Sugar Nellie Showcase Sunday

This week the lovely and very talented Elaine asked me to be on the Sugar Nellie Showcase Sunday slot.
I was very surprised to be asked and of course said yes please I'd love to be, who wouldn't?
So this is my card and yes it's Christmas time in August.  Ho, ho ho!

For this card I have used:
Paper Crafts House Plum Pudding Mince pies, Selection box and Egg Nog, plus red card stock.
Spellbinder nestabilities classic rectangles large and scalloped.
Sugar Nellie stamp Santa with tree.
Rub on Scenic Route Christmas dreams.
Red elastic cord, bell and bling from stash.
Coloured with copics, Distress ink vintage photo, Star dust Stickles and Glossy accents.

I love this stamp, to me this is what Christmas is all about,
a traditionalist at heart, it has to be red and green with Santa.
Talking of Santa we were watching TV last night and the chance of winning a holiday came up. 
I said to my Hubby I would rather take the boys to Lapland than have that holiday,
at which my youngest piped up, "why?"
So I said, "To take you to see Santa at his home."
His reply, "Oh, mummy I don't need to do that, remember I saw him last year at the Garden centre!"
LOL.  Guess we won't be doing Lapland then!
He was a very good Santa at the Garden centre as he told the boys they needed to make mum and dad breakfast in bed. 
More surprisingly for me is that the kids actually did do breakfast the next morning!
Thanks Santa. x

Before I go I just wanted to let you know that we have another up and coming blog hop with some fabulous new stamps from Sugar Nellie. 
If you loved the last lot.....
well, what can I say...they're fab...
my favourites so far.
I'm sure any Sugar addicts out there will love them too.

Well that's all from me today, hope you are all having a lovely crafty Sunday.
Thanks for coming over.

Sorry for the lateness in leaving this comment Erika, my visitors have gone home, my house is now back to normal.

Fabulous fun and festive card. I love the tradition colours and that gorgeous deep red on Santas suit.
Thank you very much for allowing me to showcase your fabulous cards today (though I was tempted to show some of your elegant nestie cards too) The pleasure was all mine.

Love Elaine xxx
