2nd Project for Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy WOW Competition

Hi peeps first I want to thank you for your kind comments some have had me welling up I tell ya, they really do mean sooo much.
This is my 2nd project I made last night but things hadn't dried properly, the darn bow did not want to stay on but I won the battle in the end!!!!
This is for my Princess Natalie altho its also based around round 1 of the Sugar Nellie Competition.
Without any waffle here it is........
I know I have used the same image but when I first coloured these images yesterday I couldn't decide what to colour them with so I coloured both & I thought with the help of my family I will choose the best 1....yeah right my family loved them both. So thats why its the same image. I'm not even sure if you can enter more than once but if not they can disregard 1. I have not made this christmassy as its a keeper for in her room.
A close-up of Simply Sassy 'Fairytale'.....who is my fave I have to say....for now anyway lol.

This image is coloured with Promarkers except her hair which was coloured with Prisma pencils & blended with Sansador, I've used no ink on the hair. I have even given her a little earring in a heart shaped gem.

This is made the same as the 1 yesterday, with my Marianne die, I then heat embossed it with Heat It Up clear embossing powder....I did it twice on the front & once on the back the feel of it is lush, I also did the same to the Magnolia doo hickey flower underneath the mulberry 1. I added gems to her body cus she is a she lol & I trimmed down the feelers to added the gems thingy's (not sure of the name of them lol sorry). I will be making more of these I actually made another 1 with different embossing powder but it didnt look white so it may go on my next project along with the matching flower I made lol.
Now I dont if you have realised this is not a card, I didn't exactly make it clear did I oops....well its actually a box I made to Put Natalie's new DVDs in, will have to make a few more tho before crimbo lol, but it saves on wrapping lol. I didn't bother looking for a tutorial for this like I sometimes do instead I was in a crafty mood so made my own. I'm just putting finishing touches to my instructions & I've got to convert measurements cus I know everyone doesn't use the MS scoring board. It will be done in the next day or 2 tho. I have put in 1 of Natalie's fave old dvds, its 1 we always watch together I soooo enjoy it, its a girly thing with my daughter lol. I cant put crimbo prezzies on now can I not yet lol.

I am sooo sorry about the pics tonight I've had a real job of taking them for some reason.....but you get the idea dont you lol. These will also fit Xbox 360 games in as well as I'm gonna make a few for the boys, not got time to do them all tho....Jake has had 17 on his list I managed to get 13 & his nana has got him 2. I work it where every other year they get really spoilt...this is that year...damn it lol.

Not forgetting the tag that I attached on the side from my Magnolia doo hickey. I hand wrote on the front cus
I thought it would be more personal.
Not forgetting the prize for 1st of course......

Materials used & links.... (sorry I forgot last night oops, my bad)
'Fairytale' Sugar Nellie from of course Funky Kits ( my hubby has put in an order here but I'm not allowed to know what for as its to go to Santie lol.
Tag & base on flower - Magnolia Doo Hickey dies from Bunny Zoes
Mulberry white flower from Wild Orchid
Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
Gems are from my stash & the embossed card was embossed using the 'Dots' cuttlebug folder & the 'Butterfly' folder which is so pretty. I used Spellbinders Eyelet Square nestie for the image.
Well thats it from me I hope you like this that I made, I hope Natalie likes it too, need to make some pretty pink ones now for her. My new toy did not arrive today :0( but the snow up here is still quite bad fortunately the roads in most places are better so hopefully it will come tomorrow, I already have the nestie for it that came the other day but the shop where I was getting the Calibur from let me down grrrrr so I went to Cuddly Buddly & ordered it from there.
I'm off for a cuppa now then hopefully some hopping then maybe more crafting lol....will see if that works out lol.
Thank you for stopping by I love your comments they brighten my day thank you so much.
Hugs to you all.

Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Competition......WOW....

Good evening peeps actually I should say good morning as its nearly 12.30.....but I always say its not another day until I've been to bed & had some sleep lol. Anyway I'm very late tonight 2 reasons, 1 is because I was actually posting 2 projects but there are a few things that are not dry so I will be back tomorrow with that 1. 2ndly I am late because I've ummed & arred & arrrred & ummed about entering the Sugar Nellie competition WOW Simply Sassy....I think most of us have heard about it havn't we lol.
I initially saw the comp & thought I might like a go so I ordered some stamps I only got 3 as the rest are on my crimbo list, anyway they arrived yesterday. So I had a play late last night colouring 1 I was sooo happy with it then somehow an ink sponge got onto the image.....well you can picture the rest cant you.... arrrgggghhh!!!! I was in a stormer of a mood yesterday morning when I found it & it wasn't until this morning when I thought I would give it another go....well I saw as an omen & that it was a sign telling me I should not enter..........after all have you seen the talented girlies that have entered.... I adore Sugar Nellie it was actually a SN stamp that I first brought when I begun stamping & when these new ones came out I knew I would have them eventually lol......just thought I would wait til crimbo lol........then again.....
Anyway the competition prize is this....

Also runner up gets their choice of 12 stamps.....isn't that amazing!! Now I'm gonna be honest I'm really not bothered about the prizes, I have the Grand Calibur on its way (plz let it be ere tomorrow) hubby got it me as early crimbo prez. Anyway there is a chance to be on the DT....well that would be 1 of my dreams come true.....I have 3 stamp companies that I truly love & 1 digi company these are my dreams to be good enough 1 day to get on their DTs. Sugar Nellie, Magnolia, Sweet Pea stamps & not forgetting Kenny K. Sugar Nellie was my 1st love so it is number 1 tbh. They are wanting white-on-white, well I've only done white once & I hated it, me & white dont see eye to it is anyway. Oh I have used the VERY beautiful & 1 of my faves 'Fairytale' Sassy...she is an absolute dream to colour!!!!

Finally here she is close-up....

I used Copic & then mainly prisma for her hair, copics for her skin & promarkers for her clothes & she was stamped on LOTV smooth stamping card. I did 2 images the other 1 will be along tomorrow, she is the same but with different ink & dif colour.....just to show a bit of variation. Now I know I may not deserve to be on the team I know there is sooo much talent out there.....but I will keep on practicing until my colouring is as brilliant as others & maybe 1 day my dreams may be fulfilled.....or at least 1!!!
Anyway I'm droaning on now.....its cus I'm so blinking nervous.....
Get yourself over to Sugar Nellie & have a peekskie at the competition, get yourself some of the most gorgeous stamps which you can get here & join in the competition.....what have you got to lose.....except your hair going grey throught being that nervous...or is that just me????
Thank you sooo much for listening to me waffle more importantly thank you for popping in to look at my creation I really do value your comments & love reading all totally rock!!!!!
Hugs to all, take care where ever you are.
