Wish I Could Grow Candy !!

On the other hand maybe that wouldn't be such a great idea as I'd probably end up putting on a lot of weight !!
Well I'm back with my second card of the day as promised and for this one I have used one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps which I just had to have when they had a discount over the bank holiay weekend. This little sweetie is called 'Candy Heart' and she is just the cutest little darling and is definitely my favourite rubber stamp. It's one of those stamps that you know will look fabulous in any colour combo, will work for any age and I think the candy 'flowers' are such a great idea. I coloured it with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and added some Stickles to the wings and candy. The background paper is from the Prima Botanicals collection and I used Marianne Creatable LR0200 to die cut the corner. In the other corner I added the little shape from Marianne Creatables LR0180 and I used QuicKutz nesting frame 9 to cut and layer the image. Finally I added lace, ribbon, butterflies and pearls from my stash.

and here's another one that shows the Stickles a bit better

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Sugar Bowl challenge  'Anything Goes with a Sugar Nellie image'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Rubber Stamp'
A Little Bit Crafty challenge 'Something Sweet' (my 2nd entry'
The Hobby House challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 3rd entry)
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Fantasy'
Passion for Promarkers challenge 'Ribbon, Lace or Twine'
I love Promarkers challenge 'Use Dies'
Marianne Design Divas challenge 'Get Your Dies Out'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Dies, Dies, Dies'

I'm off now to sort out my clothes - hmm do I pack sandals or wellies ??
Thanks for taking the time to look at my card and for all your lovely comments. I really do appreciate it and I'll catch up with you when we get home in a weeks time.
