Cute Ickle Fella!


This rather cheeky little chappy is a new release Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp!
Aint he cute? The Holly is rather lovely to chop about and layer up too.

I am not going to mention the fact that it appears to have finally stopped raining here ... would n't want to jinx it or anything ... but at the moment if I glance up I can see a clear blue sky ... I say "up" because my Craft room is in the roof ... so the windows are up too ... I don't know why I told you that ... but you know what I mean ... Don't ya???
Do you remember my first Christmas card? ... weeks ago? ... the start of many? ... well that is what I said at the time ... and this is my ... erm ... third! Doh!
This card is my entry for the Sunday Stampers Challenge this week which is The Holly and The Ivy ... Do pop over and look at Hel's sample this week ... tis gorgeous!
I know some of you don't just pop in for my sparkling personality and witty rapport :0) ... so the image is coloured with Pro Markers ... the paper is from the Paper Artsy Rum and Raisin Range and the card is Bazzill. I have added a few Rock Candy Stickles but they look pretty naff in this picture ... I promise they look Ok in the flesh!
I hope you have a good day whatever you are doing ... I have an anniversary card to make and a serious amount of blog hopping to catch up on ... Have a good one!

You're right Linda, he's a very cheeky chappy and sooo cute.

Just back from my hols and doing some catching up. I see I have missed loads of lovely makes on your blog so it's great to be back to see them all.

Love the post on your beautiful daughter's graduation. Many, many congratulations to her and good luck with her Masters Degree.

I love this one, it reminds me of the early Enid Blyton illustrations, wow shot of nostalgia or what. Absolutely love it.
