Up Up and Away - Sugar Nellie

Hi Again!

Well I am back with some more sweetness!  This is my inspiration card for the Sugar Nellie blog.  

I have used the ever so gorgeous "Up Up and Away" which is available in rubber from Funky Kits and its on SALE at the moment!

I just teamed her up with some free paper which came from a magazine recently and a die from La La Land.  She is coloured with copics and I fussy cut her out so she could float off into the clouds!  I added some glossy accents to the balloon and then just a touch of glamour dust and pearls to finish off! 

Well that really is it from me today!  

Have a great day and I will see you soon.

Happy Times at MAWTT!!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope your week has gone well and you are looking forward to the Easter weekend break.  I always love the Easter break, I love that Spring is here and flowers are out, and hopefully we can look forward to some sunshine!  

I am here today for the new challenge over at Moving Along With the Times!  Our gorgeous Judith is the hostess this week and the theme is:

"Use the word HAPPY"

Simple enough right!  I have actually used a die which was free in a recent magazine which I thought would be perfect for this challenge:

The colours in the photo aren't great but the purple's are much more vibrant.  I used some textured bazzill cardstock and added some embellishments from the Hobby House including Mulberry Rose Flowers and pearls.  Simple enough!  

I hope you can pop on over to the challenge blog to check out all the inspiration and I hope you can join us this week!  

Have a wonderful Easter and hopefully I will see you soon!  

Love and Hugs
