Winter Sophie

Morning all, I'm not even going to talk about the weather today, it so doesn't deserve a mention lol! I would normally have a Dare U 2 Digi Stamp DT card to show you today but as of last week Dare U has gone fortnightly to allow for the fact that it may be quieter during the summer holidays...having said that we have had loads of entries over the last week and there is still one week to go on the current challenge which is 'distressing'...must be all the r**n we've had this week...everyone is indoors crafting lol!

Today's card was supposed to be for The Sugar Bowl challenge but I should'a read the blog challenge rules that you have to use a Sugar Nellie image on your card lol! Thanks Pops for telling me lol! I have used the sketch from the Sugar Bowl challenge and I've used this rather gorgeous little 'Winter Sophie' image from the Digi Stamp Boutique and she has been coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto a circular scalloped nestie! The design papers are a digi download from Summertime Designs and the kit is called Winter Gifts! The red cardstock is from my card box! I've embellished with some little heart buttons, flowers, brads and punched flowers today lol! Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a good day :)

This is gorgeous Donna, all works so well and such a pretty scene. I'm not mentioning the weather either LOL. Doom and gloom atm. Busy day ahead, packing, tidying, all the boring stuff. Enjoy whatever!
