The Stamp Basket DT - Mimo ski

I'm running late as we took the boys to spend their Christmas money.  My mum came too - she got me a pressie for my birthday and let me have it now (there's a couple of weeks until my birthday), a pretty case for my Kindle so it won't get damaged in my bag :o)  We also managed to get some extra bits for Dex's birthday without him seeing - that's on Sunday... very bad birthday planning in our family lol!

Products available from The Stamp Basket
Craftwork Cards scalloped edge card blank
Bildmalarna Mimo - ski stamp
White seam binding, dyed with distress inks
Dovecraft adhesive gems
Deco Art glamour dust in crystal

Ooh and in the next couple of days Janet will have the new Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love stamps, papers and dies in the shop!  I'm quite looking forward to having a play with some of these :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Ok, so now my paper ban is over (yippee, hurrah - 2 new paper pads on their way already lol!!!) I've been thinking about what I should do this year.  The pile of un-inked stamps and unused digis has been bothering me for a while - I just can't seem to stop myself buying them and then for some reason I don't get round to using them... and then I buy more!  I'm going to try and change that this year, so I've decided to have at least one day each week where I use an unused stamp or digi, or maybe both if I have time... on Wednesdays I think. Any ideas of what I can call my weekly 'thing'?  Maybe some of you fellow hoarders will join in with me :o)

Just brrrrrrrrilliant hun, those frosty colours are fab with the oh-so-cute image! I am a terror for stamps (not that you would guess) so I ought to join you - praps it should be called "Weed Them Out Wednesday (And Use Them)" (WTO for short). Hugs Sxx

Gorgeous!!! I love the papers xxx (can only think of something that rhymes with a Friday - Forgotten stamp Friday -lol)

Amanda said...

Hi Lisa, love the card, seems weird not seeing the paper ban at the top. I will join in with this challenge as I found some digis only today that I have had for over a year and never used. Not sure of a name for the challenge except maybe - Waste not Wednesday lol.
Hugs, Amanda xx

Hi sweetie this is such a gorgeous card I love these bildmalarna stamps they are so cute & fab to colour.
I would join in on the whole image saga as I'm soooooo bad for un-inked stamps & un-sed digi images I'm so bad I really do have at least 100 un-inked stamps & goodness knows how many un-used digi's & best of it is I've brought 12 more digi images just since new year I need help!!!!!!

What bout calling it 'Join us on a WHIM' Wednesdays hoarding image mania.......un-used images have to be at least a month old...image cud be stamp or digi.....I'm tired now n brain not thinking too well but will carry on getting my wee brain to think lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Oh my word Lisa I so love this beautiful card, I do love this selection of stamps I am also loving those wonderful papers and the colours you have used. I think that is a brilliant idea with the digi's, I have literally tons of them and forget what I have.

Hi Lisa, fab card (as always) love the colours you have used and the image is just so cute!

I'd join in with the Weds thing, for sure. Fits in with my not buying anything (much!) resolution - but no idea what to call it. I'm useless at snappy names!
