My dear, that Hansel is a cutie!!

Hello my friends,
I hope you are having a wonderful day so far,
or evening, wherever you are!!
You might have caught a previous post of mine
where I excitedly typed on about
Marina Neira opening up her own shop,
The Stamping Bazaar
I am really excited about this new venture of hers,
I love her creative designs and cute fuzzy critters,
so when I saw Hansel, it was love at first sight.

Hansel, find him here in rubber or digi, was coloured in distress inks then cut out and adhered to an identical shadowed image accomplished with Faded Jeans distress ink, the papers are a mix of Provo Craft (floral), Websters Pages (spots) and My Minds Eye (green backing), I've distressed in Vintage Photo and added a little Star Dust stickles to his bundle of wildflowers, which I decided, for the purpose of this project, are daisies. My sentiment is computer-generated, I resisted the punny version, just this once and went for dear instead of deer. Branch punch is by Martha and and scallop is Fiskars. Sketch used courtesy of The Beary Scrap Challenge, thanks ladies, loved it!!

Have you headed over to The Stamping Bazaar Blog yet?
There's presently a design team call going on,
and talk of fun give-aways and contests,
if you are into critters and cute kiddo stamps,
you should go have a looksie!!

Well, I must be on my way!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
