Congratulations Queen Susie! This card is for you my friend. I know how much you adore a step card, and frankly you're a master at creating them. Your terrific scenes tickle a Teapotter's heart and those who receive them as well. So, in your honor, I've created a step card with one of my favorite characters - Nana B! Queen Susie is full of sugar, and I'm sure a little spice too. Congratulations again. I hope you've enjoyed your reign.
I'm also entering this card into the WT450 Challenge - Show Me the Candy! Oh boy, can Nana B show you candy! She loves her some Sugar Babies!!
Poor Nana, she just can't seem to get her act together. She stopped by Sally's the other day to pick up some blueing for her hair and picked up Halloween sparkle instead (she really needs to get that eye fixed). Oh well she's a tough ol' bird - actually the bird was pretty tough when she turned the oven on to high, but not to worry she'll get it right next time - if she doesn't burn the house down. She's cookin' up a storm for the holidays. I believe it's her famous gingerbread designs.
Thanks for taking a peek.
Love ya with Sugar Babies on Top!
Nana B ~
