Sugar Addicts Showcase Sunday.

Good Morning Sugar Addicts.
Yep, it's little ole' me and I'm back with another very talented crafter to put on a pedestal and shine my spotlight on, and today's lovely lady is none other than my Sugar Bowl  Sweetie sister Erika.
A little background information in her own words first:

My name is Erika and I'm 42. I live on the North East coast of Scotland I am married to Nigel with two boys, Nathan aged 12 and Callam aged 7. I work part time as a demonstrator for Personal Impressions and cover the North of Scotland area.  
I love getting out and meeting fellow crafters and on the plus side I get to play with lots of lovely new yummy stash. I am also very lucky to call the House of Sugar my "local" craft shop!

But what Erika hasn't mentioned is that she passed a screen test recently for QVC!!!

So, this is the gorgeous card Erika sent for me to show today:

This jolly chap is Santa with Tree from the Home Grown range. I love this Christmas card and those fabulous rich reds Erika has used. (OK, Erika, you can write my name in this one please ready to post closer to the time!)
Of course I picked some more cards off Erika's blog to show you...

I chose this one because I simply adore this pretty colour combo and Erika's fab handmade flowers. This perfectly coloured image is Summer, available as a digi.

A gorgeous Christmas card..I picked this one because Erika says she doesn't 'do' pink and girly, but this card proves that Erika does indeed 'do' pink and girly most beautifully! Plus I love the image Furry Friends.

And just to prove my point here is a pink and sweet baby card using the digi image Bambino.
Fabulous colouring and perfectly embellished.

It just wouldn't be right if I didn't show you a card made with a Sassy image, now would it? Me and Bella Bunting are bestest friends, I love this little lady, and I know this card is one of my Sugar Ma'am Gayle's's a gingham thing with Gayle :)

Last but certainly not least is Honey Pip. I love these pretty colours and the soft shades on the papers, and the little ruffled ribbon near the bottom.

Erika makes cards in lots of different styles from the pink and girly ones to the more grungy style so it's always a pleasure to peak on her blog and see what she's been up to, and  they are always beautifully coloured.
Please pop on over to her BLOG and say won't be disappointed with her vast collection of cards and projects. must all be eagerly awaiting the arrival of some new RUBBER from Sugar Nellie..yes? Of course yes!
It won't be long now and believe me when I say that these new images are more than worth the wait!
Now poor Karen has had to sit on her hands to stop herself showing you these new stamps, she's just itching to let the cat out of the bag, but Captain Gayle says no because....

YES! Next Thursday Gayle will be starting a week of sneak peaks, something to whet your appetites and get you whipped up into a rubber frenzy! So watch this space....

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx

You're right about the variety of styles - quite amazing.
I particularly like the way there's a tiny bit of aqua to pick out the patterned paper colour in Furry Friends & that last one with the ruffled ribbon - very different.
Looking forward to the new release.......Gayle is certainly getting organized.
