Mates Share Everything!

Good morning from a bright and sunny corner of Lancashire UK! So pleased to see some sunshine after quite a lot of grey & rain this week! I seem to have posted quite a few cards this week - obviously had a productive week whilst my hubby was working away!  This card today was done with a stamp I bought recently from LOTV - and those little boys are just so cute. Reminded me of when my youngest Jack was a bit younger than he is now and always had friends here to play. He still has friends round now, but I don't see as much of them now they're teenagers lol (even though they're all a lot bigger with deeper voices)!

Don't they look sweet with their cookies and sharing a drink? 
I've coloured the stamp with promarkers and prisma pencils (as usual lol!) and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks 

The sentiment is another from the Whimsy stamps that I recently bought - and I'm loving them! There seems to be something for all sorts of occasions.  The backing papers are K&Co and Basic Grey and I've used the DooHickey 'Lovely Fence' die - another fairly recent purchase that's rapidly becoming a favourite :)

The cord and little wooden peg are from my stash - and I've got so much stuff in there, and from so long ago that I've forgotten where a lot of it comes from. I've been crafting for many years now and it's scary how much stuff us crafters accumulate!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
