Twinkle Twinkle


I haven't played with Unity's Friends With Flair in ages so I'm excited to join in this week and especially excited to be using such a new stamp.  I find that my latest purchases tend to sit for ages before I ink them up which is really silly so I've used the star stamp from April's KOM.  It's such a sweet image and could be used for so many occasions but my first thought was for a baby card.  Handy since I needed one for a baby shower!  ;)  I've matched it up with one of my favourite Hero Arts background stamps and a Paper Smooches sentiment.  And this is another one for Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes Challenge!  


How cute is this little sheep?  I admired one that the wonderful Kirsty of 365 Days of Pinterest Creations gave away a while back and she very kindly sent me my own!  Also included were candies for Luis and I, treats for the hounds and some beautiful chopsticks that Kirsty's lovely mum brought back from her travels to visit Kirsty's sister.  If you've never checked out Kirsty's blog then you must go now!  Not only does she share a fabulous new recipe/craft/home decor/etc idea every day but her brilliant, funny family is also fully involved in the Pinterest mania.  There's never a dull moment in the Colquhoun household!  :)
