Lots to tell you today so make a cuppa, grab a biscuit and pull up a chair :)
Today we have a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl, with a fab sketch to follow and an optional theme of 'Butterflies'. Now tell me who doesn't like butterflies? Beautiful little fairy bugs flitting on by on gossamer wings. What's not to love??
Ain't she just the sweetest little fairy ever?
Exciting news next....we have some new baby Sweeties!! Four to be exact!
I was asked recently, how do you become a Sweetie...Sweeties are born Sweeties!
I'm not sure I should really tell you this - trade secrets and all that - but Sweeties are born deep down in the Scottish Sugar Mines, and are raised by the elves. Please don't worry about conditions in the mines, they are very well looked after. They dine on sweets, chocolates and fairy cakes, sleep in beds of candy floss and bathe only in Scottish Spring water.
When the Sweeties are fully mature, the Sugar Mama brings them up from the Sugar Mines to play in the Sugar Bowl.
(Disclaimer: This may not be totally accurate...some of the existing Sweeties are definitely not mature!!)
Let's give a very warm welcome to...
(In alphabetical order)
Jennifer has used the Simply Sassy image Butterfly Girl (sorry she is sooo popular that she's sold out!)
All fabulous cards from our fabulous new Sweeties :)
I hope you will pay their blogs a visit and leave them some love.
On a much sadder note....
Our lovely Sweetie Lilian has decided to step down from the Sugar Bowl :(
This will be Lilian's last card, and I am so sad to see her go.
On that note, I will leave you will a couple more of Lilian's fabulous cards.
Faye and Freddie.
And of course, Pippi Longsocks.
Sorry it's been such a long post...I did warn you!
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx
