Pollycraft Cards - Finally!

POLLYCRAFT STAMPS

It's been an awful start to the week, both my children really poorly with some kind of bug and the cold. Soaring temperatures and throwing up have meant I have had very little time to craft, which has been driving me mad. My new pollycraft stamps arrived monday and only last night did i manage to get the adorable images stamped up. I spent the evening colouring and this morning have finally managed to put 4 cards together. I just adore these cute little children, their ears are what appealed to me the most!!

Can you believe these stamps came about by Paula not being able to sleep!! I wish i could produce something as great as this when i can't sleep. All i manage to produce are nice suitcases beneath my eyes!!!!

I have managed to do some blog hopping, but i am behind with my emails, but i will get round to answering them today. It's the first day Jasmine has come downstairs so hopefully i will be able to do some more crafting before she demands my attention.

I still can't understand why im getting this layout, i must have touched a button somewhere, but im damned if i know which one!! if anyone has any ideas please let me know
































Now all thats left to do is ink up the remaining 3 Pollycraft stamps and then my new sugar nellies. Fingers crossed i managed to do that today. Hugs for now Linda x

The settings under 'post' then 'edit' help you to put the images back to the left so the writing doesn't spill round it. Let me know if you get stuck :)
To be honest your blog looks beautiful anyway!!
