Stamp Something Sugar Nellie

Hello everyone, I feel like I haven't blogged for ages, it's only been a couple of days and I have been reading what evertone has been up to but just not had anything to post. I have been busy with design team stuff but now I have it all done, I have the weekend to play, yay.
So last night I made a card for Stamp Something challenge with one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps.
I took the pic in my bathroom lol because I didn't want to go out in the rain to take a pic, and it's the brightest place in the house, but not much room and I have to put the card on my tiny thin window cill and it always falls off just as I click the camera which is why a bit of the top is cut off lol. I couldn't be bothered taking another 20 pics to get it right so just left it like that. I will never get a job as a photographer but I'm sure you lot don't mind, do ya?
Anyway onto the card, the stamp is not a new one (as in new release) but it reminded me so much of my little girls that I had to get it. They are always feeding their teddies and dollys pretend .... so cute :)
All the papers are Basic Grey, 2 are from the Porcelain pad and the one I used for the backing is from the Gypsy collection and is called Migration. I didn't cut the bottom strip off that one, or else I would have no idea what it was called lol.
I have inked the edges of all my papers and also the base card and image with some pink ink, got a bit carried away again!
My flowers are made with the nestie classic scalloped circle (smallest one) with some scraps of one of the papers I used, and on top of that are pretty pink flowers I won in Lorraines candy, then a little rose. The pretty little branches are ones that Heather so kindly sent me, thanks hun I love these and the other ones you sent too :)
And finally some lace from my stash.
I really like the flowers made with my nestabilities. I don't have any flower punches except 2 tiny wee ones so these do the job nicely and you can match the paper you are using perfectly. I have been making these a lot lately but don't think I have posted any before this, they are all on my DT cards for next week, so sorry you will be seeing them a lot.
I'm off to make some more cards now. Hope you are all having a great weekend :)
Oh before I go, if you are still reading this novel I have just wrote, remember it's my challenge this week over at the Digital Tuesday Challenge and I would love if some of you could join in. All you have to do is decorate or make a bag or a box and add something digital, even just a sentiment if you like. Don't think many people have entered this week, so pwetty please join in if you can. I will be forever gratefull lol and you could win a digi set of your choice from My Grafico for your efforts :)

Hugs Lora xx
