Sugar Nellie - Waiting For You

- Happy New Year Sugar Fans -
I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year. To celebrate Christmas I travelled to London to stay with my gorgeous daughter because she couldn't come home due to work commitments, and my hubbie had to work all over Christmas period (he works away from home). Unfortunately it wasn't a great Christmas for me (sob!) because I contacted the flu on Christmas Eve and was ill all over the festive period and I'm still not over it completely. Blah!!
Anyway enough of my sad's the first Wednesday in the New Year and my turn to share a Sugar Nellie card with you. For my CAS card this week I used one of the Furry Friends digi stamps called 'Waiting For You', it's available to buy from Funkykits. Definitely check them out as there's quite a few characters in the collection and include cats, dogs, rabbits etc and they're all very cute. To create my card I used a Kraft card base, Kraft card and pencils to colour this little sweetheart in with.

Here's What I Did
I used a 5" x 5" Kraft card base. I printed my image and sentiment directly onto a sheet of Kraft card and die cut it into a square. The image was coloured using a mixture of pencils. The completed picture was matted and layered onto some cream card and added to my card base using foam tape to give a little extra dimension.

To finish off I added glitter to the balloon, white pen on the bear's face and balloon for highlights, and a few die cut hearts.

That bear is so gorgeously fluffy and looks so forlorn, I just want to give him a big hug. Your colouring on Kraft is stunning and the teeny die cut hearts look really cute :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
