I have another card to share with you today - it is so wet outside that I cannot get any weeding done so what comes next.....crafting. Bu##er the HW!

I have kept this one very simple - ordered this stamp yesterday along with some goodies for a special friend of mine so I hope she got hers today too!
I used my new Prismas to colour but just have a question or two for any users of these fab pencils - do you have a stump for each colour? and also how do you sharpen them (stumps I mean) or do you sharpen them at all?  Thanks so much in advance for everyone's help in my purchase of these pencils - am waiting for my birthday so I can instruct my family how to buy them from Tony!!

Raven rubber stamp from Funky Kits;
Ribbon & Buttons from stash (buttons from a fab shop in NE Scotland (Keith to be exact) - its a DIY store that has a mahussive range of buttons thru the back - dont think they have a website but must check this out again);
Bunting is from a freebie stamp set from Mollie Bloom range and
Sentiment is from Personal Impressions set.

I am entering this into the following challenges:~
CES Bunting, Banner or Flags;
Sentimental Sunday Birthday and
Everybody Art Blue and Brown.

Bye for now folks.


  1. Gorgeous card. Great image and love the sentiment. Brilliant colouring.

    I use an ordinary nail board file and its best sharpen dry rather than wet. It would be ideal if we have a stump for each colour. Hope that helps.
