Last Hurrah for Sugar Nellie Challenge

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

I had my first physiotherapy session this morning which went very well. No new exercises for my elbow but I have to do the two I've already got a lot more often. He also said I can start using my hand to do little things, so I might have a go at finger painting :D

Sadly the title of my blog post today is not the title of my card, but is due to the fact that the Sugar Nellie blog challenge is ending.

Today would have been the start of a new challenge but the co-ordinator has taken the hard decision to close it down. The closing date of the current challenge is a week later than normal to allow people one last chance to get an entry in (now closes 1/9/2016 just before midnight).

The prizes have been doubled so dig out your beloved Gorjuss/Sugar Nellie stamps and ink them up. You can use any stamp/image from Funky Kits -  the home of Sugar Nellie.

For my no-longer-needed inspiration card I've coloured in 'I gave you my heart' with a mix of Promarkers and Graph'Its, and layered it on papers from the 'Vintage Charm' 12x12 pad from My Minds Eye. I also die-cut some flowers from the papers using Leonie's Floral Bursts mixed media dies. The sentiment is from the Handwritten Phrases set by Lili of the Valley and I've tinted the edges of the papers with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafty Sentiment Designs - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp (Wed) It’s Hip To Be Square
Crafty Friends Challenge #38 Anything Goes
Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog  #26 colour

Thanks for stopping by,
