theme thursday stripes


The theme at at theme thursday is stripes. I have just received this brand new mini stamp from PaperArtsy which I thought was just perfect for the theme. The background stamps are also Paperartsy. The rocks are BasicGrey paper, the back ground card is coredinations, and the image is coloured with whispers pens.


While on the subject of stripes, I am now over my fear of knitting beanie hats and I made this one for my son's teacher (as a sort of joke after she asked me to knit all those hats for the play, but also because I thought she's like it- which she did!) it is knitted in Noro silk garden, A little extravagant, but as you only need one ball, it gave me a chance to knit with a fabulous yarn and make a lovely present: win-win
