Just For The Fun Of It

Morning all, hope this finds you well, or if you are poorly, I hope you are soon feeling much better.  Last day of May - how is that possible?!

As regular readers will know, Thursday is my only craft night of the week so when I got home (after a bus trip that was furnace hot) I whooped with joy to find my new Whimsy stamps on the doormat.  I opened them, I cooed over them, I stroked them (yep, I really did), and then I used something else!  Just call me contrary.

This is a CC Designs Sweet November Stamp called Patty - the link will take you to the right
place at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, one of my favourite stash buying stores
I have only used Patty once before but she is so full of joy that I could not resist getting her inky again
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The double sentiment is from a Woodware set called Inspirational Verses
Peel-off stars I finally managed to get a re-stock of from Handy Hippo
Spotty papers from scraps box, matting layer is white card edged in Sunflower ProMarker
Image and sentiments both stamped in Memento Inks (Tuxedo Black and Bahama Blue)

Nine hours to the weekend - and counting!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel! Love it! I always find when I get new stuff I have to leave it just sit for a couple of days, get used to its presence and whatnot before I use it, hahaha :D
