Sugar Nellie's "Under The Sea" Blog Hop - Day 1

Hello sweet friends.  Today is the first day of our Sugar Nellie "Under The Sea" Sneak Peeks!


If you have arrived here from the sweet and talented Marianne then you are in the right place.  If not, then you may want to hop over to the Sugar Nellie Blog to start at the beginning. 

Now let me share with you the card I made using the beautiful stamp "Under The Sea" . . .


Isn't she a beautiful mermaid?  And I love that adorable little turtle swimming along with her.  I colored the image with copics and colored pencils and used some Glamour Dust for a bit of sparkle.  I added some pearl "bubbles".  I've used jute ribbon and the seaweed and shell were made with my CC Cutter dies.  This gorgeous stamp will be available at Funky Kits on Friday, August 3, along with the rest of this fabulous new release. 

Your next stop on the hop is one of our brand new DT gals, the sweet and talented Lisa .  I know you're going to love her beautiful work!  If you get lost along the way you can always hop back over to the Sugar Nellie Blog for the list of blog hop stops.  Don't forget to leave comments at each stop so that you'll be eligible to win some yummy candy!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Hugs, Anita
