Finally it's Here, the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop.

Well the wait is finally over, and the Blog Hop to mark the release of the new range of images from Diana Daze at Sugar Nellie is now off the starting blocks. and when you see what the girls have come up with I'm sure you're going to love them too, I hope you are are set for your hop over the world wide web to see the fantastic creations.

I was lucky enough to be one of the lucky few chosen to launch these images and when I received my image I loved it, I was lucky enough to receive Shaken, not Kissed and I think it's fab, anyway onto the hop, you should have arrived here from Paulas page at Cardcraft Creations, if not I would suggest you pop over to the beginning at the Sugar Nellie and follow the links from there, you will be amazed at the creations they are all so different and all so beautiful.

I have made two cards for the release and have another ready to be put together which all going to plan i'll get posted later this evening.
This card I just love the colour combos used on it, and in case you wondered I used the sketch from The Sugar Bowl #12 and I love the layout for this one.

Receipe Used For This Card
Image - SHAKEN, NOT KISSED from Sugar Nellie
Coloured with - Copics
Sentiment - Hero Arts
DP - American Crafts
Ribbon - Dooblebug Designs
Also used various heart punchs, nestabilities and cuttlebug.
Glossy Accents was added to give the crown and shiny metal look.


The next sample I have made is more of a clean and simple look (well for me anyway), and totally different from the one above, I hope you like it........

Receipe Used To Make This Card

Image - SHAKEN, NOT KISSED from Sugar Nellie

Coloured with - Copics

Card Stock, Ribbon and Mirri Board from Stash

Again Glossy accents were used on the crown

Well girls, thats it for just now I'm afraid but please hop on over to Rowenas blog at craftypagen to continue on this journey around the world.

Please remember these Images by Diana Daze, are now available at Funky Kits, and Yes I've been over already and ordered the other ones, as I want them all.
