Blogging Buddies

Wednesday, 2 June 2010


Morning everyone.  Scheduled post today as am travelling to Norfolk today for a weeks camping trip.  Emily and Ethan are BUZZING with excitement, and I get to try out my new swimming cozzie with built in Bridget Jones knickers rofl.  We're meeting up with my mum and stepdad along with some step brothers and their families - so we'll be the quiet ones on the site lol.  I'm taking my lappy but NO card stuff as I plan to chill and catch up on all my blogging buddies and do some serious blog hopping - providing my dongle works.

Today we have the third Secret Crafter manga stamp released this week and available exclusively from the Secret Crafter shop.  This one's a beauty and a real pleasure to work with - it was the first one I did, I just couldn't resist it..

"   P O O R   B O Y "


Sat with shoe laces undone and holding his apple he's just so adorable.  I coloured him with watercolour pencil and sansodor and used basic grey papers all available from the Secret Crafter shop.   Card stock, ribbon and dew drop was from stash. The sentiment was done on my laptop.

These stamps are a treat to work with - clear, self clinging and with a very clear outline.  The detail and quality is superb.

Check out the creations from the rest of the Design Team using this stamp on the challenge blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting.
