Sugar Addicts Showcase Sunday.

Good Morning Sugar Addicts.

I have the most lovely and talented lady to put in the spotlight today and this crafter most definitely has a Sugar addiction...

Hi, I am  Nic or Coops as I`m known as in blogland. I've been with my long suffering husband for 22 years and am a proud mum of a 7 year old boy and I work part time in retail.
I have always enjoyed all things arty since I was a child and I got into cardmaking about 5 years ago when I was out of work. I started blogging almost 2 years ago and it really opened my eyes to the vast array of yummy products to play with, especially Sugar Nellie stamps.
I am a HUGE Simply Sassy fan as anyone who visits my blog will see and I also enjoy using strong colours in my colouring and papers.
Thank you so much Elaine for asking to showcase my cards.I am so honoured and still can`t quite believe it.


And this is the beautiful and and bright card Nic sent for me to show you today. This image is of course a Sassy and called Retail Therapy, perfectly coloured and I love these zingy colours!
Of course I know you need to see more than one card, so I had a good time picking out my favourite ones to show you from her blog.


A gorgeously pink and pretty card, perfect for a special delivery, using the Home Grown image Cute and Cuddly


Old Saint Nick is the image this time..someones getting ahead with their Christmas cards! Doesn't he look awesome coloured in these sepia tones? I think this is one really fab card.


On the theme of Christmas I had to show this Sassy card using the stamp All Wrapped Up. I love all the tones of green and the bunting with little snowflakes on it.


A very pretty and girly card made with Cherry Pip
Nic, you have managed to combine 3 of Gayle's addictions all on the one card..Sugar Nellie, gingham AND cherries!!


And finally, since I'm picking the cards to show then I had to show this one too! Blues, browns and Butterfly Girl all go together to create the perfect card in my eyes.

Please pop on over to Nics blog and say hi. Make a cuppa first as you may be there for a long while! There are so many gorgeous cards to see. It took me ages to narrow down the ones to show here today to just a few!

Tomorrow we have a post from one of the new dt members. I hope you will all come back here and show some of your warm, inky love and support to Vicky.

Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx

I think the green Sassy & the Sepia St Nick are my favourites. Goodness what an array. This is a delightful mixture Elaine & I've had to come back several times before I could do your post & Nic's work justice. Congratulations Nic & it's great to see someone who uses orange with such flamboyance.
