Hamish fixing his tractor

Morning Folks!
Long time no see I know, but things have been a bit mad here lately. I'm having my kitchen gutted and altered so at the moment I have no floor or ceiling and wires dangling everywhere - I just keep telling myself it will be lovely when it is finished!! On the positive side, it is the perfect excuse to hide away in my craft room and play. Talking of playing, the new challenge starting at Sweet Stampin' this week is 


I had a rummage through my stash and this is what I came up with, quite pleased because everything is pretty old:

The stamp is a very old Sugar Nellie one called Hamish Fixing Tractor which I bought in the sale years ago just because it was cute, then like a lot of things it got put in the drawer and has only just seen daylight again. I think it has now been discontinued. The papers are K&Co Hopscotch and the embossing folder is 'replacements' by Couture Creations. I've no idea where the sentiment came from, it could be a magazine freebie but I'm not sure??

Thanks for popping by today and for any comments you leave, I love reading them! 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Inky Chicks - Use a metal embellishment
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Build it up
Dream Valley - Embossing (wet or dry)
A Gem of a Challenge - Brithday Wishes
The Sugar Bowl - Anything goes with a sugar nellie image

Now I'm off for a nice cup of tea with bonus brick dust!!

    We have just had our kitchen re-done, with building alterations too, it was a mess, but as you said, a perfect excuse to escape to your craft room, not much point in running around with hoover and polish is there lol :-) I am sure it will be worth it in the end :-)
