Look what I caught!


I read an interesting blog post from Squirrel about the fact that people are liking her cards on Facebook but then not hopping over to her blog to leave comments and how to deal with that. I network my posts to Facebook but I do notice that some people who press like on Facebook don't then leave a blog comment so I thought I would try a Peek of my card appearing rather than the whole card and hopefully that will encourage more visitors to leave comments on here. I do realise of course they will not all be on blogger and able to leave comments and I appreciate every like too.


So time for another anything Sugar Nellie goes at The Sugar Bowl and I have used a stamp which I bought ages ago, inked up and then never coloured. Lovely clean lines for this card with minimal embellishments.
Medium - Copics
Papers - Papermania Ahoy There
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Other - twine, fish charm

Challenges
Southern Girls Patterned paper 
Bizzy Becs anything goes
Simon Says anything goes 
Penny's use your stash (everything on this card has been in my stash for ages)

Great card Marianne, lovely bright and cheerful design.
I prefer to comment on blogs, I don't like facebook much especially as someone set up another impostor account in my name last night - don't know why they always pick on me!
