Sweet Sugar Caddy.... For A Very Special Lady...

Edited To Add ~ Sorry I've not been by this week guys I'm full of cold and feeling really rotten.. promise I'll be by really soon...thank you so much for your lovely comments.. they really do make me smile and i really do need it at the moment... I'll make up for it with some Yummy Candy next week..

I decided not to join in any challenges for todays post, but thought you might like to see a special gift I've created... it is for a special friend, can't say who as then they'll know...Duhhhhh

I am hoping that she will love this Sweet Sugar Caddy i created for her.... it's full of stash, which i also can't show you, but i will when she has it..LOL is there any point to me writing this...hehehe

I did an awful lot of distressing on this, but don't know if i went a little too far... Don't you just love these colours together... they are so yummy... I started with this sweet Sugar Nellie image and coloured it using SU inks... i am so in love with these inks.. they are the best when working with water colour paper.. this is actually the first time I've used this main image...shame on me....(slap the back of my hands..) but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.. i had to crop it a little, but managed to keep the main part of the image.. I used some old papers from my stash.. they're Prima... as are the hydrangeas... the buttons in the center of the flowers are Making Memories and the ribbons are from my stash...ooooh the wooden scroll is Kaiser i think...I'm almost positive... the pins which i just love are also from some recent stash hubby got me..(DID YOU SEE THE NEW NESTABILITY DESIGNS ~ SORRY I KNOW I'M GOING OFF SUBJECT THEY ARE SO YUMMY) Well that's all for now... I'm not quite sure how this will read as I'm scheduling this incredibly late on Sunday ready for midweek.... sorry if it doesn't make sense..I'm feeling a bit fuzzy...LOL Off to bed for me.. Night Night Sleep Tight (Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite)

Ingredients: Tin Maya Road ~ Papers Prima ~ Flowers Prima ~ Ribbons & Lace From Stash ~ Wooden Scrolls Kaiser ~ Images Sweet Sugar Nellies ~ Buttons Making Memories ~ Pins & Charms From Stash..

I see these stamps that I 'must' have and then I wait for that 'perfect' time to ink them up oh so reverently - lol. I'm sure your friend will be very honoured to receive this special gift.
