Because I am weak!!

If there are two things I should not be doing right now, it's spending money and stamping! Yet, that's exactly what I did.

I totally blame my web buddy Sam for blogging about her latest stamp acquisition; which was all I needed to push me over the edge.

You see, I have a special fondness for teddy stamps, not only for their cuteness, but mostly because they are so much fun to colour! One bear that I've always liked a lot and hoped would be made into stamps is Hallmark's 'Forever Friends'. So, when Sam showcased her adorable card on her blog, I got weak, so very weak, LOL.

My own stamps arrived all the way from England last week and to avoid packing - I stamped.

In no time, I stamped and coloured a set of six cards with my new stamps. While I will indeed be busy packing, moving, cleaning, painting, re-assembling furniture and unpacking over the next few days and weeks, I will also be showing the rest of my new stamps, one by one, thanks to blog scheduler.

All six cards were stamped on Medioevals Soft White deckle-edged cards in black Memories ink and watercoloured with markers, inks and an aqua painter brush.

The Stamp:
Forever Friends/Birthday Cake - FFS 9061012H (available in the UK)

I'm not a teddy-bear person, and yet I'd love this card because it's a work of art! You're my coloring hero, even when you have other things you're supposed to be doing! :)


Glad I was able to enable you LOL, your colouring is gorgeous. Can't wait to see the rest of them. Good luck with the packing!!!!Sam
