Guest Design Team Creations

The above peek is one of Jeanette's creations, not made with her DT stamps but with her own Gorjuss girl, I love this colour combo and there are many amazing cards to view on the blogs of our DT. Have a little look at what they have been up to and send me a comment linking me to what you have been doing too, I would love to see what you have done with your sweet sugar nellies. Keen to see CAS (clean and simple) cards too :)
I had a day off today and went to visit Tracy, she thanks you all for your good wishes and get well cards you so kindly took the time to send to her.
Enjoy your weekend girls and I will catch you again soon.


I want to smack the people who continue to sell stamped images when it is clearly stated in our Angle Policy and it is a blatant violation of our copyright. I feel very strongly about this, it is hugely damaging to the stamp companies and I have discussed this subject only last week with the representative of Penny Black. I know that Hanglar & Stanglar feel the same and I do read other stamp companies Angel Policy to see if they too are aware of this bad practice.

I have today emailed 4 Internet sites to make them aware that they are in fact violating our copyright. If the images stay on their website for sale I will name and shame them.

I did not wish to bring this to your attention but the disrespect shown to us, our artists and you our paying customers has angered me greatly.
How can we grow and flourish when other people take advantage of our hard work. Copyright is a can of worms but in our case it clearly says NO SELLING OF STAMPED IMAGES, how much clearer do we need to be, or are these "cowboys" not interested in rules only making money by selling our artwork and that of other stamp companies against copyright law.

Angel Policy

WOW what can I say, go see for yourself, thank you Maddy :)

It just gets better and better, thank you Rachel.
Marlene has done it again, ain't this so cute, blue and black is a great colour combo and this is a gorjuss card :)

Sugar addict have been busy, hop over to these blogs and see what other have been creating.
We are getting ready for the launch for the next set of six Annie stamps designed by Leanne Ellis this weekend. Will restocks also needed to give you all a wide choice of sugar to pick from, we are working our way through the rubber.
For those attending the SECC in Glasgow next week, look out for the sugar :) Sweet things can be found on the Imagination stand, be sure to stop by and say hello to Harvey & Sue.

Gorjuss creations

Gorjuss creations are making an appearance in blog land. These two are from Marlene and Tiets, more on their blogs. As sets are arriving on door mats all over the world I am watching out for more. There is a challenge over on SCS so if you fancy getting your hands on the 2nd set join in.
And if you like the blog make over visit Debs as she has other Gorjuss designs.

Gorjuss day

Well it has been a gorjuss day here in Scotland, not only are 99% of orders away to the local post office but we have had a lot of visitors in the house of sugar offering their help as we cope without our number one sugar slave.

With so many of you waiting for your Gorjuss stamps I am on the look out to see what you do with them, there will be a Gorjuss challenge over at SCS where you could win the 2nd set of Gorjuss stamps and they are stunning.

I will be back later with some pics to show you of Gorjuss Creations.

Tracys News

I received a call from Tracy's DH this morning, she was taken by ambulance to hospital last night after a fall. The Doctors are planing on operating this morning to put pins in her bones to help with the recovery, I believe its her ankle that was shattered and she will be off work for weeks as she takes the bus to work and its a long walk even to the bus stop when you are plastered and in crutches.

I am still working out how this will effect Funkykits, I will know better tomorrow, Gorjuss Day, what a busy week they had planned, but we will pull together and hope that it does not effect the service you have come to expect from them.

A lot of you know Tracy and will join me in sending her get well soon wishes and lots of hugs mixed in with a mountain of cyber chocolate , I will speak to her later but I know she will be stressed to the max with two little girls to look after and DH due to go away in March ski ing, not to mention her work, which is not important in the grand scheme of things but Tracy is the back bone of FK, its her baby and she gives it 110%., a better employee you could not find.

One for Laura

The girls over on the SUGAR NELLIE members company forum were asking for a peak, this one is for Laura and all the other growing followers of Leanne Ellis. We know next to nothing about Leanne, I have no idea even how old she is, 16 or 60 I have no idea, all I do know is that I love her work and that is enough for me.
