What a surprise - I spent it in the craft room messing about and I made a couple of ATCs 'Do you believe in Fairies', I was playing with my new TH embossing folder I got in the Sizzix sale just after Christmas. I ran plain card through it and then inked up my brayer and ran it very gently over the top of the raised card. I rather liked the background effect it made so I cut it into ATC size and inked up a separate image of a fairy from Beeswax Rubber Stamps and coloured it in with Copic pens added a bit of bling in the form of stickles and added it to the ATC using foam pads. The saying also comes from Beeswax Rubber Stamps. In fact in my previous post I attributed the Silver Birch Stamp wrongly I'm sorry if you went looking for it but you will find it at Beeswax - I hope it didn't cause any problems to anyone.
I'd like to enter this in:-

I then went on to play with a new addition to my craft stash - isn't it so cute - I love this Penny Black Stamp the cat reminds me so much of our old cat Paddy who was a real character and I imagine he is up there swinging on his own star now (he died a little while ago but I still miss him). When I picked this stamp up in our local craft shop in the bargain bin - I couldn't believe my luck:-) Anyway I stamped and coloured him in using copics then I used my MS Round The Page heart punch to create the mount added a background rosebud paper from Magnolia and some pink cotton drill ribbon with some shocking pink sheer ribbon down the middle topped with three pink hearts. I added a sentiment and a heart cut with my Sizzix with lots more stickles to add a bit of bling.
