Life Happens


Hello !!! Hope this finds you all doing well. Today I have another Sugar Nellie card to show you from the new release over at Funky Kits. Simply Sassy set 3 is available now and I do hope you have yours ordered for you know these go fast. Today I have used Fashionista and Laid Back Dude on my card.  They have been colored with my copic’s and these pretty papers are from The Paper Studio.  Punches I used are from SU. And I used one of my new spellbinder dies.  I am not for sure of my sentiment. I have forgotten where it is from sorry.


Oh and I had a blast making this lantern that I saw on the lovely and talented Norma’s Blog. This girl ROCKS !!!

I had some trouble with my roof only because I was so tired but the directions were really awesome. I am telling you this lady is so talented.

I used the Snowman from Magnolia and some MS and SU punches , some flower soft for this fur and lots and lots of twinklets for the snow lol And boy that was fun cleaning that up, I had that stuff every where lol

The sentiment stamp is one I got from Sandra’s Blog, you all need to check her blog out, Such great sentiments. I love these.


Here is a side view of the lantern. My grandson saw this when I got it finished and asked if he could have it. I was really shocked for he never wants anything like this but he is going to fill it with candy and don’t ask me who he is going to give it too lol Just glad he liked it.

  1. So wonderful Donalda,I love the images and the colours.
    So gorgeous papers.

    Hugs Riet.x

  2. Oh fabulous card, love the cute images and the lantern is stunning.

  3. Your little tale about your grandson really made me smile - how delightful & what a compliment. It is a beauty. We have frozen treachery - staying home time - the thawed snow from yesterday froze overnight & the wild birds couldn't even wait for me to go back inside when I put some food out for them. Hope your day back at work is OK - Take care
    Much love

  4. oops - as to Miss Sassy - love that sentiment as it is so true & the expression on his face just says it all. Her platform shoes are rather fun.
