Custard from Sugar Nellie

This is the first of two posts tonight - or rather two cards. I have not been up to much today - just food shopping with a bit of help from Lynne - pushing a trolley is SO hard when your arms won't move as you want them! Using Custard from Sugar Nellie, I made this easel card to send to my dear old Mam up in Scotland - I try to send her a different card each week so she must have a helluva stash of them by now. Most of them I don't write in so she can use it herself if she wants! (I do write but I put in paper, silly!).

It is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge No 39 - theme Blue.
Custard coloured with Promarkers~
Cool Gre 1, 2, 3 & 4;

Apple for grass and a touch of cornflower for flowers;
Raffia for bows.


  1. I think that is a fantastic idea.
    I gave my mum a box of cards last year and she said you have not writen on them, No i said they are for you to use. She was thrilled, she loved the fact she could give something I made away to friends, and thats what your mum will do. How lovely.
    Where in Scotland does she live?
    I go to Glasgow Christmas shopping with my friend every year (this November will be our 16th year), love it up there. Debbiexx
