I demand a recount.....

Morning Folks!
Can anyone tell me how it is Thursday again, this last week seems to have gone so fast and it doesn't seem like 5 minutes since I posted about the last CRAFT challenge!!

Anyway, this week we'd like to see you


We have 3 great sponsors for this challenge, so lots of chances to win a great prize!!

DigiDarla and Digital Stamp Club

Floppy Latte Designs

Now, I have to confess I am a BIG fan of Bugaboo stamps because they make me laugh, so I decided to use Gus Birthday Recount, I just love the grumpy old bloke attitude - I'm sure we have all met someone like this!!  I was also brave with this card and broke into a new paper pad, My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Boy, which has previously only been stroked and admired - finally plucked up the resolve to actually use it!! Does anyone else have that trouble???

Here's a closer look at that stare!! If the light was a bit better you could see the glossy accents on his glasses and the balloon. In real life it does add something - honest!!

Thanks for looking today and hope you can join us over at CRAFT this week!!
