Promises? No promises....

Ever buy a stamp/die/other craft item, get it home & wonder how you're going to use it?  Then it sits looking at you for three years, making you feel terribly guilty.......Yeah, me too!

I think the basic problem is the style of the stamp is a long way away from my style.  However it's good to get out of your comfort zone, right?

This 'three years in the making' card is just to let you know we have a SHABBY CHIC challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and we'd love to see what you create.

I'd love to play along with the Retro Rubber challenge who want to see flowers.  As mentioned this stamp is at least three years old, I purchased it at a craft show & it sticks in my mind because another trader made a bitchy comment about the manufacturer after i'd bought it.  As I say, you can't like everyone in the world but you do have to co-exist & tolerate one another.

Hope you all have a lovely day,

So, no-one told you life was gonna be this way

Time for another challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week we want to see CATS and/or DOGS.  I apparently don't have many cat stamps so I dug out this gorgeous dalmation instead.  He's from a company that makes the most wonderful realistic dog stamps of practically every breed, I'm just having a little trouble remembering the name....

I teamed him with spotty papers from Stampin' Up & this fab sketch from SSW2.

Here's me playing along with some lovely challenges:

Fussy and Fancy 186 - Anything Goes
Seize the birthday - Anything 'Birthday' Goes

 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - Fab Sketch

The Male Room 59 - Many Legs

So, what's on the agenda this weekend?  Well, not much for me.  Lots of housework, a couple of cards and hopefully a nice walk if it stops raining!  Hope your weekend is a good one xx
