The next pic is a cupboard that I had made for my daughter Charlotte's playfood - but seeing as she got a new fancy play-kitchen, I stole the cupboard to use for my "few" stamps I have....seeing it like this makes me go WOW!
The sketch below is this weeks challenge:
I woke this morning feeling a bit yucky - recovering from the flu and feeling the effects of being a woman...happy happy joy joy!!!! I buried myself in my craft desk and this is what I surfaced with about 2hrs later!
Cardstock: Kraft, Baja Breeze, Whisper White (embossed courtesy of Browny again!) and Chocolate Chip

It's taken me a while, but I've just cottoned onto covering things with paper (instead of material that I once would've done). So here, I've made mum a craft-pen box/holder/thingy - I showed her the paper the other day and asked her if she liked this paper, she hesitated, so I said "you better like it.....!"...lets hope she likes it!

Stamps: A Rose Is A Rose, Best Yet
Sunday, November 8, 2009
The 2 Very-Vanilla squares have been screwed up into a tight ball several times then spread back out again to give a crumbled, "loved" look (as well as the Really Rust strip behind). I have used Close To Cocoa with a Sponge Dauber to gently soften the edges etc and I have clear-embossed the Close To Cocoa birthday greeting. Hope you like it!
