Poppy Tilda

Here is the new Poppy Tilda available now at Sir Stampalot she`s a real cutie and I just had to get her inked and coloured as soon as I got my hands on her yesterday!
I`ve coloured her with distress inks and markers and added a bit of stickles - icicle to the middle of the poppy and some of the flowers.
The background papers are all Magnolia as is the Doo Hickey Doily die.
Flowers are Hobby House, leaves are Nellie Snellen medium punch `n` emboss and the foliage punch is Ash Branch, all products available at Sir Stampalot.

Well I`ve been crafting up a storm today getting samples ready for Sir Stampalot and re doing some samples for Hougie Crafts as the last lot got ruined after a tea related accident on my desk a couple of days ago. I can laugh about it now but I was not a happy camper at the time. I had just finished the samples and was reaching for my camera to take some piccies when I jogged the shelf that the glass jar I use to hold water for painting was sitting on, it fell straight onto a fresh mug of tea which was sitting on the corner of my desk, split the mug into a million pieces and threw tea all over my desk! That was bad enough but as I was desperately trying to rescue all the samples which were gleefully soaking up my tea I realized that tea was seeping down the side of my desk where I keep all my large cardstock for box making. I had to pull out my drawer which holds my wood mounted stamps to clean up the tea spill,and as I did the leg on it broke and tipped the whole thing over which had my acrylic trays resting on top. I tried to grab them from spilling all over the floor and the sharp edge of the tray cut my finger open! I tell you it was like something out of a Mr Bean movie! If I had been watching this debacle unfold I probably would have been on the floor in stitches but I was steaming mad at the time!! So I now have a wonky drawer unit, a badly cut finger, a large pile of A2 size soggy cardstock and no samples to show for an entire days work! That will be the last time I have a cup of tea at my craft desk !! and it broke my favourite mug too! Ever had a bad day?

Well on that note I`ll sign off and go and have a well earned cuppa (away from my craft desk !) bye for now and happy crafting xx
