Stamp with Fun # 1 - A Sketch and some Candy!

Evening folks!

I hope you like my new look blog - I thought I'd give it a mini makeover today and choose something spring-like.

When I was blog hopping this morning I came across a brand new challenge called Stamp with Fun and when I saw the gorgeous sketch created by Saphira for the first week I knew I would have to play along. Then when I saw the Magnolia candy up for grabs that made things even more certain, lol! I like to try and support new challenges when they are starting off anyway and of course to spread the word.

This is the third of the Miss Anya stamps I've had the pleasure to ink up and I think this one is the best to paper piece. I used my yummy Marakesh papers by Basic Grey and whilst having a rummage through all my stamps I found this very sweet little cat by Auds Designs.

Image - The Greetings Farm
Sentiment - Studio G
Cat Stamp - Auds Designs
Papers - Basic Grey Marakesh
Punch - Woodware Embossing Pansy
Die - Bosscut Vine
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Mini Pearls and Gems from my stash

This really was a fun sketch to work with so hop over and see what you can do with it. I probably won't manage to get any cards done for the next couple of days now because I'm doing full days at work, but I shall definitely be hopping on and off the computer to do some blog hopping so I'll see you there!
