Goodbye UKS.......

This is the first card I have seen made with the new stamps from Leanne, this character is called Annie and I think you must like her :) shes so sweet and Gayle has made a lovely card here for her friend, see Gayle's blog as she has some Sugar Bowl news.


Sugar Nellie was conceived and born on the UKS forum, born of the frustration at having to work with a poor stamp supplier.

We received an amazing amount of support in all shapes and forms from girls who knew that we were a small company, but supported us and with that we were able to grow and this has been our story so far, just the first chapter.

Funkykits will end its sponsorship of UKS at the end of this year, they has been a sponsor since before Sugar Nellie came along and because they have the only licence to sell online, they themselves have grown in a time when many online craft stores are cutting prices in order to hold there heads above water, many have already called it a day, FK have become stronger and we are both looking ahead to 2009 with some exciting news and changes.

There was a boom in small stamp companies in 2009, some much smaller that others but as time moves on I notice that the good are getting better and those who did not quite give the stampers the quality or service they can expect in a time when customer is Queen, have begun to fall by the wayside, it is sad to put your heart into something that does not work but the key word there is HEART, if you do it for love, it has far more chance of working for you, if you do it for a quick buck because it's the fashion you are loosing out before you begun.

Together, Sugar Nellie & Funkykits, have found a new place, where the grass is greener, the field is bigger and there are so many new faces for you to get to know, share, learn and hopefully make new friends. I am hoping you join in with faces old and new, and get to know myself and the team at Sugar Nellie a little bit better.

2009 sees Sugar Nellie become a Member Company of Split Coast Stampers

I would like to thank all the sugar babes who live on UKS for all the support which has been amazing and ask them to join us on SCS. Load up you gallery with your beautiful cards and lets show the world what sweet little stamps we have here at Sugar Nellie.

We will be on SCS in the new year. Just in time to show off our Gorjuss Girls :)

And two from Tiets, Snowflake and Rope Swing, both from the new Sweet Art Ebony range by Elisabeth Bell, aint they grand? Thank you Tiets:)

SCS is a favourite of mine, so this makes me happy! I haven't posted there much of late, but am planning on being much more active both on my blog and various forums in the New Year!

It has been a pleasure to see Sugar Nellie and FunkyKits grow over the last year, and personally I think the stamp designs are just going from strength to strength.

It looks like I'll be uploading a lot of Sugar Nellie cards to my SCS gallery in the New Year, as my blog candy package arrived on Friday, thank you! I've been very good and wrapped it back up after a quick peek, so it is sitting under the tree ready for me to play after Christmas Day! Not only that, but I'm pretty sure the stamps on my Christmas list are sitting under the tree too... *grin*
