Cherry On Top

Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to you!  The sun is shining, the birds are singing (and they were at 5.30, the little devils), and I am ON HOLIDAY, whooooooooooooooooooooooo!!  I was an incredibly lazy Squirrel this morning and, having turned the alarm off last night, I had a lovely long snoozy lie-in.  Bliss, and long overdue!

Anyhoo, here with a simple little card for you today:

This is one of the new Angelica & Adam stamps from Crafters Companion
and is called Cherry on Top
CC have ventured into acrylic stamps for this range, and at £2.99 each they are a bargain
I will say that I found the stamp a little on the soft and floppy side, but with gentle handling the end result was good.  Press too hard and you would get blurred edges I think.
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) on Bristol Board
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches
Papers are Dovecraft Tea House collection

Whatever you are up to today, I hope it is fun.

Hugs to all, Squirrel xx

Thanks for that light bulb moment! I have some clear stamps that always seem to get blurred edges. Now I know what their issue is. I promise to try not to manhandle them so much in the future.

This is more your style of a CAS card, not so naked as the one showed off later. Adorable!
