Sunday Stampers on a Saturday!!! Parisien Postcard

Happy Crafting Afternoon to all you lovely Crafters.

Yes.  I know I am blogging on a Saturday which is not "normal" for me but due to a series of events I am actually  home and now in my Crafting Room on a Saturday afternoon.  It is a bit of a strange deal for me to be home on a Saturday as I am usually having to get up and rush off somewhere - either Cropping or Quilting and today should have been one of those days but unfortunately the Crop I usually go to was cancelled, then Plan B was scuppered when my Buddy found she could not come up due to logistics, so I found myself having an easy morning with no alarm clocks, huge cuppas with bacon butties with Hubby before going into town for a little wander.  Very strange but very nice!

Well, today's posting I had planned to do last night, but decided instead to spend the evening clearing my room a little of stuff which I no longer need e.g. old magazines, so that I could post my little Sunday Stampers offering today.  In case you do not know what I am on about with Sunday Stampers click HERE and you will be whisked over to Hels' blog where she issues a Sunday Stampers Challenge.  But not before you have had a peek at my little piece please!

This I have call "Parisien Postcard". 

The theme this week is Paris and as I bought some new stamps and dies at Paperartsy (I know you are sooo shocked!!)  last week which tied in with this week's theme I just had to join in (still cannot believe that was a week ago as I am still floating on Cloud 8 1/2 at the moment!)

The flower die and stamp in the bottom right corner are from Paperartsy as well as the tape measure in the middle and the cogs on the borrom left.  The birds were from my new set from Tim Holtz bought from QVC recently.  The Tissue Tape was one of the ones Tim Holtz allowed us to take off the table at The Event last week. 

Ingredients: -
Canvas board - The Works; DI - Antique Linen, Aged Mahogony (my new fav!), Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Fired Brick;  Tim Holtz - cogs, tissue tape; Sticker - Cavallini; ribbon; lace; Stamps - Paperartsy, Tim Holtz, Cavallini; wire; wool.

Hope you like it and please feel free to leave me a comment.  I do love to read them. 

Happy Crafting Weekend!
