Your Special Day and Christmas Rainbows!

Hello Stamplings!

I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter weekend, although by the time I get this posted, it will no doubt be mid-week. That seems to be my new normal now as I start something and then a warm breeze blows through my meager thoughts, scattering them like moths under the street lamp. Then I’m off to gather them up, or head off in an entirely new direction! 

Eventually I wend my way back to creating and sharing. It may take me longer, but I get there in the end and here are my latest makes.

Most of you will prolly remember this stamp from the cute Penny Black set called «critter celebration.» It was very popular, just as the fabulous Anita Jeram stamps are now, and eventually I succumbed to buying the set. And then it sat because by that time I thought the interwebs had been saturated with the sweet critters. Now, with Hammy gone, I went looking for another critter to play with so this NBUS set is finally getting some love.
Using some pretty pp from SU, I paper-pieced the flower, stem, and mouse. I think I’ve mentioned before that paper-piecing is one of my all-time favorite techniques. I think it’s because it reminds me of playing with paper dolls. I remember having lots of fun making more clothes out of magazine pictures. The sediment might also be from Penny Black. Some matching mouse-colored schplattering and a wee butterfly finished the scene.

This is thinking outside the Christmas box of decorations, isn’t it? It’s like bleu cheese. You’re either gonna like it or you’re gonna hate it. Either way, this was a fun and QACAS OLC design that took only minutes to make. I used the «poinsettia row» stamp from STAMPlorations, colored with markers and spritzed. Hammy would love winking all those colors, so I left them for him to do when he gets back. (They are on the move again, so that’s good!)

A First
Normally, I put the laundry away right after folding, but the other day, I left it for a few minutes and when I came back into the room and glanced at the basket, I cocked my head to the side wondering when we acquired a sheep-skin rug.

It was just the little diva, Nellie! You will notice that she, too, needs to be laundered and thankfully she sees the groomer tomorrow!
