Sugar Addicts Showcase Sunday.

EDITED to add: If I've done this right THIS is the link to the Facebook Group.

Just in case you don't know about it, we have a Sugar Nellie group over on Facebook. It's a very friendly group of crafters who all share the same addiction. It's also somewhere you can upload your card photos to whether you have a blog or not. There is a weekly card challenge where you can win a Sugar Nellie stamp and a new challenge is posted every Sunday. It's a great place to meet and chat with like minded folk and exchange ideas and it's a great extension to the Sugar Nellie family. So if you've not been there before then why not pop over and join our little group. 
It was on the Sugar Nellie group on FB that I first met this weeks addict Gillian and here is a little background info on her:

I am Gillian and I am a self confessed "Sugar Addict". - its been 7 days since my last purchase !!!

Almost 42, I recently retrained and graduated with my nursing degree. Shift work sometimes doesn't give me enough craft time but nursing and crafting are my 2 loves so my life is a happy one. 
I bought my first rubber stamp back around 1998 from a wee craft shop called Dorrie Doodle in Aberdeen. I soon had boxes of stamps and made cards and wooden angels and the like to sell at craft fairs or for family and friends. However, I moved house in 2004 and never really unearthed my stash except for the occasional family card until about 2 or 3 months ago. Things have moved on a lot in 7 years and card making has become far more of an art. The techniques, materials and equipment available now have really meant I've had to learn all over again. Living close to the "House of Sugar HQ" means that it was VERY easy for me to become a sugar addict, VERY quickly. I already own 31 Sugar Nellie stamps and am particularly addicted to Sassy stamps. I love the paper layering and embellishments which I never really did much of before. 
I am very new to blogging but please feel free to follow me because then I can follow you too as I really love looking at other peoples beautiful creations.




Need I tell you what this gorgeous gal is called? Bella Bunting is one of my favourite Sassy stamps and available to buy HERE.


A beautiful bright and cheery card using I Love to Read which you can get HERE.


I love the paper piecing on Skater girls pants, those are real funky jeans! Available to buy from HERE.


And last but not least is a stunning WoW card for this weeks FB challenge, using the Gorjuss Girl Untamed, and if this one isn't already in your collection then you can buy her HERE at a very special price.

Gillian has only been blogging for a little over a month so please pop on over to her BLOG and leave her some inky love and support. 
Thank you Gillian for allowing me to showcase your beautiful cards. 
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Love Elaine xx

I have to agree with you about Skater Girl's jeans - stunning with that large flower too - a real Flower Power Girl. Untamed is a real stunner too.
What a lovely Sunday treat.
