Day 6, and counting, how long will it last??

Day 6, how much longer do you think this will last, better get some more cards made or I'll have run out LOL

Todays card, isn't really my card, Yes I did make it but I didn't really design it, it's one of the cards us Aberdeenshire girls got to make on the Sugar Nellie on Tour day back in August.

The day was fantastic, everyone seemed to have a blast, loads of creative juices were flowing that day (despite the fact I'd been at a wedding the day before).

Todays card was one of the cards designed by the fantastical talented KATE, who works in the House of Sugar up in Elgin


I love this card design and keep your eyes peelied because I know it'll appear again soon(ish)

Used to make this card
Stamp - Daisy, of course from SUGAR NELLIE
Coloured with - Promarkers
DP - Ella Blue from GCD Studios (FAB PAPER)

Cardstock, a little bling, a few punches and nesties, and a set of tweezers, yes tweezers.

The tweezers in case you are wondering are because Kate saw a tutorial on line on how to make your own flowers, and she had us all make our own twisted flowers and I have to say simple and effective, and I have used this style of flower again on several occasions, even though my first couple went in the bin, because when I took them off my tweezers they ended up looking a ringlets you would put in long hair (LOL)
Anyway I would just like to say a HUGE thankyou to Karen, Kate and Erica for the fun filled day we all shared together, we had a blast and we had some YUMMY cupcakes of course, couldn't have a SUGAR NELLIE day without a little sugar.

Believe me these cupcakes where mmmmmmmm, all pink and glitter covered too, and yes they were meant to have glitter on them.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read my waffle, hope you like Kates card idea, I did.
