A Long Post

Hello my dear friends!!! How is everyone doing after the Big Holiday?? Getting ready for the New Year?? Me I don't celebrate the New Year only because I can't stay up that late lol I get up at 3am to go to work so I am long asleep by then lol
I wanted to show you a few challenges I have done, I have not been online much so far this week and just had not posted anything so figured I had better get busy and write this up before it came a book lol
First I have a card made for my cousin's wife, She is just the sweetest person and I just love her to death. I have used the sketch by Dawny over at Papertake Weekly and have used one of my Manga girls from Sugar Nellie. I colored her with my copic's and my papers are from BoBunny.
I used punches from SU for my Simon Says Stamp wording and then my new MS border punch.
And these GORGEOUS flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I just so love these flowers I so hope you all have went and got you some you can't beat the price for these beauties especially for all you get.

Here is another one of the Manga girls from Sugar Nellie, I soooooo love these stamps. I have used the sketch over at Mojo Monday to make this notepad it is a gift for my cousin's wife to go along with the card above. All items are the same as above put also used a spellbinder tag.

This is a card I made with one of the new Sugar Nellie stamps from the baby collection she is called Caitlyn isn't she adorable?? I have used the sketch over at A Spoonful of Sugar for this card. I used papers from My Minds Eye and have colored her with my copic's. Added some buttons from my stash.

Now this cutie is Heather she is from Sugar Nellie's Sugar and Spice collection. I so enjoyed coloring her with my copic's these images are so easy to color in and shade.
I have used the Mind's Eye collection again on this so love the papers. This sketch I used is from the Sunday's Sketch and Stamp Challenge. I have used some Prima flowers that I got from a dear friend for Christmas with brads and spacers in the center, and some raffia ribbon and added some bling from my stash.

Oh and look at this cutie, this is the vintage baby from Sugar Nellie , oh just so precious laying there. Reminds me I have to baby sit tomorrow sure hope that baby of mine is this good lol Nathaniel is at the age 10 months where he is into everything lol
I have used papers from BG and have used my copic's again (as always) The wording is from Verve Stamps, I just knew when I saw this I had the perfect image for it. I have used my sizzix die for the stars and have used pop dots under them. This sketch is from Create 4 Fun Challenge.

Now here is another beauty from the Sugar and Spice collection over at Sugar Nellie her name is Elise. My picture never took very well here because of the acetate, I have tried several times but just not getting a good one so only took 1 view. I used the acetate box tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers and have added some Reese's cups to the inside.

Well if you made it to the bottom of this post thanks so much for sticking it out lol I am so sorry I just hadn't posted some of these earlier.
Hope you all have a great week and be safe and have a Happy New Year if I don't make it back before then.
