Sugar Nellie

Good Morning Everyone

I hope your weekend has started well and you have some nice things planned.

I have made a card today using a Sugar Nellie image which I bought a few weeks ago.  Her name is Manga Girl #1 which you can get from Funky Kits here.


I have been desperate to use the my new Portobello Road paper pack which I bought a couple of weeks ago!  In fact everything on my card is new today!  The ribbon is also from the same collection which I bought last week in Yorkshire!  The pin is from my blogging buddy Laurie who gave me a selection to try out! 

I think my colouring is awful on this card, the hair and skin aren’t great and I nearly didn’t post the card but I guess we should post the good and the bad (and I also liked the paper too much!) I have been watching a lot of colouring videos lately to try and improve.  It so frustrating sometimes and it does take away the enjoyment. 

Anyway!  I had better get going, got a few bits to do before I go and meet my sister and nephew.

Have a great day everyone.
