Sugar Nellie Stamp - Fingers Crossed

Photo above taken without flash, below with flash!

Good Morning everyone, or Good Afternoon depending on what part of the world you are in!!!

Yesterday I was inspired by my Sugar Nellie stamps and decided to go ahead and put a card together. I love how this one turned out and it's got me eager to make the others now!! Woohoo! This stamp is called "Fingers crossed" and I colored her in copics and raised her up to give a little dimension. The pretty background paper is DCWV Whimsy, very delicate shades which I love. I stamped the florishes and embellished her with paper flowers and butterfly gems. So what do you think???

I look foward to making more of these Sugar Nellie cards in the coming days, I may even post some of my previously made ones.....just coz I love them so much!!!

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
Today here in Miami it is sunny with not a cloud to be seen in the sky, it was around 70 degrees when I took Thijs to school but by this afternoon I'm sure it will be back in the 80's again!! Feels like summer already! In another month Thijs will be off from school for the summer, a whole 12 weeks so we need to decide what we are going to do. We have checked out a few summer camps but not decided completely if we want to send him because he's still so young. I would like to find somewhere that he could go perhaps just for a few hours in the mornings and then be home to do fun stuff together in the afternoons. That way Thijs would still have the opportunity to be around other children and I would still get the chance to work on some designs myself....some mommy/mummy time!!! I will keep you posted as to what we decide!

Blog hopping!
I had the opportunity to do a little blog hopping yesterday and I have to say there are some amazingly talented people out there. It's great to be able to leave comments on other's blogs don't you think? I was lucky this week to connect with two other fellow English ladies and check out their blogs.....very talented ladies too!

Thank you to those of you who have taken the time out of your very busy days to leave me a message. All messages are very much appreciated!! Keep them coming, it makes my day!!

Have a fabulous day!
