Sugar Nellie Fleur

Hello my lovelies, l am pleased to say the internet provider changeover went very well and thus far we have not had any problems.  I have had a play with one of the Sugar Nellie stamps l bought last week - 2 down 6 to go.  I am also trying to use my dies more often as they have been very neglected :( l have also been trying to tidy/sort my paper stash and l have to say l am ashamed of the amount of papers l have - l reckon l have a rain forest in my craft room, certainly enough for my lifetime and there is me planning on which new LOTV packs l am going to buy, l think one is the answer to that x. You may have noticed l have been decorating the inside of my cards lately - now you know why, l really must use some up instead of stroking it all.

Fabulous, love these girls. such a sweet and pretty card. I use my dies a lot but I know what you mean about paper. I could paper our house I think. I have been looking at the new LOTV ones too oh dear!

Gorgeous peachy colours, Susan. Love the layout and that fabulous image.

Love the colours of this one Susan and those stamps really look lovely!! I am most definitely not buying any more paper as I've just bought a load of digi ones from the Jessica Sprague website...oops!! It will be better when we can get out in the garden...won't it?!! xx

Sue said...

So gorgeous Susan, I love the sweet image and beautiful papers. I know what you mean about papers, the trouble is these companies keep on bringing out new ones to tempt us with!

Beautiful card Susan. I know what you mean about the papers. I am terrible for by pads, using a few pieces then I see something else. I could seriously do with going on a paper ban until I have used some of my stash up! But, I know I wouldn't stick to it. Sue x

Another sweetheart of a stamp, and I'm loving these dies. That CL flourish is so versatile. Your coloring is perfect as always, and you always have the interiors decorated so beautifully too. I'm with you on the papers. Bought a few more 6x6 pads today. Had a coupon, had to spend it on Something!! TFS & hugs

Loving your card .. .. lovely colour choice!
