Sweet Little Sugar Nellie



Good morning!! I actually went outside and did a little weeding this morning...I should have the yard looking pretty good in a month or so!!! Boy, do I need to win the lottery so I can hire a gardner, maid, cook, and a stamping assistant...someone to clean up after me in the craft room...whoohoo!!! Oh, well, a girl can dream...anyway....

I just love these sweet little Sugar Nellie images....this one from Funky Kits is called Daisy and I colored her for the Copic Creations' Challenge #1 to color face/skin tones. I used E00 Skin White as the base color and shading was done with R11 Pale Cherry Pink.




The designer paper is from Junkitz's Summer Collection called Sunshine and Summer Mulitstripe soon to be found at Rubbernecker Stamps. The flourishes were punched from an EK Success punch, the blue Candy Dots were from Taylored Expressions, and the flowers from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for coming by this morning and I hope you have a great day!!!
