Aaaahh Where Did Friday Morning Go!!!

So, the washing's unwashed, the house looks like we've been burgled, and here I am sat at the computer :o) This is my entry to The Stampman's Oriental challenge. I'm not really a fan (no pun intended lol) of oriental, so all this stuff is really old (when I bought whatever was 'in' whether I liked it or not) I do quite like this stamp, it's by Stamp Camp and they do the best background stamps, and they're HUGE!  The backing papers are from an old C&C set when it was POTD. I've coloured my ladies in alcohol ink, but you can't really see 'cos of the photo 'cos we've had no sun for weeks apart from when I've been at work. -  If I knew where to find emoticons there would be one of me jumping up and down looking very angry 'cos I've SO had enough of living in the dark!
Rant over (phew)... the tassel is from Joanna Sheen, and my favourite bit is the brad - made it miself yer know (ok with the help of the papermania brad maker). This is a terrific set and really easy to use. You get the punches and the sticky bits, and lots of brads - love it!
For far far better examples check out the Stampman site.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.
