U is for.........


This week on ABC is "U is for Underneath",. I have used my new Sugarnellie stamp "a good book" available from Funkykits designed by Elizabeth Bell. I absolutely love this stamp, to be honest I love all my Sugar Nellie stamps. They can be adapted for so many occasions! They are great to colour and the quality is second to none. I really didn't know what I was going to make for this one "U" and then it came to me last night, yes last night (I couldn't sleep) I have been so behind with everything at the moment. I knew instantly I wanted to use this stamp and this theme. Are their "Fairies at the bottom of your Garden" as a child I used think that fairies were at the bottom of my dads garden. He is a fabulous gardener and he grows the most amazing veggies. Anyway if you haven't been for a look at my fellow DT creations then get yourself over and have look. Well everything seems to be all go at the moment with crimbo on our doorsteps, not as much time for blogging etc. I will not be starting another post with I'm Sorry, life, family comes first we are all in the same boat and you all must admit we will all be here when things slow down again. If I don't blog for a couple of days over the festive season, well lets face it it's not the end of the world. Thank you for stopping by, hope you have a fab day!

Stunning card Alison. In fact all your latest cards have the wow! factor. I have been catching up on the posts I have missed whilst life got in the way lately and I am seriously impressed - fab inspiration my friend.
I haven't succumbed to the Sugar Nellie craze as yet but your cards are enough to really tempt me to try some. :)

Such a beautiful card Alison, I love your Sugar Nellie stamp too and you've coloured her so beautifully! Wonderful colour scheme and details. I totally agree about the blogging ethos, I don't think anyone should have to apologise for not blogging either, life is too hectic for that. Take care and have a good week. Chris x
