Sunday Spotlight

I am lucky to have met Alison at the SECC in Glasgow a few years running, that first time we had a stand was exhausting and much that kept us going was the enthusiastic sugar addicts that came along to say hello.
Ali was one of many who have followed Sugar Nellie over the years and her support has meant a lot to me.

 That year we met a very excited Gayle who went on to manage the SUGAR BOWL challenge blog and one of her sweeties is Alison, who has now been given an "in house promotion" to the Sugar Nellie DT, big cheer as I know she is super excited by this new challenge if not a little bit nervous, you have nothing to worry about Alison, your work is inspirational and I am happy to have you as part of our family.

Here are a few of Ali's sweet cards....


Congratulations Ali, you are the reason why I luv WOW cards so much and I look forward to seeing what you do with your DT stamps which should be with you in the week.


I am now looking for new blood, yes that vampire fetish I have requires that I find new virgin  blood, a crafter who is not part of any DT's, completely new and refreshing to the eye. No top blogger's  but just someone who loves the hobby and deserves a chance to shine. Leave me a link as a comment and I will go and have a lookie, you can pre fix any comment you leave me with the word PRIVATE and I will not publish it.

Hope you all had a restful Sunday, I myself are still tiding up after the 12 hour marathon party, I also need to do a supermarket run so we have something to eat tonight and cut up more rubber for Monday morning for FUNKYKITS, I can see by there site that some of the new Adorables have sold out in rubber, just as well digi don't sell out. :)
I am loving seeing the new Simply Adorable digi image being made into cards so quickly over on the facebook page, girls you are all so fast with your crafting and such beautiful cards too.

take care

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay for Ali!!!

Tertia said...

Oh my, new blood! Could that be me? Please come on over and look at my blog. I just LOVE your stamps and would be so honoured to be part of your team. Staying so far away, it is often hard to get fantastic stamps like yours and then a company that actually delivers EVERY order so promptly. I don't know how you do it, but I am so grateful that you do.

huge congratulations to Ali - she's responsible for me giving WOW a try too. Am so looking forward to seeing how she gets on being on the BIG DT :)

Paula said...

Brilliant Karen! Hope your tidying wasn't too painful -sounds like a rather long party. Good news with the Adorables - I think I need to persuade my husband that we are going to the House of Sugar for a holiday - so I can cut rubber for you.

Perhaps I could fly up on my own - now there's a thought.
