Sunday Showcase.

Good Morning Sugar Addicts.

Today I want to show you some of the cards from the two day Jingle Bells and Tinkle Bells blog hop and from the Sneak Peaks. The Sugar Nellie DT, the Sweeties and guest all made such fabulous cards and projects that I spent ages trying to decide which to show here today because they are all so beautiful.

Sugar Nellie DT


Tiets made this amazingly detailed envelope album using 4 of the new stamps. This is only the front of the album but the full project can be seen on Tiets blog. This image is called 'Wish Upon A Star' and I think this must be a favourite amongst the Sugar Addicts as she's sold out already!!


Sarah made such a beautiful card with the image Little Apprentice using the traditional Christmas colours of red and green but giving it a modern twist with the kriss cross style of card.


Mina created a very pretty round card with the image Heavenly Angel. I love those papers Mina! They seem to be this years favourite set for me, and I adore the big, fat bow..delicious!

Sweeties.


This gorgeous card was made by Fi using the image Titania. I love the delicateness of this card, the beautiful shades of blue and another set of my favourite Christmas papers too. I hope you've written my name in this one Fiona!


Pat's card was used for a Sneak Peak and I LOVE this card..stunning! This image is called Hello Little Robin and I adore all the little detail on the image and also all the detail Pat adds to her cards.
This one's already got my name in it :)


Erika used the image Hello Little Friend to create this extra sweet card. Erika has shown perfectly that this stamp is not just for Christmas. I love the mushrooms, they give the card a real 'woodland' feel to it.

We also had a guest designer hopping along with us...


Astrid used the image Crystal Flakes to create her beautiful multi layered card. This image is next on my list to  show some inky love to. I just luvs this little cutie! Fabulous colours too Astrid.

Just before I go, I wanted to sneak in one more card.
This lovely lady didn't take part in the Sneak Peaks or in the hops and she doesn't have a blog...but she did show this card over on Facebook on the Sugar Nellie group and I was absolutely blown away by the sheer beauty of it.


I think this card is simply awesome and was made by the House of Sugars very own Kate using the image Christmas Garland.  My first question to Kate was "The garland over the image, which stamp did you use for that?" because it's such a perfect match. Kate drew it herself! Pffff! I am so green with envy as I can't draw for toffee! An absolutely awesome card Kate.

OK, sorry this has turned into such a long post. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

No apologies needed - just a joy & thank you so much for showing Kate's card. that is some creation & as for the garland - perhaps there should be a stamp made of it (BIG HINT KAREN). I love those floral/berry/leaf embellishments too & how the pearls pick out the white spots in the patterned paper.
