Cheers!

Hello peeps! I hope you are having a great week. I decided this morning to take this Friday and Monday off work for a long weekend so mine has just got better! I also found out earlier this week that I've been chosen to be a guest designer for next month's Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge blog! I've seen the challenge already and I can't wait! No more said...

Today I pulled out a stamp that - I'm embarassed to say - have never used. I bought it last year some time, but as I was still finding my style, was scared to use it! Yeah, daft but I wanted to do it justice so I put it away and promptly forgot about it! I remembered it when my blog mate, Lisa J, told me that Kerry, owner of Ladybug Crafts Ink, was looking to set up a DT. If you're interested in joining her DT, click here for details. In the meantime, here is my card using the fabulous Winestool Nikki. Now I am often on wine stools, but never with a flat tummy like that!!

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and took my colour inspiration from the Sweet Stampin' challenge "pretty in pink". I'm also entering it into Paper Sundaes challenge #30 to use metal (the label holder and brads).


I'll be back with another card tomorrow. Behave yourselves for now (if you want to be boring, that is! :)


Papers/cardstock: Bazzill grey and black cardstock, Bazzill vanilla bling cardstock
Stamps: Ladybug Ink
Winestool Nikki and It's Only Words 2 sentiments
Mediums: Copic Ciaos, Glamour Dust
