Good Morning Sugar Lovers.
I've got a very special Sugar Addict to shine the spotlight on today....my very own Sugar Mama Gayle!!
A little background information in her own words?
No, I asked Gayle if she was sending me something and she said 'Nah, you write it', so here goes Gayle!
Gayle lives in Carcassonne - in France - in her head but in reality lives in Scotland. She's married to the lovely Robert and has two of the most beautiful little girls you ever did see, Ava and Maya. You should never reveal a ladies age but this will be the last year Gayle can be classed as a thirty-something!
Gayle has multiple addictions...Sugar Nellie's, gingham and umbrellas to name a few, oh and cherries!
She hoards pretty papers, prefers DI's to Copics, bathes in Philosophy products, bakes cupcakes and muffins, drinks Glayva, likes dogs but not cats, is a Gleek, loves her family and friends and is an all round sweet gal.
And of course Gayle is my Sugar Mama and runs the Sugar Bowl blog.
( On a personal note, she is also as mad as a hatter (totally bonkers) makes me howl with laughter..and I love her to bits)
OK..enough mushy stuff, on with some cards...
This beautiful and colourful Christmas card is made with a stamp from the latest release called Festive Friends, fabulously coloured with DI's.
As always, I picked some more cards off Gayle's blog to show you..that wasn't at all hard since they're almost ALL Sugar Nellie's on there!
I love this card. I love the image Furry friends and my favourite colour is blue so this cool, crisp Christmas card ticks all the boxes for me.
Aaaahhhhh Fashionista..still my mostest favouritest Sassiest stamp ever! These papers are so pretty, the colouring perfect and I love the grunge stamp around the image, which was a bit of a shocker to me as Gayle does NOT do grunge!
I had to show this card using Winking Student. The red is so striking against all the white and of course there's a bit of gingham thrown in for good measure. What is it with the Scots and gingham? Tartan I can understand but they all seem to have a gingham fetish too?
Bad Hare Day is another of my favourite stamps, I could just pinch her chubby cheeks! And I do believe my eyes can see some more gingham!
Last but not least is...
This gorgeous card uses the Gorgeous Girl stamp Foxy. Gayle followed a sketch by Tiets for this one and Tiets sketches are always detailed but make for the most beautiful cards. I love these rich, Autumnal colours.
Big squidgy hugs to Gayle for letting me showcase her cards here today, not that I actually gave her a choice in the matter! Please pop on over to her blog and leave her some of your inky love.
Now, before I leave you all in peace to enjoy your Sunday, I know some VERY exciting news! There's some changes been going on around here and.......
Nope... it's not my news so please pop back tomorrow when the organ grinder (and not the monkey me) will reveal all!
Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xxx
