Oops . . .

Happy Monday, my sweet friends! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was filled with live jazz music (we went to a Jazz festival) and hanging out with my sweet hubby! We won't even mention the rain or the fact that there were no public restrooms . . . just creepy porta-potties! Ugh!! Now that you have that mental image burned into your brain . . . . Aaacck!!! Let's move on, shall we?!

So . . . guess what? It's August and I haven't even started on my Christmas cards! And today's Sugar Nellie DT project won't qualify as a Christmas card either! hehe! I'm still in a "Summer" frame of mind, I guess!
For today's card, I used one of my favorite Sugar Nellie stamps! I just realized, I say that a LOT! They're ALL my faves, I think! hehe! But I have always been especially fond of "Honey Pip." She's from the Sherbet Pip Collection of Home Grown Sugar Nellie Stamps . . . and is available HERE at Funky Kits.
This card is a belated birthday card . . . I made it for my art teacher whose birthday was last week! Aacck! Shame on me!! But I bet she'll like this . . . even tho it's a little late! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
My card "recipe" . . .

And . . . that's it for me, my darlins! Oh, wait . . . I've decided to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my latest Sugar Nellie DT card! And, as always, thanks so much for your very sweet comments! Until next time . . . hugs!!
