SS171: The Crafts Meow

Hi everyone!

Just popping by to share my Sketch Saturday #171 DT card.

As it's the first Saturday of the month, it's DT week and this month it's the lovely Lisa's turn to set the sketch.  Not only is Lisa our hostess with the mostess, but her darling shop The Craft's Meow (don't you just love the name!) is sponsoring this week's challenge! Yay! If you enter you will be popped into the draw to win a TCM stamp of your choice, and let me tell you they are AWESOME!!

Lisa very kindly allowed me to choose a stamp to use for today (thank you SO much Lisa!) and I just had to pick Little Frieda at the Seashore. This is such a darling stamp set, and I must say it is fabulous quality!  I don't own many clear stamps, and the ones that I do own don't really like Memento ink, but this one stamped perfectly first time!  I also used Versafine for the sentiment, and again that worked perfectly!

I felt in the mood to make a pretty, soft card to go with this beautiful stamp, and so broke open my brand *NEW* MME Honey Cake 6x6 paper pad that I got from Kitty at My Mum's Craft Shop.  I am in love with all the new MME 6x6 paper pads - they are gorgeous!

And speaking of My Mum's Craft Shop, Kitty is holding a FREE UK P&P weekend this weekend - woo-hoo! - so now is the time to stock up!!  Be quick though, as the free P&P offer ends tomorrow at midnight!

Here is a list of supplies I used, should you wish to do a little retail therapy:

Core'dinations 12x12 Colorcore cardstock
Bakers Twine (from My Mum's Craft Shop)
Brads, paper distresser, paper sander

Thanks so much for popping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
