Sugar Addicts Showcase Sunday.

Good Morning Sugar Addicts.
It's Sunday morning so that can mean only one thing...it's my pleasure to shine the Sugar Spotlight on another talented crafter, and the lovely lady on the stage today is Paula.
A little background information first:

Hi, I’m Paula.
I’m 33 years old, and I live in Derbyshire UK, with my very understanding, but slightly bewildered Hubby (he just doesn’t get the excitement of papers, stamps and colouring! I swear he thinks there’s something wrong with me!)
I have a 12 year old Son, who is now a good 2 inches taller than me and thinks its hilarious to stand next to me and pat me on the head!
I’ve been card making for about 4 years now, and still loving every minute! The appeal for me is being able to colour as an adult! My favourite thing in the world to receive at Christmas as a kid was a HUGE colouring book and some felt tips! Nothing’s changed really except my colouring book is now stamps, and my felt tips are Promarkers!
I love to try out new techniques and ideas, so I struggle to find my ‘style’ but I’m not too worried about it, Its all about having fun, right?
I’ve been a big Sugar Nellie fan for a while now... My Favourites are the more arty stamps, like the Leanne Elliss’, and the Gorjuss Girls... but I’ve just discovered the Simply Sassys and have well and truly caught the Sassy bug!! They are so fun!
I’d like to say the BIGGEST thank you to Elaine for showcasing me, its a big confidence boost, and I am truly honoured!


And here is the fabulous card that Paula sent for me to show you, using the Sassy image Artistic Goddess from the very first set of Sassy stamps. I love Paula's style...you may say you don't have a 'style' but I can always tell a card made by you.


As always, I had a good old nosey through Paula's blog to show you some more cards. This beautiful card is made with the Sassy image Fit and Flirty. As you can see, stamps are versatile, you need not use the whole image but can just stamp a portion of it as Paula has done.


Paula has used another Sassy stamp Skater Girl for this lovely card which reminds me of summer days.


I HAD to show this card because Elise is one of my favourite Country Cousins stamps..I just love her! And these colours are fabulous.


An older image again, one of the Gorgeous Girls called A Little Birdie Told Me. I adore Paula's colouring, the richness of the colours and the perfect shading.


Ok...I just had to sneak in Hippie Chick.  Again from the very first set of Sassy stamps and the start of my own Sassy addiction!
I love all Paula's cards. Her colouring is perfect, fab layouts, beautiful bright colours and papers, and a pretty array of embellies. 
Many thanks Paula for letting me showcase your cards. Please go and pay her blog a visit, you won't be disappointed, there are so many Sugar Nellie cards there that it was really hard to pick out just a few!

Enjoy your Sunday, and I hope you all have time to get a little inky today.
Love Elaine xx
