Candy Stripes

Where did the last week go? I don't seem to have had time to do anything much. I did manage a bit of time for Saffa's latest dare over at DCM though, and I double dared myself to keep using birds for it!


I just adore these Mellow papers, I think I'm going to have to get the collection pack before they get too hard to find over here. The bird stamp is the same as before and the sentiment is A Muse. I bought it recently with a few other stamps in a final clearance of one of the two Bricks and Mortar craft shops in Montrose. Its a real shame to see it go but there is just so much competition out there in the craft market now, and with the net we've all become really savvy shoppers, but nothing beats actual shopping where you can see for real what you're getting. The branch is hand cut as is the wave and the edges are inked.

I've been tagged too but thats going to have to wait til later. I'm being used as target practice by the RAF jets and the cats are going crazy!
