Afternoon all!

Well I'm back from Scotland and I had a fabulous time and the weather was gorgeous!. Edinburgh Castle is simply amazing and the scenery was stunning :o)
The traffic was very heavy due to the Pope arriving yesterday, so a little detour around Livingstone was a treat and everyone was just soooo friendly!, must go back for a longer visit soon with hubby and it was just an hour flight from London City airport!!!
Anyway, enough waffling about my trip, today's card is going into a couple of challenges and I have given in and entering into the Sugar Bowl DT Call, so fingers crossed. Must say Sugar Nellie stamps are simply my favourites (You might of realised that by now cause every other card is a SN stamp lol!) So I inked up one of my favourite stamps Winter Wonderland ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

This cutie is going into the following challenges :-
The Sugar Bowl ~ DT Call
Crafty Catz # 50 ~ Colour combo Chocolate & Green
A spoon full of Sugar # 121 ~ Full into Autumn
Cute Card Thursday # 130 ~ Tweet & Flutter

Winter Wonderland ~ Sugar Nellie ~ Funkykits

Nice one Vicky. If I was judging the SN DT I would give you the DT spot. I have this image and I love it too. Wondered if you had the same girl but in a coat just walking (wintery coat?)
If not would you like some stamping?
This card is super. Debbiexx

hi there, I have also dropped by to say that this will be my final visit to your blog for at least a few months, I am going abroad to get married, and coming back to moving house, settling down before I can come back online. I appreciate your kind comments and your visits to my blog, I will try to update it from time to time, but I can not promise. I will miss blogland, take care and catch up soon, from me - wondering if anyone will miss me in blogland...
