Greg's Birthday card

Here's one hot off the press - for Greg's birthday which is tomorrow!  Me?  Last minute? Never! ;)

I've used my new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs - I've wanted square stitched dies for aaages, but didn't want to spend the £££s - so I blew a Christmas gift voucher from my friend with relish!!

My critter is a Gummiapan stamp from Swedish House Crafts
Coloured with watercolour pencils, sparkle added to the balloon and clear gloss to his eyes, teeth and feet. Centre panel popped up on foam pads. Green and red stars from stash.


Oh and I was lucky to win a Lawn Fawn shammy from Di at Pixie's Crafty Workshop - OMG - it's amazing!!
I've used this birthday stamp for years'n years and have never cleaned it ...
A quick wipe with a shammy and it turned into (sorry for blurry pic):
Thanks Di!  I promise to be a much cleaner girl ;) LOL
