Sugar Nellie

Happy Friday!  Yes, the weekend is finally here ... it's time to kick back and relax.  Have you seen these gorgeous new Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie?  I adore them!  I just got them a couple of days ago and today is the first chance I've had to play with them.  Sugar Nellie is having a Guest DT call and you can get all the details here.  There are so many talented people who have applied.  But I figured I'd give it a try anyway, so I'm entering this card in their GDT call.



This image is called High School Student.  Don't you just love her?  She's such a cutie with her little lunchbox and legwarmers.  And I love her big glasses!  Anyway, I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I distressed the edges of all my papers with distress ink and stitched around all my papers.  I added some ribbon and a bow.  I also added distress ink to my punched flowers, along with some chocolate pearls.  My sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps and is called Ticket Sentiments ... I just love these ticket stamps.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
