Evening all!

I have some very exciting news to share with you tonight!, I popped over to Sweet Stampin and I was the winner of this weeks spotlight competition! Thank you sooooo much ladies, I'm chuffed to bits. So it would of been rude not to enter this weeks comp, a great photo inspiration, so I hope my card fits the bill. I have used a lovely stamp from the Leanne Ellis range over at Sugar Nellie, I haven't inked her up for a very long time lol, and used some gorgeous papers from Craftwork Cards "Richie". The piccies look a bit grainy tonight, I blame the light lol!

This cutie is going into the following Challenges :-
Sweet Stampin # 51 ~ Photo Inspiration
Stamp Something ~ Fab Sketch
Totally Papercrafts # 41 ~ Tag it.......

Moon Beam ~ Leanne Ellis ~ Sugar Nellie

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments :o)

My oh my, did you watch the X-factor and Strictly last night?, Poor Anne was dragged around the floor again and Gavin with his snake hips ouch!!
And if Wagner doesn't go tonight I think I will just scream ( poor Elvis, must be turning in his grave lol), Cher wasn't very good as well as Mary and Katie. But Matt and Rebecca were phenomenal, amazing singers.

Right, off I trot to catch up with your blogs and to catch the results,

Have a lovely evening,

Debbie said...

Congrats Vicky, you deserve your win babe.
I was crying tonight when Jimmy cried on Strickly, what a shame. You have Anne on that show and then Wagner and Katie on the other, cannot believe the public vote the way they do, and I am so cross with Simon and Louise for not saveing Tracy, how could they!!
Your latest Leanne Ellis card is stunning, one of my all time favorite images, beautiful.
I hope to have a go at that sketch, but busy Scrapbooking commisions at the mo so no cards `till it's done. Debbiexx

Donna Mosley said...

Hi Vicky...Congratulations on winning Sweet Stampin`s challenge... You so deserve it hun. Love the card you`ve made tonight, as I do all of them. The colours complement each other lovely. Thanks for you comments on my cards again...means alot coming from you. The papers are from a fantastic site I found. There`s over 1600 papers and embellishments designed by a lovely lady called Summer...all downloadable for FREE. Took me a couple of days to download and save them all but it was well worth it. You will want them all like me,lol. There are some truly beautiful papers on her site,just the type you seem to like.I think she`s so generous to let us have them for nothing.In this day and age that`s rare.Hope you have a great week. Mark says hi :) Talk to you soon. Alison xxxx
