Cor Blimey...I Nearly Fainted!

Just eight more sleeps to go until July 1st is here. The start of another month, but MUCH more importantly, the release of lots of new rubber from Sugar Nellie!
Karen has planned the Carnival Of Colour blog hop to celebrate the release and it will be fabulous. So mark the date in your diaries..you really don't want to miss this!

Don't forget that you have a chance of winning the full set of 5 Sherbet Pips rubber stamps if you enter the Sugar Bowl challenge. The winner is chosen at random so everyone who enters has an equal chance of winning but you ain't gonna win if you don't enter!

Since I started my own blog I have met some wonderful people and made lots of friends. I don't pick cards to show on here made by my close friends, seems like an abuse of the position, but today I made an exception so I hope nobody minds? I nearly fainted when I saw this!


This Sugar Bowl entry was made by my good buddy Amanda from the USA. Amanda and I have lots of things in common except...she is not a Sugar Addict!  Judging by this beautiful card, using the digi image Flora, I think my efforts to convert Amanda from the Dark Side to the Sweet Side are working! It fair made my day to see this card posted on her blog :)


This gorgeous, sweet Summer card was made by Jenni using the Country Cousins image Fragile Beauty. I love this stamp, so pretty and innocent and another one of my favourites.


Summer cards aren't just for girls you know! This fabulous male card made by Shelby using the Country Cousins image To Catch A Big Fish is perfect. Fishing is a great and popular pastime  for many a little guy during the long Summer holidays..and many a big guy too!

The theme of Summer is only optional. All you need to do to enter the challenge is make a card or project following the current sketch and you must use a Sugar Nellie image, either rubber or digi. All details can be found on the Sugar Bowl blog.

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx

Brilliant - I'm glad your posted Amanda's card. Brilliant variety amongst this selection - amazing when you think that one sketch can look so different when used by a selection of people.
Hope you've had a good day.
