JINGLE BELLS & TINKLE BELLS BLOG HOP

Its here at last!!!!!!!






Today sees the start of the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop, to celebrate the The Christmas Stamp Releases, over at Funky Kits today at 10am.






Ok first things first, you should have come here from the main Sugar Nellie Blog, if not pop back and check out any details regarding today's blog hop.






Lets get started.........






Here is my first card, for this 2 day blog hop extravaganza!!!!!



Isn't she the most cutest fairy.





She is called Little Apprentice and she is one of the new releases available today at Funky Kits


As soon as they were sent to me I printed her out and coloured her in using my Copics, and went for a traditional colour combo, but theni went on my holidays...... so I had 2 weeks to think about what I was going to create with her...




I decided on a kriss cross style card, using various items from my stash.



Here is the card, open, this is going to be for someone very special!!!!!
I hope you like and this has wetted your appetites for looking at more!!!!!

But wait before you go make sure you leave a comment at each blog as Sugar Mama is going to pick a random winner!!!!!!

Right hop on over to to the gorgeous Ali and see what she has to tempt you.

Take care and enjoy the hop!!

Hugs Sarah B X

  22. Love the traditional colours with a little twist - the olive green! This fairy looks so cheeky so it's quite an apt name for her. Now being an "apprentice" myself I was intrigued to read that you colour first then think about the design of the card. Hmmmm - shall have to try that; maybe I'd get on more quickly.
