Sugar Nellie Sketch Saturday

For the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge they want you to make a child's card. I had this guy all coloured in, so thought I would use him. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday which I thought was perfect for this wee guy. It's a 6inch card, I normally use 5inch, but the image was just a bit big for the 5. But I'm liking it, and can see me making more of this size. The papers are a download from sweet shoppe designs by H Roselli. The sentiment is a stamp from Whimsy stamps and the 4 is cut with a sizzix die and I have used the zig zag MS punch. Coloured with polychromos.

The Sugar Bowl & Friday Sketches

Two cards today, both using new Mangas from Sugar Nellie. First up I have a card following the sketch over at Friday Sketches. I have used some papers that were free from a magazine - they are by Nitwits. I knew I really wanted to use them, but kept picking them up and putting them down again. So decided now was the time. The wee Bee was part of the set too. I cut the circle with a die from Nellie Snellen (I think) and the sentiment I have had an age and don't know who it is by. And a bit of seam binding to finish off.

My second card is following the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl. The option was clean and simple. I'm not really very good at that bit, but think I managed it here. Just used white card and black matt. The sentiment is from a Popcorn set from Crafters Companion.
