Smart Cookie

Now then, I thought I was being a smart cookie taking a day off work for Friday 13th - not that I am superstitious or anything but it never hurts to play it safe does it.  All was going well, until I got out a new set of dies that were all tagged together with those little bits of wire.

I couldn't find the wire cutters so, as I have done before, I reached for my sturdy scissors.  It's amazing how much finger can be snipped with those scissors.  The wire cut quicker than I anticipated and the scissors managed to take a rather large chunk out of the knuckle of my left index finger!

Anyhoo, the day did improve as the postie delivered my new Tiddly Inks stamps and I just had to play.

So this little cutie is
Tiddly Inks - Smart Cookie Wryn
Coloured with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and with Polychromos Pencils for her hair
Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted
Stitched scalloped border is Lawn Fawn
Paper is LOTV/Nitwits Solid Promises
Chocolate Chip pearls are from Crafty Devils

Hope you have a super weekend.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Oh dear Squirrel - what a disastrous start to the day…you are miking me think that crafting might be the next extreme sport - lol!

I hope the dies were worth the pain (I am sure they were!)

I love your tidily inks card - she is just beautiful. I am a big fan of Tiddly Inks but only have digi images so far - I might have to treat myself to some actual stamps methinks!

There's no blood splatter on the card so it all must be well and good then. Any event with a cookie that large has to be good!!!!
