Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Challenge 5

Hi everyone, Friday and another Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenge. We have a great sketch to follow this week by my friend Sandra :D, a lovely one it is too and very popular with the DT. Hope you can join us this week and there's loads of inspiration from the Design Team to get the mojo running.

I've used my squirrel digi stamp which is now in my digi shop and has minimal watercolouring and some sponging with distress inks. Background papers are by Pebbles and the sentiment is die cut from funky foam. Added some gems and ribbon to finish. 

I just wanted to say thank you for all the lovely comments, I really do treasure them and I never seem to be able to catch up with returning them, I do try but never seem to manage it. Thank you anyway for continuing to visit and comment, it really makes my day to read them. Hope you all have some good things to do for the Bank Holiday and see you tomorrow with my BasicGrey card. TFL. Chris x
