My first Gerda

Hello chaps!  Late in the day for me, I know, but having had the washing machine plumbed and plugged in for the first time in two weeks I have had a frantic morning loading and unloading it and the tumble dryer, desperately trying to reduce the size of Mount Dirtysocks.

We've got the builders in, turning part of our garage into a functional utility area, and the estimated two week job is now about to roll into week four.  So nearly there, but not quite.  It's becoming quite frustrating!

Anyhoo, I had some very happy mail this week - I placed my first order with Gerda Steiner and with ultra fast delivery I am now the proud owner of a set of her brilliantly cute stamps.  Thank you Gerda, it might have been my first order but it won't be my last.


How could I resist?

So this adorable little chap and the accessory stamps are all from the Gerda Steiner
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are all Maja Designs - Walking In The Forest
Hello die from Mama Elephant
Leaf dies from Lawn Fawn

I used five of the stamps from the set, the squirrel, the stump, the acorn, and two leaves.
I had to mask the squirrel's feet for the placement of the stump, I think it looks ok

This happy little chap with his guilty look really makes me smile.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Sweetie, he looks amazing; your masking is perfect. I usually have 50:50 luck with masking so may need some lessons! I love him, and he's coloured with your usual perfection in the shading. Love the stamped leaves matching the dies too. That set was made for you hun.
