Hi everyone, hope u's all cool. some really exciting news today, as I've been invited to join the Wags 'n' Whiskars design team. Woo hoo!!! So excited cause there ACE!
If you haven't allready heard of them, they are a stamp brand making both digital & rubber stamps, all inspired by the 2 co-owners; Nikki Fairbairn & Llacet Stephens photographs of their kids & pets & brought to life by talented artist Crissy Armstrong. Theres some real crakers so be sure to pop over there & have a look, you can use this link - Wags n Whiskars store.

Theres also an exciting new release next Friday 20th May, where there will be a fantastic blog hop. I've seen some of the DT work as well as the images & let me tell you - you're in for a real treat. Theres also 2 days of sneak peaks on the Wednesday & Thursday, so be sure to pop back & check it all out.

So without further ado, as they say, onto this weeks challenge...circles. If you haven't allready come from the challenge blog - head on over there & check out the rest of the DT's creations - theres some great interperatations of the theme, heres the link - Wags 'n' Whiskars blog.


The main inspiration for this make cam from the images & my brand new Prima paper pad, which I had just fell in love with!!! I may even go as far as to say its one of my all time favourites. Such fabulous designs & I am really, really diggin the style of it at the mo, which I think has in turn effected my style in a most excellent fashion. This is the second make from this pad & they have both had a simelar feel which I'm mega pleased with (scrolldown for tht ohter post named 'Whoopsi Daisy 'Things with Wings' challenge. 

The beautiful image has every bit of quality, style & class you would expect to find in a leading rubber stamp brand, with all the conveniece & flexibility of a digi. I LOVE IT!!! - No really, I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying working with these digi images & my new Copics, which I am beginning to get the hang of now. This will be attempt 3 & this time I've tried blending colours of diferent hues.

I ordered the Copics & paper pad amongst other things from Bunny Zoe store & was v.v.v.impressed with my order. Its an internet based craft store, stocking all the leading brands, specialising in stamping, papers & much much more. Its a really trendy, bang up to date store with jaw dropping products & inspiration of how to use of the highest level. I am constantly blown away by the work from the stores desiugn team which is cleverly displayed in the side bars at the store for convenient & exciting inspiration! Defo worth checking out... Bunny Zoes Store. If you are based in Canada or the US there is a store named Stamp & Create which has simelar products, style & ultra modern feel. ENJOY!!!xx
