Brand New Fabbytastic Stamp

Guess what arrived here today??? Only my new
Sugar Nellies Home Grown Santa stamps from Funky Kits!!
I only ordered them yesterday as well!! So I thought I would put them to good use and do a challenge - like ya do lol xxx

This is my card for this week's Ismaki challenge which is based on a sketch. The papers are Funky Hands Funky Little Christmas and that red paper I found in my 12 x 12 box which shouldn't have been there (see previous post lol xx). The ribbons are Raspberry Ribbons and a tiny bit I found in the bottom of my ribbon stash. The green has not showed up at all well here and it actually looks a lot nicer in real life.

Finally here is a quick peek at another gorgeous ribbon from the new Raspberry Ribbons kit which I think Caroline has named after me.

It's called Fat 'n' Funky lol xxx

The papers are PP and also Funky Fairy's Blue Christmas. I really like this kit - there are some gorgeous papers in there. The image is from the new Woodware Christmas Ribbon Tree set. I am going to be using this set on the next Creative Pastimes workshop cos it is juts so yummy - I love it.

And finally, some sad news ......

The pink hair is gone - I am now just brown.

Well not just any old brown, oh no!! Velvet brown if you please!!!

By L'Oreal, cos I'm worth it lol xxx

My badger- like roots were practically down to my ears and I couldn't wait to get an appointment, so for the first time in **** years (actually, the first time ever in my entire life) I got me a home dye your hair, hands, towel and bath kit. And Emma put it on for me using an old pastry brush. Well it wasnt old but it's sadly now gone to pastry brush heaven , but it's gone with the most amazing tan!!!. She has done a great job as well and we both like it, but I am missing my lovely pink highlights.

They may well return. A bit like me tomorrow xxx

oh you do make me laugh...only you could get everybody giggling about changing the colour of your hair and I do love that stamp absolutely fabby.
I love to read everybody else's comments and I just about had a fit when I read Jacqui (cat's whiskers) misread the bit about the pro Markers and had visions of you colouring your hair with there's a thought.
What did you I'm worth it.

Dawn said...

These cards are "awesome" matey!!
I'm lovin' the ribbon tree will have to investigate!!
I too am a box dye gal!!
The grey is terrible - runs on my mums side I'm afraid..
Used to have pink hair too but the upkeep of it was horrendous AND expensive!! GRR!!


Bev said...

I was in two minds whether to order these today - tanks for spending MORE of my money hunny!!! Love love love the card, brilliant! Mind you I love the ribbon tree as well, how clever is that!!

Did you have to mention hair colour (or lack of in my case - them grey hairs are screaming out for a bit of L'Oreal!!!)
