Special Delivery & 175,000

Morning all, how are we today?  When this hopefully posts I shall be on my way to Church with Toad so fingers crossed everything works.

A simple little card (what else can you expect from me) that is sort of an aperture attempt.


Stamp is Crafters Companion Strawberry Kisses - Special Delivery
Painted in a light wash of Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Aperture cut with X-Cut postage stamp die
Background paper is First Edition New Bloom
Sentiment is Hero Arts

I would like to enter this in the following challenges



Candy
Now then, I have totally missed my blogoversary (it was two weeks ago) and I had hoped it would coincide with 200,000 hits, but things seem to have been quiet around blogland lately (so many peeps using Facebook more these days I think) but I am determined to have a celebration so let's hear it for 175,000 hits instead (almost there).  I would also like to sign up some new Followers, so if you would like to enter the drawer for my 175,000 hits celebration candy then get you name down and be a Follower (or add your name if you are already one of my loyal crew)!!
Candy will close at 6.00pm (UK BST) on Saturday 3 May.
Respectfully, the usual rules apply - genuine visitors only please


Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Ah such a sweet image and fab card hun too. i just got some new dies and embossing folders and can now see why die cutting is addictive and have just tried my hand at making an aperture card(not posted yet) but love this postage die effect and will have to save some pennies for this cute rubber too. Why is there always so many cute images available in rubber and not enough pennies to give them a home lol. for your blogaversary and so many visitors too.

What a cute little sleeping kitty. When I first saw your card, I thought kitty was nestled in a box of facial tissue and this was a get well card... although I'm not sure how it goes to blow one's nose on cat fur infused tissues (well, I do know how it goes, it doesn't help the cause any). Cute card and what a nifty aperture!

Faith A said...

What a great die cut to use with the piccie, clever girl!

You don't need to talk much Squirrel, your cards say it ALL.

Hope you feel better soon.
