Y is for........


"We would like you all to dig out one of the first stamps you brought from the bottom of your craft box and give it a new lease of life." Welcome to Heidi as a Guest Designer this week *waving madly at puter* Drop by the rest of my fellow DT friends to see what scrummy delights they have made. Here is my Dt card for this week, this was one of the first stamps I ever bought and I love it. Unfortunately I took it off the wooden mount years ago and I have no idea who it's by but if you know please leave me a comment, than you muchly. the papers are yip a patchwork of papers blue from Cuddlybuddly who have fabulous new stamps in the shop (that right Sandra *wink*) definately worth a visit.

I have used a die cut nappy pin by Ellision (I think, my mum gave it to me) and the buttons are diecuts from an age ago. Here is a wee close up for you to feast your eyes on as I have raised this little cutie and his stars for effect. Coloured using prismacolor pencils and pearised paints for some sparkle. A huge thank you to everyone who joined in last weeks x is was fun seeing all your fabulous creations and hope you will join us again this week.

Now enjoy this timid pale baby card as later today I will reaveal my DT card for this weeks Cuttlebug Challenge and I warn you in advance it is not for the faint hearted.

Cardmaker of the Year Kath has fantastic and very generous candy on offer, go see.
