Another Sugar Nellie....

I was asked if I could made a special birthday card for someone. They asked me to make a really elaborate, fancy card and told me her favourite colour was blue. Here's what I came up with.....
The stamp is by Sugar Nellie, coloured with Promarkers. Papers are by Colorbok - I added pearls to the swirls on the paper. Tiny butterflies are Martha Stewart and liquid pearls. A scrap of vintage lace, and some blue lace by Rusty Pickle. Base card and sentiment circle is Craftwork Cards and measures 6 x 6. I used one felt, and two paper flowers, all made with the rolled rose Dinamics die from MFT




I have a brand new fancy phone. My old contract was up, and I renegotiated with my service provider, part of the deal was a smart phone - not an iPhone, but a HTC Desire. I have been fiddling around with it for days. I have wanted a smart phone for ages, I suffered from swipe envy when I saw them being used. So now I have the local weather which pops up - if it's raining outside some cute little windscreen wipers start up - and a lot of apps, most of which I will never use, I know how to access the internet, my address book is ready to go. Just one problem. How do I make a call? I haven't a clue. As for texting......it's all a huge mystery. I feel quite nostalgic for my old phone which was super-easy to use, but there again, I must be thankful for small mercies, I couldn't play angry birds on my old one. I predict quite confidently that one of these days they are going to make a phone which will cook your dinner and wash the floor in between answering your calls for you.

  6. Hi Enfys that card is stunning I love the flowers to. My hubby bought me a Wildfire and I just couldnt get on with it, it kept running away from me, so we decided to swop it for a Blackberry and I find it a lot easier to use thank goodness. No on screen keyboard. With hugs Shirleyxxx

  9. Hey En, I must live a sheltered life, I've never seen liquid pearls before! Please tell me who makes it, and can I get it over here? It sure is nicer than adding several pearls on these little tiny butterflies. I do love this card, It's so.... blue! And just gorgeous!I looked at it up close, and your coloring is just fabulous! Great job En!

  19. Beautiful card, such lovely shades. I'm glad to see you too are getting to grips with modern technology. I only want a phone to text and make calls, I'll be lost when I have to get a new one.

  20. This card is beautiful, they are going to love it.
    As for that phone, I'm chicken and don't have anything fancy like that. I just have a flip phone that calls and texts. Oh and it does take pictures, but I hardly ever do that. I'm not good with those little techy things.
    Good luck learning it all. And the phone does make your dinner if you want, all you have to do is look up a local restaurant that delivers and make the call. LOL!

  21. Beautiful card! I love the added pearls, Enfys. And I am LOL over your phone - I went through the same thing but now it's "easy" to use.

  23. I love your card Enfys, the flowers are gorgeous, and so is your coloring. I only have one question, why do you have to press send to answer a call? Did someone mistake the ok and send buttons and decide it would cost 1/1000000000 of a cent to correct? Have fun with your new phone, sounds fab! ~Diane
