Make My Day

Hello.  Welcome.  Whilst visiting around the blogosphere yesterday I came across Freshly Made Sketches, who have a slightly different take on the clean and simple genre.  They just want clean.  Now, of the two, the clean element is the one I struggle with.  When pushed, I term my style simple, rarely clean, so I thought this would be a good one to try.   And I liked the sketch.  So here's my idea


I wanted to use this Unity stamp and sentiment from the Call me I'll Laugh at You set.  So  searched my pp stash for a paper with telephones on it.  Nuffink!!  Then I decided to stamp my own.  DIY time.  I used various Colorbox inks and repeatedly stamped the telephone on white paper.  I cut a Cheery Lynn English Teaparty Doily and angel wing and also found some pretty pp that coordinated.  I added a piece of purple glitter tape and stamped the sentiment on a round of card.  I also made a shrink plastic telephone using the same telephone stamp.  Ain't it cute.
