Sugar Nellie Search for "Sweeties"...

Hi friends! Today I have the most darling little card - it's a b-day card for my mother-in-law's 91st b-day on Oct. 4th. She's probably the coolest lady I know. And I'm so blessed to be part of her family! I found this adorable little stamp by Elizabeth Bell at Sugar Nellie's online store and thought she would be perfect with the Apple Cider DP my sweet friend, Sandy, gave me. I'd love to be on Sugar Nellie's Design Team...they're called "Sweeties"...and I think I'd be a great addition to their very talented design team so I'm going to give it a try! You can see the other fabulous entries here. And you can visit Sugar Nellie Stamps here. They're such fun!!

So here's my recipe:

Cardstock: Very Vanilla & Ruby Red by SU
DPs: Apple Cider by Imaginisce
Sentiments: Stamping Bella (front), JustRite Stamps (inside) w/Ruby Red ink (SU)
Roses: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon, baubles, & charm: my stash
Nestabilities dies & Cuttlebug
More mustard ink (SU) for edges of image
Copics: E13,11, 00, 000, 0000 (skin), E25, 99, 33, YR21 & 20 (hair), YR24, 23, 21, 20 (hat) Y17, 21, & YR 16 (flowers), G20, 24, 28 (leaves), R27, 24, 22, 20 (shirt & ribbon), R24, 22, 20, G20 & 24 (apples), B97, 95, 93, 91, 000, 0000 (overalls), E59, 55, 453, 50 (basket), & glossy accents on apples!

I hope you enjoy this sweet "little work of heart"...and do stop over at Sugar Nellie and check out some of their darling stamps!! Thanks so much for stopping by. See you soon...Pat
