Sweet Stampin' Birds and/or Bees

Here we are on another sunny (ha!) bank holiday Monday, There is baking going on in my house today, starting off with a quiche & following it up with a Battenburg cake, yum!

Now I must have made this card on a sunny day Spring day, look how bright & cheery he is for the Sweet Stampin' challenge of Birds and/or Bees this week.

It's a gorgeously adorable hedgie from Penny Black (that was one of my very first & most loved stamps), teamed with papers from American Crafts Neapolitan pad & topped off with a Verve sentiment.  How is it, no matter how many birthday sentiment stamp sets I own that there's never quite the right shape or size?!

I'd love to join in with the following challenges:

Allsorts - Happy Birthday
Aud Sentiments 132 - Cute + Sentiment
Amusing - Birds & Bees - TOP 3
Come and Get it - Tic Tac Toe (Designer Paper, Sentiment & 2 +Layers)
Crafty Catz - Kids
Fashionable Stamping - Old Favourites (Old/Forgotten Stamp) SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT
Penny Black at Allsorts - Dies /Punches
Penny Black Saturday - Trees/Nature
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Enjoy your day folks, I might even find time to visit a few blogs while The Deputy bakes!

Lovely stamp, fabulous design and papers, a gorgeous birthday card Abi! I know what you mean about the sentiment stamps, somehow they're never quite the right size or shape for what you had in mind....!
Enjoy the results of the baking!
