Little Winged Friends - My Garden

Hello friends... yep, I am still here and it is still very much Winter in Cape Town... cold and rainy weather but I'm not complaining.

Just had to share this sweet little Bildmalarna stamp, called Little Winged Friends - My Garden, which arrived all the way from the USA this week. I was getting worried that it would not turn up at all... took about 8 weeks to get here... so don't you dare complain if your parcels arrive later than a week or 2... hehehe  My dear friend Sandra was shocked when I told her I was waiting so long and commented that the parcel had probably taken the scenic route to South Africa! hahaha

I just had to ink, stamp and colour her in.  Tried some different flicking strokes, hope it shows...  The stamp is what I purchased with the gift certificate another dear blogfriend Lins sent me from one of my favourite online stores... so, if you're reading this Lins, thanks again so very much!

I just love her to bits and have another cute Mimosa lying in one of my CD cases that I need to dust off and use again. Seeing this little stamp just made me realise how cute they are.

Thanks for popping by and if you'd like to leave a comment, that would be great!  2 DT cards coming up this weekend and 1 next Tuesday, so keep watching this space... We'd love you to take part in our challenges.

A very warm welcome to some new blogfriends that have decided to join my blog. Thanks so much.

Happy crafting!  hugs Sharon x
