Not a new card but..

At least I'm posting something!

This card was made before my recent crafting hiatus, with a lovely new stamp from Susana loves Stamps, which I got from Quixotic Paperie I love all the stamps in the 'oddly sweet curiosities' range, they just make me smile - hence the card, and as it's hump day, I thought this may help to get us all through the day.

I coloured him with spectrum noirs in the pointillism style, I just thought it added to the oddness of the image.  The sentiment is from a set of ticket stamps by Whimsy Stamps which I also got from Quixotic (just love that shop & she is very efficient at getting your order out too).  Everything else is from my stash.

Anyway, hope you like - I am trying to work on some new stuff, but getting back into crafting is difficult - Ooh, I have bought a new toy to help though, a Fiskars Stamp Press, I bought the big one because I thought I would need it that big but it's HUGE!!  Having said that though, it is amazing and I really think it will help a great deal with stamping, don't get me wrong I like my rock-a-blocks, but this thing is just fab and if I'd had it first, I probably wouldn't buy any other blocks, you just wouldn't need them.

Anyway, must go & get ready for work - TTFN
