Fashionista....and some news!!

Good morning fellow bloggers. Here we are then the last day of my holiday and it's done nothing but rain!! This is the first of my posts today although housework permitting whether I can more posted or not..first of I will share my news since I have had the official email from the lovely Gayle. this is the very last time I can enter The Sugar Bowl Challenge....oh no I hear you say but that's may or may not have seen the post yesterday on The Sugar Bowl, well if you didn't I have been asked to join The Sugar Bowl Design fab is that?? I am still jumping and clapping and all excited as I love Sugar Nellie stamps so much and this is just perfect...the sugar on the cake!! Thank you so much Gayle, I feel so lucky and honoured to be part of the team!!

So for my card, which is my favourite colour combo...brown, green and blue I have used MME - So Sophie papers, the stamp is Fashionista from Sugar Nellie, which you can buy here from Funky Kits, I coloured her with copics this time, I punched the scallop border and as I still haven't found my MFT rolled flower die, I have cut those by hand, added a couple of buttons and a message....oh that wonky stitching too!!
