Sneak Peek 1

Good morning everyone from a damp and dreary Norfolk. Mind you, we need the rain. I had a very successful craft fair yesterday, my best ever, and then went straight round to some friends for a lovely roast chicken dinner. Off out to the shops in a bit but before I go wanted to share a sneak peek with you. There will be a CD and set of 2 stamps from the new Paintobox Poppets range from Crafter's Companion. There has been Reddy decoupage before of some of Paintbox Poppets but we haven't had either a CD or stamps before. Check them out on Create and Craft where they will be POTW from Friday 9 March.

I have used a card companion and matching backing paper from the CD along with the cute stamp which has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs. I've heat embossed the buttons which comes as part of the card companion along with the ribbon and buckle embellishment. The sentiment is part of the stamp set and has been cut out with a Nestie.

Catch you later. Enjoy your day.
