Sugar Addicts Showcase Sunday.

Good Morning Sugar Addicts.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin....where did that come from? It just popped in my head! I've suddenly gone back 20 years (OK that maybe should've read 40+ years) to my childhood. After lunch I would sit by the radio waiting for 'Listen with Mother' and I'm quite sure that there was a tv programme called 'Watch with Mother'. It was the highlight of my day when me and Mum would sit together and listen to the radio.
I digress, you've not come here to read about the silly strange things that pop in my head but to see who is in today's Sunday Showcase so without any more of my blether, let me introduce the very talented and lovely Sue...

Hi, my name is Sue, I live in S.E. London with my partner Steve & 2 cats Max & Sam.
I started crafting about 16 years ago, thanks to my sister Linda & never looked back.I now have a craft room stacked with stash & rubber stamps. I just love the stamps from Sugar Nellie, I'm amazed at the fab designs being added all the time and you could say I'm a Sugar addict. Thank you so much Elaine for asking me.

And Sue sent me two cards to show you:


Firstly is this beautiful card made with one of the new Sherbet Pips stamps, this one is called Candy Pip.


The second of Sue's cards is made with Dolly Pip. I love both of these cards, they are CAS in style and show off the images perfectly.
I made myself a cuppa and wandered through Sue's blog to pick some more cards to show you...


Gosh! This is simply gorgeous. I may be just a little bit biased, I do have a big soft spot for Sassy's and in particular for Hippie Chick from the very first set of Sassy's.


Sue also has the knack for making fabulous cards for the men in our lives, this is the Manga image Sporty. I love the softer colours on this card and the texture from the embossing.


Another fab male card using the Manga image Scooter Boy. I really like the way Sue has used the stripey paper both vertically and horizontally, and the photo corners which lead your eye inwards to the image.


And finally we have the Manga image Woodland Fairy for this ever so pretty card.
I think Sue's cards are all fantastic. Beautifully coloured images, clean and simple layouts, soft colour palettes and delicate embellishments.
Many thanks Sue for letting me show your cards here today, please go and pay Sue a visit, there are so many beautiful cards for you to see on her blog.

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx

The images are beautifully coloured as you say Elaine get over that that effect was achieved using Copics - a light hand indeed. I remember the Watch With/Listen With Mother from around 40 odd years ago. I learnt English that way!
