Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

Morning all.  Normally all you would get from me on a Monday would be a grunt, but today I have had a small lie in.  OK, when I say lie in, that makes it sound like it was all snug and comfortable, but unfortunately it wasn't.  I woke up early hours because my paws were freezing and try as I might, I could not get them warm again.  So the lie in was more of a shiver in, but I was too lazy to actually shift out of bed.  But I am up now and the heating is on so I hope to warm up a little bit soon.

I had a bit of a tidy up in the craft room recently and have rediscovered a lot of neglected papers, so yesterday I thought I would have a rummage through and get started on using them.

I also "rediscovered" this stamp, which had hidden itself away in a corner, so that too had been neglected.

I do hope that there isn't a RSPCCS or you lot will be phoning the hotline soon.

So, the stamp is Wild Rose Studio - Bella with Presents
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The papers are My Mind's Eye (can't tell you which set)
And the sentiment is Hero Arts

Given how chilly it is today, I wouldn't be surprised if we get to see some of the white stuff,
and I don't mean Frantage either!

Hugs to all, Squirrel xx

Good morning Squirrel! Well, the white stuff has arrived over here last night, need to get out and clear the road. Just got up myself, late, I know, but the sleeping pill was doing its job. Love the Wild Rose Bella stamps, just got two of those a couple of days ago, so cute. Hope you'll have a nice week :) And put your paws into some warm socks :)

It's fun re-discovering neglected stash and you have made such a lovely card with it all :-)
Hmm, maybe I need to have a rummage and see what I can find...!
Big hugs, Kat xx

I've just indexed all my unmounted stamps and found a few I've not used much (or at all in some cases!). Love this Bella image, she's so cute. Pretty papers too. Hope your feet have warmed up. I get really cold tootsies too (hence the sheep slippers which are the only things that get my feet like little toasties after a while!)

downrightcrafty said...

shock!!!!!!!!!!!!!! horror!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe that you neglected my favourite Bella, I bet the packaging was all wet as she had cried and flooded the bag....................... oh my poor heart cannot take the thought of it.......................
although you did make her proud finding those lovely papers and presenting her so beautifully, don't forget to share with us on Facebook and if you wanted another stamp to neglect I have some WRS new release candy at the moment
hugs a tearful Kate xx :)

Hi sweetie, this is just gorgeous, love the colour choices you have chosen, perfect creation, huggles Pops x x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Awwww...! So cute! I won't report you since you are taking marvelous steps to fix the neglect. I think it is kind of fun to poke in all the dark corners and find the forgotten stash. It is even better to drag it into the light and use it!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Blogger is making me unhappy. It keeps acting like it isn't passing on my comments. Anyway, I said I wouldn't report you with neglect since you broke out the stash and used it. I like Elly-Phants and this is a sweet card.

KraftyKoolKat said...

This stamp and papers are too gorgeous to be neglected, I will not report you as you have made such a gorgeous creation.

What a cutie! I love the design too. These MME papers are the first I ever bought. I loved and used them so much, I bought a second pad! I must dig them out x
