Sweet Stampin' Birds and/or Bees

Here we are on another sunny (ha!) bank holiday Monday, There is baking going on in my house today, starting off with a quiche & following it up with a Battenburg cake, yum!

Now I must have made this card on a sunny day Spring day, look how bright & cheery he is for the Sweet Stampin' challenge of Birds and/or Bees this week.

It's a gorgeously adorable hedgie from Penny Black (that was one of my very first & most loved stamps), teamed with papers from American Crafts Neapolitan pad & topped off with a Verve sentiment.  How is it, no matter how many birthday sentiment stamp sets I own that there's never quite the right shape or size?!

I'd love to join in with the following challenges:

Allsorts - Happy Birthday
Aud Sentiments 132 - Cute + Sentiment
Amusing - Birds & Bees - TOP 3
Come and Get it - Tic Tac Toe (Designer Paper, Sentiment & 2 +Layers)
Crafty Catz - Kids
Fashionable Stamping - Old Favourites (Old/Forgotten Stamp) SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT
Penny Black at Allsorts - Dies /Punches
Penny Black Saturday - Trees/Nature
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Enjoy your day folks, I might even find time to visit a few blogs while The Deputy bakes!

Sweet Stampin' CAS

Hi folks, i'm back again, don't fall off your chairs!  I love a bit of CAS so knowing that was the theme for team Jacky at Sweet Stampin' this week got me joining in.  That and my stock of cards needs serious rebuilding.

In the spirit of this years personal quest to use up my stash, I dug out this Papermania set of stamps. It must have been in my collection for 5+ years & never even been opened, shocking I know!  There's a rectangular frame too & I couldn't get a nice impression from it for love nor money.  Going to try filing it and if it doesn't improve it's being binned. This one however...perfect first time.

I'm playing along in the following challenges:

Simply Papercrafts - Anything Goes/CAS
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Hope to see you playing along & have a great day.
