Anyone For Simply Latte..........Thank You

Hello my dear friends how are you all doing? I hope you are all well. I've been busy with DT work but I've gave myself an hour off to make a quick card with a Sugar Nellie I already had coloured up. I've used one of the Simply Sassy range but its one I havnt used yet.....I'm still working my way through them lol. Mr postie has been nice to be yesterday & today & brought me 4 packages I ordered.......yes its compulsive to buy crafty stuff especially in the sales.....altho LOTV wasn't a sale actually the only sale I got was Sir Stamp-A-Lot lol & I got a big box of stuff from them.
Anyway onto my card I'm not sure what challenge this fits as I didnt really make it for any challenges it was just for fun......I brought new digi papers today its the 1st time I've used this store but I fell in love.....I will let you see for yourself.....
'Luv A Latte' Sugar Nellie from the Simply Sassy range. Hubby got me about 8 of these SS stamps for crimbo I've broke out my 3rd now woo hoo but I cant actually find this one in the store so instead I will just give you the link to the

She has been coloured with Copics I am soooo loving these if Promarkers did the finer softer nib like copics do they would be sooo much better these are fab for small areas where Promarkers can be somewhat thick altho I still like my promarkers.......better be quiet now cus I can hear them getting upset ssshhhh. It was about a week ago when I coloured this image so cant remember the colours unfortunately.

The 'Latte' stamp in the bottom corner is from 'Sir Stamp-A-Lot' which came yesterday I got it mainly to go with this stamp to be honest. The thankyou text is also a stamp from there. Now the papers apart from the 2 corners I've only used 2 papers then I added the 2 corners 2 buttons from my button jar with some pink & white Bakers Twine in which I got from here which also came today & then the 2 stamps. The papers are from Nitwit Collections & they are a package digi set called 'Affection Collection' which is just gorgeous & you dont just get papers....actually pop over & take a peekskie but be warned you may be tempted to buy a few sets cus you end up spoilt for choice!!!

Well thats it from me I will say goodnight as I'm off to bed. I would like to welcome my new followers, I will pop by to see you tomorrow. I'm so sorry today I am a bit behind with my commenting had a few appointments then had to go buy Jake some football boots for tomorrow of course he has seen some trainers as well so he is wanting them on Saturday lol.........I dont remember costing my parents this much money they certainly did not spend £50 on trainers for me.......if I had asked my dad for that....well I cant put on here what he would have said but I will give you an idea.....he was a geordie but living in Stoke-On-Trent & he was a winder for british coal working at Florence & Hem Heath coal you can imagine what sort of thing would of prob come out of his mouth lol. Anyway Jackanory here is away to bed but I promise to come visit each & everyone of you tomorrow morning once I've got Natalie off to is taking Jake at mo cus I've got a bad elbow so it hurts to drive at the min :0( apparently the doc says I've got tennis elbow.....I dont blooming play....its wayyyy too much exercise is he wise!!! So I've come to the conclusion its crafters elbow.......I had it last year & ended up having a rather large needle inserted into the elbow & the worst part was........would you believe....I got NO lollipop!!!! SHOCKING I know!!!
Well my lovelies I think I've bored you enough so I'm trotting off noo but thank you soooo much for stopping by you know how much I loves ya & appreciate you mmwah THANKYOU a billion times xxx

Hello there, Vicky,
Well, aren't yor cards just getting betterer and betterer?! I love it and your colouring is fabuliscious! In fact it's just an all round superduper card. I'm actually getting a bit sick of your fantastic creations, so from now on I might just pop by and say they're "not bad" or "ok"... but I'm not that jealous... TRULY! lol.

Take care, lovely lady!

LOVE this card, it's gorgeous!!! Those papers are fab but I daren't go over and look at the store cos I'll end up spending money I don't have!! Sorry to hear your elbow's hurting - if you do have to have another injection insist on the lollipop before they come anywhere near you with that needle - then you can suck it while they're injecting you - the sugar takes your mind off it!!! LOL!! Hugs, Marie xxx

angelwhispers said...

Wow Vicky that was a looooong post!!! But a veru enjoyable one I just love your stories I think that is we ever got to craft together we really wouldn't get much done!!!
