Hey Sugar!

Here's a very simple card I made using the Look Who's Perky set from Paper Pretties. Isn't that the cutest little sugar bowl? I LOVE the sentiment because it reminds me of my grandma. She actually calls her little brother "Sugar" (in her Southern drawl). She has a nickname for everyone, so I've always known my Great Uncle Ray as "Sugar". She is from Pensacola, Florida and her brother and sisters still live there. It's actually about time I sent them all some more pictures of the kids. They'll LOVE this sentiment! :) Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Look Who's Perky (Paper Pretties); Paper- brown, patterned paper (Nana's Nursery Stack, DCWV), Very Vanilla (SU); Ink- Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip (SU); Accessories- Chocolate Chip satin ribbon (SU), brad (Making Memories), Aquapainter, white gel pen.

Shut up! You have family here? Pensacola is only one hour away from me. I think you have to go and visit your grandma's siblings. LOL
Your card looks wonderful! Your coloring is gorgeous as always. I love the layout and of course the colors you used.
Hugs and smiles

What an adorable card. I am laughing looking at the sentiment because my 2 year-old calls everyone "Suga" because of one of the teacher's at my son's preschool calls all the kids that.

Great card--love it!
