Stamp Something Birthdays


Hi everyone, What a weekend we've had here, the electric was on and off all day yesterday with the storms, the younger one's didn't like it at all, thank goodness I love candles and had a huge supply on hand. I'm still off the cigarettes, Yay for me, It has been difficult and at times felt like bursting into tears, sounds silly doesn't it? I'm stronger throught the day than I am in the evening but playing 'Viva Pinata' has helped lol. Well, I have treated myself to some 'Distress Inks' I only have a couple so far but plan to build my collection and I love them, I coloured this little guy while the electric was on last night and although the colours aren't what I would usually use for the forever friends bears, I love the effect, not bad for my first time with these inks I thought. I have made this card for the Stamp Something Challenge, the theme this week is 'Birthdays'. Right, off to do some shopping, hope your all having a wonderful weekend, catch ya later.x

Gorgeous card honey & your wee bear looks perfectly coloured to me... just think those new distress inks really didn't cost you anything as you would just have smoked the money over the last few days... just think how many more you will be buying over the coming months....

Great use of those card blanks too: I bought a box ages ago and have found them hard to match colours up with but this looks great :)
