No Pink In Sight

Afternoon all.  How are you lot then?  What has happened to today, can anyone tell me?  OK, I got up late because a little hairy body was enjoying snuggly warm cuddles with his mum, and his mum didn't have the heart to disturb him - that's my excuse and I am sticking to it - so it was ticking on a bit when I finally surfaced.

Then I set too with prepping for a chicken casserole for tonight, and that was in the oven by 1.00.  Toad came home last night with a card order for one of the lads in his office, apparently his mum has broken her arm rather badly and, bless him, he was about to send her, in Toad's words, quite a tacky shop card, and then he decided it would be nicer to send her something unique.  So that is what I have been up to this afternoon, that and some DT work, and suddenly it is time to put some veggies on.

Anyhoo, I do have something to share, and I am going to enter it as this week's Sweet Stamping Challenge whose theme is Girly But Not Pink (oh Samantha, I did think of you bird!).

I have stamped one of the adorable Wee Flower Fairies
Painted her with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The fabulous background shape is a Nestabilities label from a set that a Blogging Santa just happened to shove in my stocking at Christmas (mwah!)
Nesties classic circle dies, and a Martha Stewart heart border punch
Oh, and those all important hole punch dots
The sentiment is an itsy bitsy teeny weeny cutie from a Hero Arts set

Hope your weekend is being kind to you, and I will be back again tomorrow probably

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

It's not pink but it definitely is girlie! I love the yellows and oranges. I have a stamp out that I plan to do up in oranges once I get off my lazy bottom. I really like the paisley pattern in this card. Fun stuff and gives it great motion.

No pink....perish the thought.
Another great card my friend even if it's not pink!

It just goes to show that you can make a super pretty card without any pink in sight - who knew?!
