Sweeties and Sneakies!!

Today sees a new challenge posted on the Sugar Bowl blog. A sketch for you to follow and an optional theme of 'One for the girls'. As always, the Sweeties have a beautiful array of cards to inspire you, including our two new Sweeties Cathy and Fiona.

Lets start off with:
Cathy is a busy work-at-home Mum to 2 beautiful girls, Ellie and Beth, and wife to understanding hubby Dave. So understanding he purpose built a craft room especially for her. Cathy started scrap booking after Ellie was born and then moved on to making cards for family and friends.Cathy's first Sugar Nellie stamp was Hamish with his tractor and since then she has added stamps from every range.


And here is Cathy's first card as a Sweetie on the Sugar Bowl using the Sassy image Butterflies and Pigtails (oops..so popular she's all sold out at Funky kits)
Fabulous card Cathy, beautifully coloured and such pretty papers.

Next up is:
Fiona but her friends call her Fi.  She is 40...ahem years old and married with 2 kiddos, one blue and one pink, Michael and Holly. Fi works in an HR department of a very, very large company. Fi  has been cardmaking for about 4 years after a friend introduced her to it when they were both involved with children's clubs and playschemes...and has been hooked ever since. 



And this is Fi's first card as a Sugar Bowl Sweetie using the Gorgeous Girls image Flower Girl.
Shades of pink and Kraft are a perfect mix and the image is so beautifully coloured.

Both these ladies are Sugar Addicts to the bone and are a fabulous addition to our team of Sweeties. Please pop over to their blogs and give them a big, sugary welcome.

I'm sure there was something else that I was supposed to write about today? Hmmmm....I'm thinking...thinking really hard...what could it be?
OK, OK, stop hissing at me...you'll get your screens wet and not be able to see this...


Have you been counting down the days to the sneak peaks? How many days to go now? None? You sure about that? OK, enough teasing Elaine...now I'm just being cruel!
What you've all been waiting for, may I proudly introduce the first of the sneak peaks...



This perfectly sweet image is called 'Hello Little Friend' and will be available to buy on Thursday 1st September from Funkykits. (along with lots of other gorgeous new images!)
Thank you to DT Maya for creating such a beautiful card. You can find additional details on how she made this card over on her blog.

Stripey socks with jingle bells, delicate, floaty wings and a too cute bunny...what more could I wish for?
Well just wait and see what tomorrows post brings! Another sneak peak of a totally different, but equally as gorgeous image. Same time, same place tomorrow..see y'all then!

Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xx
