I'm a Sugar Addict

It's official, I'm a Sugar Addict, Sugar Nellie that is, and today I am featured on the Sugar Nellie blog. Sugar Nellies were some of the first stamps I ever bought and for my bag and tag today I have used Home Grown Manga Gingerbread and Baubles, both coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I made these for my friend Lynsey's Christmas pressy. We had a lovely day yesterday and Lynsey loved her bag which can't be opened until Christmas Day of course. Can you tell Lynsey loves pink and glitter! For the bag, which I bought in the US,  I used Papermania Percy and Penelope papers and distressed the edges, adding lace, a Wild Orchid rose and Woodware punched leaves.

Here's the tag in more detail.  I covered a tag with a K & Co ornate tag, added some MS punched rose leaves to the paper rose and some pearls. I added a small star brad to keep the tag in place.

You can buy these gorgeous stamps at Funky Kits. Thanks to Elaine for showcasing me on the Sugar Nellie blog. I hop you will hop over there and leave a comment.

I would like to enter this into the no cards challenge at Charisma and the bingo challenge at Sir Stampalot. I meet 3 of the lines - brads, lace, pearls - pearls, flowers, punch and lace, flowers, tags.
