A Christmas Sassy...

Good evening folks and a quick post from me. Here is my next card for The Sugar Bowl challenge...not a Christmas stamp but it could be..what do you think?? The papers a mix from my stash, can't remember which brands they are but they are Christmas ones!! The image is "Little Light of Mine" from the Simply Sassy range of Sugar Nellie, which you can buy here from Funky Kits, I have coloured her with copics, added the snowflakes, glitter and wonky stitching.

Today is the anniversary of the death of my nephew who was tragically taken from us 6 years ago after being dropped off at school so as a special wee tribute to him I am going to offer 2 Sugar Nellie stamps to one lucky follower from the next release of just leave a comment by Sunday 21st at 9pm on this post and I will choose a comment at random. You don't need to post this on your blog or sidebar.The only thing is you'll need to wait until the stamps are released but that's not long.

The Sugar Bowl - sketch
Crafters Companion - glitter
The Crafty Pad- cute & girly
Craft Us Crazy - anything goes
Fab 'n' funky - A stitch in time

I'm seeing these adorable images more and more...think I'm hooked! You did a fab job on your card, and I love that you used a 'non-Xmas' image to create a Chrissy card....great versatility!

Can't imagine how your family cope with the tragic story of your nephew, you are obviously close and support each other wonderfully.

So pleased you joined our CRAFTY PAD cute n girly challenge this week! Good luck!

Hugs, Ali x
