Yep I had another of those “moments” this weekend. It’s funny now, it wasn’t then lol. I had stamped out this sweet Baking with Nana image (another stamp that has been neglected for well over a year!) and had coloured it in all ready to go on the card when clever clogs here decided to stamp the sentiment out ……… and dropped the ink pad on the image!!! Just what you don’t need when you are trying to churn out as many Christmas cards as you can! There was no way I was colouring it again – I had spent ages faffing on with the distress inks (I am getting to dislike these more and more lol) and the black ink pad had fallen on the little girl sat on her stool so I salvaged what I could by cutting around the grandma and popping her on a new piece of card. The things we do to save a bit of card rofl.
The gorgeous vintagey papers are GCD Joyful Peace – OMW these papers are sublime! Love the rich deep colours. The flat gardenia is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
The border punch is a Martha Stewart around the page set – Combo Cherish that I got from Oyster Stamps. I am SO impressed with them – their prices are fantastic, P&P is free if order is over £20 and it arrives the next day too. I ordered it a couple of weeks back (but ordered the wrong one DURR), phoned them to explain and they put the correct one in the mail for me and I had to send the incorrect one back. Well, super efficient (NOT!!!!!!!!!) Royal Mail nicely went and lost the replacement. No trouble to the lovely girls at Oyster Stamps, when I phoned them they put another replacement in the mail for me next day special delivery. Now how is that for service!!! I just had to mention this as they went out of their way to help. Toot toot Oyster Stamps, you really are a brilliant bunch of people!
That’s it from me today, one more day at work then I’m on me jollies for a couple of weeks, can’t wait!!
