In 7th Heaven

It's the weekend at last, whoooooooooo!!  Phew, what a week.  I didn't tell you that I nearly killed myself on Tuesday night did I?  I know I can be a bit of a klutz at times but that episode took the biscuit.

Anyhoo, in 7th Heaven (or possibly 14th), as my latest batch of lovely and yummy rubber has arrived from the cuteness factory that is Lili Of The Valley.  And I think I have a new favourite Christmas stamp (yeah, another one).

This is James: Santa Stop Here (love him to bits!)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Backing papers are Bo Bunny Double Dots Vintage
The matting layers are simply white card edged with China Blue ProMarker
Woodware (at least I think it is) border punch
Martha Stewart snowflake punch
Blue pearls from stash
And a Hero Arts "Merry Christmas" stamp

I know I have used a LOT of the Bo Bunny papers lately but they are so gorgeous.  This orange reminds me of a thick and sticky marmalade.  Not sure how well the photo shows the graduation in colour but IRL it is fabulous.

Well, I hope you like this James the Bear, because I got all five of the new ones, and will be getting the older ones out of their safe place very soon.  You may be seeing more of James than is healthy, lol

No plans for the weekend, I intend to be resting lots to try and shake off the after effects of the Tuesday incident, or Mothgate as it has become known, and get lots of crafting done.  Have yourselves a super one, whatever you are up to.

Furry hugs
Squirrel xx

This is so lovely sweetie. Gorgeous colouring. Love the papers. I was about to order the set but then remembered I am going away for a few days and our postman leaves everything hanging out of the door.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
