Thanks Stampotique I've had a ball........

Hi lovely friends....
WoW how fast is this year going, 100mph it feels like - May on Friday already!!! Needs to warm up though!!!
So my Dad is out of the hospital thank you for all your wonderful well wishes, he's on the mend fast, fast, fast.....YeY!!!

Right - without further a do (lol love saying that :-))).......

This weeks challenge up over on the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog is Polka Dots brought to us by my looooovely friend and fabulous design team member Samantha Read - tis a really kool challenge so why not have a go - pop over to the challenge blog HERE

So for my last guest design team piece i've had a little fun.....hope you like........

Heeheehee - I just love Kate Cranes 'Queen of Everything' - such fun I had with her swinging from France Papillion's 'France's Chandelier'

And them there snazzy slippers - lol I couldn't help myself - they are from a beautiful stamp called Brown-eyed Susie by Janet Klein.

And I couldn't not go down the regal red, white and blue route without a little bunting.....I used France Papillion's Banner, it worked a treat along the side of my page.

So no royal Corgi's hahahax
But....... Magda Polakow's cat, 'Gucio Walking' fits the bill perfectly (Magda Tells me she doesn't know why the name 'Gucio', suits him fine thought don't cha thinks......especially wearing that 'Crown' by Jo Capper-Sandon.

 And this is where I had my fun as I've literally got the queen talking to 'Philip' her hubby,as the dude holding the 'Balloons' is a stamp called Philip, for real lol.....and I've got him wearing the tiniest of crowns - from Agatha Crown, he's borrowed it.......

 And the final stamp I used was........'Proof of Fun' taken from France Papillion's Barcode Text

I used bookpages, paints, washi tape, Faber Castell Polychromos, Copic pens, and my /PanPastels to create this fun page in it's full glorious red white's and blues, well ok theres a touch of yellow and a beige tint or 5 in there too hahaha x

So if you looooves stampotique stamps - hop over to their shop to spy more and buy - HERE of try over at Art from the Heart (where i shop a lot, yes far toooo much heeheehee but it makes for a happy Kassa;-)))) - go peep there HERE.....

Right - I'll loves ya and leaves ya - my red wine is a calling (not tea for a change cos it's wine 'O clock....)

Kassa xoxo
