A little Sugar Nellie inspiration

Good morning Sugar lovers... did you have an enchanting Easter weekend??? 
I had the very much needed chance to spend some quality time with my hubby.... the weeks seem to fly by, and days spent together are far and few.
Before the weekend I managed to rustle up a cheery little number using a much loved Diane Duda image. This is "Believe

I used some Easter paper, and drew inspiration from them to colour this little lady up .
Using my spectrums 
Skin: FS4.5.6,TN2,3

Such a simple image, I think it didn't need any fuss, and just simple additions, like the sentiment,(which is from TLC) and a few pearls . I think the layout was from a sketch from the LOTV sketch page.
So, all thats left is to enter this in a few challenges...
1.Card mania - Fairies
2.Make my Monday - Distress It 
3.Robyn's Fetish - Square cards
4.Sweet stampin' - lots of layers
5.Sister Act -Anything goes
6.4 Crafty Girlz- Anything goes
thanks for joining me today... I hope I have given you a little inspiration too
Have a fabulously crafty day!

My Mum's Craft Shop Blog - Kraft

Hello my lovelies.... Good to see you up with the larks this morning ... hehe... 
I have a couple of posts coming up today, firstly my latest MMCS make for our theme of "Kraft" this week.

 This little cutie needs no intro really ... this is Wryn, from the pen of the very talented Christy Croll , creator of the divinely loveable Tiddly Inks images....
So, today Wryn is a "Beach Babe" , I have teamed her up with some digital  BoBunny summer papers called "Sun Kissed  " 
Wryn is colored with my Spectrum pens & pencils on Neenah desert storm cardstock. I LOVE this stuff!!!! 
Skin:FS4,5,6,TN2,3, pencils 2,3,5,6,9,
Outfit:TN6,GB5&3, 10,12,87,22,15,91
Background:pencils 64,68

 The sun die cut is from the new die-namics release.. "Sun Moon & stars", I added an extra circle of the DP and then the sentiment. The "Catch a wave" border is also from Die-namics , I cut 1 in kraft, then 1 in DP. I distressed everything with my Vintage photo DI pad, and matted the layers of kraft and Dp together, for a simple LO. Et voila!!!!

1.Artistic inspirations - Anything goes /CAS
