It's my Sugar Nellie Monday!!

Hello . . . and welcome once again to my little corner of Blogland!! It's Monday . . . and what's more, it's MY Monday! That's right . . . I have a fun new Sugar Nellie DT card to share with you all! But first I have to let you in on a little secret . . .Sugar Nellie has some new stamps coming out later this week! And the Sugar Nellie DT will be hosting a Blog Hop!! Check it out . . .  .

So, mark your calendars and set your alarm clocks for 11 a.m GMT (that's 6 a.m. EST)! You definitely won't want to miss out! We'll be having lots of fun . . . PLUS, there will be PRIZES!! I can't wait!!

Okey dokey . . .  back to my new Sugar Nellie DT project . . .
This fun and funky image is from the Leanne Ellis Collection of Sugar Nellie rubber stamps! This one's called "If Only" and is available HERE at Funky Kits. Here's a close-up . . .
Sooooo . . . rather than coloring this quirky image with my trusty Copic Sketch Markers, I decided to pull out my Tim Holtz Distress Inks! I've been having such fun playing with DIs after ignoring them for more than two years!! I certainly need lots of practice . . . but, I have to admit, I kinda like how this turned out! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
