A Little Grumble...

Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year, with the twinkling lights and the candles and the cozy evenings, even the weather doesn't faze me much (mind you, no rain please :D). But I couldn't take a decent photograph for love nor money this afternoon at around four-ish! It was already getting dark and I could just about take this picture, but the other card I made today will have to wait till next weekend and daylight ;o).

Love this stamp...I know I say that about all my stamps, and it's true, I do :D. Aren't we crafters an easy bunch to satisfy eh ;o). Give us some stamps, some paper and some pretty flowers and we can play for hours!

Here's one I made the other weekend. Got some lovely "sugar" from Sugar Nellie in the shape of three of their Home Grown stamps: Pringle the Bunny, Nuts the Squirrel and Cheddar the Mouse :D. I made them a card and sent it to them with some sugar (edible) in return :D. I tend to go for the cute girls 'n' boys stamps, not so much for the animals, but that's going to change! I've got loads of Penny Black hedgehogs, bunnies and what have you, plus some lovely High Hopes animals and now these Sugar Nellie's, so my New Year's resolution (gettin' em in early ;o)) is to use at least one per crafting session :D.

Materials used:
Penny Black stamp, Aud Design sentiment, K&Company paper, Prima Flowers, Joy! Crafts pearls, buttons, pin, spacers, brads

Sugar Nellie stamp, Making Memories paper and rub-on text, Prima Flower, buttons, brads, ribbon


Anyway, that's it from me for now, back to work again tomorrow so I'll see you next weekend! Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely week!
