A Right Old Mixture ......

Hi All - hope your Saturday is going well!  I've been a lazy ol' Squirrel today really - spent a couple of hours watching the qualifying for tomorrow's F1 Korean Grand Prix (not happy with the outcome - grrrrr) and then have been playing happily. 

A little bit of a mixture for you today - let's start with James and his cracker:

My first love in rubber stamps is Penny Black but (and I feel so treasonous for saying this) Lili Of The Valley are now vying for that top spot in my affections.  I just adore the range of stamps available and there is something for every occasion.  The OCD side of my personality (come on, we all have one) is itching for a new release!  This one is James with his Christmas cracker and I've coloured him with Distress Inks (becoming a firm favourite also) and the papers are a mixture of Basic Grey and Dovecraft.

So that's Christmas, now onto a male thinking of you card:

You may remember that my fave cousin had surgery earlier this month.  That went well enough but there has been a complication since and he is meeting with his consultant again this coming week to discuss further surgery.  This High Hopes image called Hanging Around made me think of three things (1) to say hang in there (2) hanging around in hospital waiting rooms and (3) the day his brother sat on a frog.  Papers are Little Sizzlets.

And my third and final offering today (are you still awake?) is with my new Hanglar stamp that I purchased from my mate Sarah via her Ebay store -

I have just got to have more of these little loves!  Coloured with Copics this time.  Not sure about the make of papers as they came in a goody bag birthday gift from my boss.  Sentiment is Paula Pascaul/Personal Impressions.

Phew!  If you have managed to get this far then you deserve a medal, thanks for sticking with it.  I hope the rest of your evening is wonderful.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Hi Squirrel, love your cards today. I am a fan of Penny Black also, but I am falling for LOTV also. Thanks for sharing your cards. I love the frog card. Masculine cards are often difficult, but this one is great.
