get well soon

I mentioned that I've been playing with some stamps that I've purchased, but never had the chance to use.  I've been collecting some of the Wild Rose Studio stamps for a while now, but I think I've only used one before now!  Wild Rose Studio is a company from the UK.  I buy their stamps from Lacey at Stamp and Create.

This adorable image is called Get Well Toby.  I stamped him on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink.  Then, I colored him with copic markers and cut him out.  I die cut the circle and used a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Teeny Trees stamp set.  Then, I sponged some antique linen distress ink around the edge edges of the circle while it was still in the die.  I used some patterned papers from Echo Park's This & That Charming paper pad and added some green buttons and cappuccino baker's twine.

Thank you for sticking around while I took some time off from stamping.  I know I haven't been creating much to share this year.  I appreciate those of you who chose to keep following my blog.  I love hearing from you so don't be shy! :)

Have a great weekend!

Hi Nicki,

Lovely to see you back crafting more often. Don't worry about the absences it happens to us all. Life has to go on and other thing take priority on occasion. I have been absent alot myself of late, but I always love to find time to come over and see your lovely work.
I hope life is being good to you. Best wishes Linda x
