little bird design

girls please email info@sugarnellie.com with the subject Winner and leave you addy for posting please. I would love to see some cards too when you have the time, I might even post the pic on the blog. Congratulations girls, have fun with your own little Rock Star :)

In like a lion out like a lamb...

March that is, weather and all that, an old saying which if true means that the weather this week should be brighter, I doubt it!

Never mind we are too busy in the sugar warehouse to look out the windows. Its the end of our business year and its counting time. So with the stock all ready to count and everything dispatched as quick as it arrives, we don't have much left in the sugar bowl.

But we do have a few ROCK STARS :)
These were only available as part of a kit but we do have some FREE to a good home.
Leave a comment and you will be in the draw.(Tell me when you start making your Christmas cards so we can plan when to launch the Christmas stamps.)

Currently we are putting the card kit together for Funkykits and waiting for the new Rachelle stamps to arrive. More stock of the sell out Nellies is also expected this week.

we are very sorry :(

We are very sorry, we got it wrong, there is no way we could have guessed that you all needed a sugar fix, there just was not enough sugar to go around, so many disappointed stampers, many of you phoning and emailing Funkykits because you missed them, minuets, that's all it took for some of the new stamps to sell out.

For those of you who did not run fast enough, don't worry, we will get some more sugar to Funkykits next week and re stock the sell outs as quickly as we can. Ideally everything should be in stock most of the time, but its difficult to keep up.

For those of you who are waiting for a little bit of sugar to arrive at your door, have fun, sharpen those pencil and look out those yummy papers ready to play with.:)

rubber rubber and more rubber

We were all waiting for the new Little Cotton Rabbit stamps to arrive and they took longer than we wished for but we did not expect the new Nellie's to arrive the same day!

I did not even manage to give you a peek of all 6, but they arrived and they were dispatched to Funkykits where they went online sometime this morning but I hear that some have sold out already. Needless to say we will have more rubber coming to us again next week as I can hear you all shouting for more.

LCR: Foxy, Monkey, Bear & rabbit family
NELIES; Football, fishing and Sk8r boy Luca & Summer, Puppy love and Nellie with Foal.

What's missing from your collection?

Here fishy fishy

One more peek at the new Nellies arriving next week. On the recent poll you voted Nellies as your fav range, Eva will be delighted with that. But our best selling stamp is a Maggie. So something for everyone at Sugar Nellie. Have a great day colouring in.

Rachelle is back

We have a few new bigger stamp designs by Rachelle, these designs are not exclusive to us but we think you will like them :)
Rachelle has shot to stardom as a stamp designer since working on the first Sugar Nellie stamps and now designs freelance for several stamp companies. We are lucky to have 20 exclusive designs due for the winter season which I am sure they will be just adorable, we cant wait to see those. This one will be for the Funkykits mini class kit and the others will be available next week.

Welcome back to the Sugar Nellie DT Rachelle your stamping fans are delighted that you are
for now sticking with us.

Spring is in the air

Today the weather was much milder here on the farm in Scotland, as I looked out the window while surfing on the computer I stopped for a moment to watch the men put the new born calf's from last night back out to the fields with their mothers. The lambs are coming so fast that I have lost count and with all these new babies about I thought it only right to let you see our first baby animal with a Nellie. So here is little Nellie with a foal for all those little girls who love my little pony.

SK8R Boy

"he was a sk8er boy,
she said see you later boy,
you're not good enough for me"
I can remember when that song was a hit can you?
So here is our sk8r boy, is he cool, is he good enough for you?

Mad March

We must be mad......................we have even more new stamps for you.
First there is the Little Cotton Rabbit family kits. Then there is Foxy, Monkey and Bear all available next week I guess


Eva has done some more designs for us. We are delighted that Eva is back illustrating and glad that all went well with baby Jed trip to hospital. As a busy mum to 3 boys it is amazing she has time for anything.

Now I expect that Funkykits will want one of these for its first mini class kit, so I just don't know which one to give you a peek at. What about croc's, do you have a little girl with a pink pair of crocs? Something for those summer day that I pray arrive this year, its been such a long winter we need a bit of sunshine.....................lets just call her Summer.

Mini Class Kit for Funkykits

As I said somewhere in the www, we have been asked to put together a mini class kit.

The kit will offer great value and loads of free inspiration along with one stamp, some papers and embellishments and an online class with pic to follow.

Our job is to put the kit together and the DT at Funkykits will take it and make it into a class.
I expect this to be ready mid march and it will be very interesting to see what the girls make it into.

Something to look forward to, a small treat for those of you who can not get to classes or just prefer to sit in the comfort of your own space and craft.

Last shout for candy?

Only one entry into the draw for candy yesterday, you girls missed out, but AG did not.

So a week of candy give-aways and this is the last day, comment on this post to be in the last draw for LCR candy.

RAK with the customers from Funkykits will be top secret until they arrive.

OK OK OK I can just see you all jumping up and down waving those prisma pencils at me LOL

Samm March 5, 2008 9:50 AM, well done Samm, the odds were not so good yesterday but it was your name out of the sugar bowl. Congratulations.

Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

Frances used two different cuttlebug embossing folder both new releases, which will be available soon from Funkykits.

Mad March

Well it will be, with 100's of little rabbits running around the warehouse next week LOL.
As we get ready for the delivery of rubber on Monday, the weather is not doing much to get us all int he mood for spring :( Poor little lambs are being born into the wild windy weather that we have had all week here in Scotland. Hope its better where you are.
