Make My Monday and Thanks

Good Afternoon

  First of all I would like to thank the team at AAA Cards for picking This card as 1st place!! I'm absolutely thrilled!

I noticed that the challenge at Make My Monday this week is to use your newest or most favourite stamps...
Well, look what just arrived


I know that they're Christmas stamps, but they were in the sale so I ordered them, a while ago as it happens, but they only came today and I just had to try them out...


...I mean you don't have to use them just for Christmas do you?


I did a little water colour and some splattering just to add a little interest


I never did 'cute' at one time... looks like I am becoming obsessed by little animals and even gnomes now Lol!
 
I hope you are having a good day - My thoughts go out to all of you affected by the storms and the bad weather - Please take care

Isn't it fun when new stash comes? Yes, you sure proved that you don't have to use Christmas Stamps for only Christmas as this is such a good idea. Such a fun and colourful card and congratulations on your well deserved win x

I don't see Christmas at all... I see springtime warmth and cute, cute, CUTENESS! So fun!

Sylvia said...

Very cute, Ros, I love your cute cards!

Barbara said...

Yes, cute! And as we would all like to see more of the Christmas spirit throughout the year: why not rededicate those stamps? Great idea!

Maria said...

Your cute card is so fun, Ros! Who can resist a cute card at times?! And, you colored it very well! I love it...great job!

Lisette Baker said...

Love gnomes and toadstools and as always, your beautiful background is just perfect to complete the whimsical little scene.

LOL At one time I said I never would do cute. I've learned my lesson. :-) Those stamps are so cute! The fat bears looks so warm and fuzzy and you found a perfect way to use that gnome in a non-Christmas way. Love it!
