Stamp Something ,,, Anything !!,,,,,

Good Afternoon ,, am back with another post ,,, last one for the day !! have a HUGE pile of ironing to tackle before any crafting :-(

It is time for a new theme on the Stamp Something Challenge ,,,,

,,,,,,, ANYTHING !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Denise at Whimsey Stamps and she is offering a $15 Gift Certificate to her store :-)

Denise gave the DT a choice of any digi stamp from her store ,, there ia such a massive choice !! Something for everyone and for every occasion :-)

I chose this fab Johnny Bird Boots image from Meljen Designs,,, how CUTE is this !!! :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink . I used a Spellbinders Deckle Rectangle die, perfect for tall images. The papers are Bo Bunny and I used a Tim Holtz Burlap embossing folder to make it look like a wall ,,, I wish I had used a contrasting paper at the bottom ,,, ughugh ,, never mind ,,,, !! The flowers are from Prima and the ribbon was in my drawer. The sentiment was in the set from Jak Heaths blog to raise funds for a fellow crafter, Louise, who is fighting a battle with stomach cancer. Please pop over there and support this drive if you haven't already x x x x

I made this card for hubby's brother who has just had heart surgery,, do you think it is a bit too girly ??? ,, am having 2nd thoughts now !!! ,,,

For my card I used this fab Cupcake Treat Trio image :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The papers are Basic Grey from the Cupcake Paper pack. I used a Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch and added a few buttons and a charm too.
