Little Artist


Well.. the weather has been awfull,
spitting with rain all day and some pretty heavy showers this afternoon! 
Yuk… so dull and grey!

I did cheer myself up by doing some colouring..
including this little cutie from the Homegrown range by SUGAR NELLIE

Talk about SN, I was so happy to receive the new Leanne Ellis stamps a few days ago and this new series is fab!
You will see some cards with the new series here on my blog real soon 🙂


For my card I have used the lastest sketch by the SKETCH SATURDAY challenge blog. 

Now… I didn’t want to miss the challenge at BASIC GREY as this week it is


They would like your creations to be inspired by your favorite icecream flavour
and are encouraged to let your immagination run wild!! lol 
My alltime favorite icecream is Toffee [1 scoop] & Pistachio [2 scoops]
Mmmmmmm, can’t wait for summer days with the thought of that!! LOL

Card Ingredients:

  • Stamp: Little Artist by Sugar Nellie [incl. sentiment]
  • Medium: Copics
  • Paper: BG Archaic
  • Tools: Nesties, star punches, MS zigzag border punch
  • Embellishments: Blingdots

Thanks to SS & BG for the inspiration..
Have a wonderful evening all!

Hugs, Marlene x

    Isn’t it interesting finding out about people’s icecream fav’s….yours is very sweet!! bx

  • Zoe

    Hello Marlene, I love the saying and I love the sweet boy.

  • Jo Nevill

    Fabulous card Marlene, your ice cream sounds delish although I would leave out the nut one because I’m very allergic to them ! The image you have used is absolutely gorgeous and I think I might have to invest in that little beauty. So when you buy the stamp, the sentiment comes with it too, am I right ?

    Thank you for joining us with your yummy creation at BasicGrey Challenges this week,
