too...but without anymore waffling I wont hold you up on the hop any longer
I'm the first stop on the brand new Sugar Nellie Country Cousins release blog hop and you probably arrived here from the Sugar Nellie blog...oh boy are you in for a treat these are amazingly gorgeous girly stamps you will love them and the Sugar Nellie DT girls have some fabulous creations to show you...oh and don't forget to leave a comment on all our blogs to stand a chance of winning some sweet candy

I used the gorgeous Chillax for my card, I love the way you can use her for any occasion and she looks so relaxed and laid back, well chillaxed I guess lol, shes a dream to colour...I used distress inks to colour her and I used these gorgeous Scandinavian type papers, I'm sorry but I don't know what make they are as they have no writing on them all...now wouldn't you think they would want to take credit for these lush papers...I added loads of buttons, some fantastic huge gingham ribbon and a knot and a covered tag...the little sentiments are pieces of ribbon, I only have a small amount of this left and will be devastated when its all used up...the Country Cousins are available now at FunkyKits and I would love to know which are your favourites, I don't think I can choose betwenn them, love them all...your next stop on our hop is the amazingly talented and one of life's all round sweethearts
PAT

who has something stunning to show you...don't forget to leave comments so you have the chance of winning candy...have a wonderful weekend everyone and enjoy the rest of your hopping and good luck with the candies
