Who is in the first ever Sugar Nellie Spotlight?

Ok, i thought that it would be nice to try something new here on the Sugar Nellie blog so welcome to the very first Sugar Nellie Spotlight. I had a biiiiiiiiiig mooooch around ALOT of your blogs and finally decided that the first ever Sugar Nellie Spotlight will be on ......

drumroll ....

Bernie!!! So now, i would like you all to "meet" Bernie!!!!!

I asked Bernie to tell us all a few facts about herself ( lets face it - we are all nosy aren't we!! ), this is what she has to say .......

"I am a forty-something SAHW, married to Colin. Having no children means I can (and do!!) indulge in my creatie passion and when I'm not crafting I'm planning my next trip away ... next stop Florence!!

I enjoy teaching crafts, and have 3 different groups that I love to share techniques and tips with. I believe I get my crafty genes from my granny and enjoyed many happy crafty hours with her. I’ve been “fiddling” with cardmaking for approx 7 years now, but I wouldn’t like to show you any “creations” from yonder years!! Lol My all time favourite is rubber stamping….because it is so versatile….and my love is definitely for “cute” which is why I love Sugar Nellie images so much!"

I tried really hard to pick just a few of Bernies cards, but the more i looked through her blog the more cards i wanted to add, soooo i FINALLY settled on these beauties. To get a bit of variety i have tried to pick them from different ranges. I can not stress how much you NEED to visit her blog though. Her cards are all STUNNING and there are TONS of sweet Sugar Nellie cards over there too!!

I just had to share this first card with you. We are coming up to Valentines as I am sure you are all aware and well.. i LOVE this card!! It just proves that you don't need a vast stamp collection to be able to make all occasion cards. Its gorgeous Bernie!!

One of my all time favourite Sugar Nellie stamps would have to be this cutie!! I just love her and knew i would pick this card as soon as i saw it!! I LOVE the stitching on the card, it adds the perfect finishing touch don't you think!! Such a simple yet PERFECT card.

It is a well known fact that men and boys are near IMPOSSIBLE to make cards for!!! When i found such a perfect male card, it had to join my list of cards to share. I LOVE the sentiment that is teamed up with the image, Bernie's blog is full of quirky sentiments like this - a great source of inspiration!

This last card i have to share has amazing detail to it. I love the way that Bernie has masked off her stamps to make such a cute scene!! Not only is the gorjuss girlie leaning on the stump, her lil kitty is perched on it - perfect!!!

A long post today i know, but i am sure you will agree it is packed with gorgeous eye candy!! I would like to finish with a HUUUUUGGGEEEEE thank you to Bernie for agreeing to be in the Sugar Nellie spotlight. It has been an absolute pleasure showcasing your work here on the Sugar Nellie blog. As a little thank you to you sweeetie, i will be sending you the brand new 'i've been in the sugar nellie spotlight' banner for your blog. Please do go and check out Bernies blog, it is FULL of inspiration and the cutest cards.

Well thank you for staying with me on my loooong post and do remember to check back next Tuesday to see who is the next person in the Sugar Nellie Spotlight .. it could be YOU!!! hehe
