Little Claire's July Club Stamp

I can't believe that we're into July already - the month when the kids will have completed another year at school and I will have the joy of being another month older (and definitely more in to the mid forties zone - yuk!!!) Luckily we seem to be enjoying a bit if Summer weather here in MK at the moment and it is forecast to be the same for the rest of the week. I love a bit of sunshine and the opportunity to wear T hirts and flipflops (which doesn't happen very often as I am a bit of a cold body!) - so long may the good weather continue!

Anyway, enough of the general waffle and time to reveal the July Club Stamps from Little Claire's. This time it's a real cutie, and it fits right in with that lovely summer weather we're having........

The set consists of the hedgehog, with his cute little Hankie hat, the sentiment stamp and  the flower bed which you can see in the background. I 've actually stampped the backgorund twice in a row on this example so you can see that it's really good for repeat stamping as it's not obvious that you have used the same stamp in a repeat fashion.

For this example I've dragged out the watercolour paper and pencils for a change, and I quite like the soft effect  on these delicate little stamps.

I hope you like this sample - I will have another one to show you another day.

In the meantime, I'm going to enter this card for the CES challenge this week, which is Woodland Creatures. You can find the challenge here:

And a couple of other challenges too:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Here comes' the Summer

If you fancy this stamp, or any other of the Little Claire lovelies, you can find them at their website, here:

Thanks for looking, and I hope you all have an enjoyable Sunny Sunday.
