In trouble again

No not me the little boy in the image. Isn't he adorable,he looks sad but only because he's been caught and made to stand by the wall instead of running around with the other boys.
This stamp "in trouble again" arrived this morning ,along with another called "half time", they are paintbox poppets stamps,released by crafters companion ,the artist (so talented ) is Christine Haworth.
I ordered them from Joanna Sheen ,with some ez mount,great stuff for stampers, and while they where on special,some of those new fine nibs you can add to your promarker pens. They are in packs of 3 ,I ordered 4 packs as they are only £1.49 each. Would I recommend them a big yes.
I coloured my image with promarkers. The oval is a nestie,the papers we r memory keepers,travel light.The red twine effect is red embroidery twill.

Well 1st of May today,I can see plenty of pink and white blossom ,the stuff that blows along the paths my son and I call wendy comfort,this was because when he was a little boy ,we walked past a church where there had been a wedding, confetti and an empty box of it lay on the ground, "look " said Sam "wendy comfort", and the name stuck. So we have the May blossom, can we please have some May sunshine!

happy crafting. janex
