Now for something different...and a challange...

Hi might want to get yourself a cuppa while reading this..its a sorry much for my New Years Resolution...'Not to buy anymore Stash'...'Stash' being DP' I don't really need any..I must have every paper pad that has been made from Basic Grey to K & Co to Doodlebug get my drift..(no snow pun intended..but yes we got more of the damn stuff today..ok..ok fed up with it now...getting a bit cabin feverish!!!! lol)...oops sorry...ok... where was I...oh yes..DP's..I have loads..and I mean loads...DB thinks I'm crazy when I drool over them...but hey..we all do it...
Now...on Monday...I was just having a little stroll around the websites...(Cutting Edge Crafts) and I happen to come across Papermania latest releases...I just thought I would have a you do...I'm not totally keen on some of their stuff but I'm trying to wean myself off Tildas for a bit ... well that little peak resulted in me buying...(shhhh don't tell...) 4 new pads...!! and one of them was 'Honey & Hugs'...they looked really pretty and I thought they would do nicely for spring and Easter...well they arrived yesterday (fab service from Cutting Edge Crafts...and no p&p!!!) and boy they are gorgeous..(and they have cute little rubber stamps and stickers and rub on thingys all to match)..some of the papers have the little characters on and I just thought well I'll see if CEC have the stamps in stock...ummm..and do you know what?..that cute little lambie one just happened to jump into my shopping basket and before you knew it he was on my doorstep this morning!!!..(thanks again CEC!!)
I just had to ink it up and make a card..or so I thought...well it was decided that he didn't look right stamped in black and so I had to improvised with silver ink and a bit of black..anyway we got there...did bit of colouring in err...grey...and then got the papers together...thought it would be fun to have one of the sheets with the lambies all over..a little bit of the lovely pink stripes ..a little bit of border punching and bit of that lovely sparkly ribbon I got from hobbycraft the other day...(opps dont tell)...maybe he'll look good on a like that..unstuck him and tried him by don't like that..unstuck him...maybe the nestie was fine after all...ummm..ok..punched flowers..card candy...a bit of sparkle..there..done...then I realised that I have covered up most of the lovely DP that I bought the rubber stamp to go with in the first place!!!...Have a look..see what I mean..

and after all that I'm not totally happy with it...but I'm going to enter it for this weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday - All New!! where's my Tildas......
