A CAS Spring

Hello all.  Well, here we are at midweek - and I'm still not sure what day it is, just glad that it is another day closer to the weekend!

Taking a leaf out of Wishcraft's book on Waste Not Wednesday, I have today used a stamp that has been uninked since purchase (oh the shame of it).  I won't be spending much, if anything, on craft toys this month as I have been a bit of a naughty Squirrel and indulged in my other addiction ... I've just ordered a new Kipling handbag!  I am hopeful that it will arrive by the end of the week so at least I can sit and stroke it and take my mind off rubber (ooh err missus).

Anyhoo, here is my clean and simple Spring card for you made using the sweetest Marianne Design stamp


Isn't she such a cutie?  I bought her from Bunny Zoe's Crafts - she's called Finding A Crocus and you can find her here.  Painted in Distress Inks, with a Hero Arts sentiment and a matting layer coloured with Orchid ProMarker, the tiny little butterflies were a punch that I bought in a local supermarket (three punches for £2.50).

Oh my gosh, I wish I hadn't gone over to BZ's to find the links as I have just spotted some more MUST HAVE stamps ......... someone stop me!!!

Hugs, Sxx

This is why we're great bloggy buds... you're the only other person I know who's crazy enough to SELF-enable when it comes to amassing crafting goodies! LOL And let's stop talking about uninked stamps... my Strawberry Kisses are off pouting in a corner. And some Magnolias. Um, and some new Tim Holtz. And um... gah. Why did you get me started?! Ahem. Anyway. CAS works so fab with a well-colored image, especially a cute image. ;)

Rufus said...

Yes, you have been a very naughty Squirrel, but that's OK we love you anyway! Sweet, but then you know I love your stamp collection AND your coloring skills. As for the shame of it all, find me a stamper that doesn't have an un-inked stamp or two! Be strong!!!!!!!!(or not,lol)
Hugs,

Just did a quick tour of what I have missed, cor! it's a LOT, well done on such beautiful cards, love your moan about the jelly babies too LOL

Princess Judy Palmer said...

LOL! I was going to go check out the BZ link you provided but then you said you wished you hadn't gone so I won't go now. I have TOO MANY Things I want already. Like MORE LOTV stamps... I haven't even used the ones I have yet. I have a huge wish list at Simon Says Stamp too-they sell a variety of stuff so there is one of everything there. Anyway... sweet card. Not going to look, can't make me!
