Carnival time has arrived
Roll up, roll up and join the Carnival ride.
Today we are showcasing the new range of stamps from the wonderful Scottish company
 Sugar Nellie.
All stamps featured will be available at Funky Kits this weekend,
Karen, Kate and "Funkykitsman" have been working flat out
to get all this lovely rubberness ready for ya'll.
And yummy it is too.

If you have arrived to me from Michele's blog you are in the right place,
 if not you'll need to start with Sugar Nellie, and Tiets is the first to showcase.
The image I am sharing with you today is called
"The Best Gift is You",
 and although I am showcasing it as a Christmas card it could easily be altered for a Birthday card or really any other card that you are sending with a gift...so a great all rounder!


I have used:
Papers:  My Minds Eye Be Merry Oh Christmas tree, Snowball fun and Twas the Night before Christmas.
Spellbinder Nestabilities:  Labels 14.
Stamps:  The Best Gift is You, Sugar Nellie and Sentiment by Paper Artsy.
Twill and pearls from stash, coloured with copic pens and Distress ink Vintage Photo.

Thanks for popping on over to my little blog and checking out the new designs,
next on the Carnival hop is the
lovely Kiki,
enjoy and don't forget your pop-corn!
Mine is popping in the microwave as we speak!
More lovely rubberness for you tomorrow too,
I'd love to know if you've picked out a favourite already?!
Happy crafting. x

Paula said...

Not managed to pick a favourite yet.......but I do like the way this can be used around the year according to what embellishments are placed with it. Love your trees & the way you've used pink & blue with the more traditional seasonal colours.
Thanks for all your hard work.
