Piling it On!

Good morning everyone! Hope everyone is well today and having a happy day so far! The postie has just been and brought me my woj stamps, that is like speed of light delivery-I only ordered them Thursday afternoon. Fantastic service or what, can't wait to ink those little lovelies up!

Todays card is using the sketch at Truly Scrumptious, which is a really fab one-they also wanted us to use our unused stash. So ...I've used some Basic Grey boxer papers that I've had for ages and never used, and the buttons are like 2 years old and I've not used even one from the pack! I'm also entering this over at Pile it On who want to see at least 4 buttons, Charisma who have an open challenge of anything you like and the Crafty Pad who want to see buttons too! Phew!

Stuff: Sugar Nellie stamp (Mary Hall) coloured with Promarkers, Basic grey Boxer collection, Core'dinations card, sewing machine, buttons from stash, distress inks, distressing tool.

I just want to say thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful comments I've been left recently-they really mean a lot to me, and I know it shouldn't matter and that the main thing is I enjoy what I do but it's really nice to have validation that you like my work! I was so made up at having got the top 3 at Pile it On yesterday-I've never got anything like that before! Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment if you're popping by so I can come visit you too! Huggles xxx
