Good morning all.

Well, the weather is a little hit and miss today - sun, cloud, rain, thunder lol - we are getting it all. No wonder a lot of people are getting poorly, including me :( - haven't been feeling 100% for a week now but getting better.

So, if you are a visitor to my blog you may remember that I am re-storing my rubber and cateloguing my stamps - both rubber and digis - and I am feeling quiet ashamed of all the stamps I have and never use. So I have been thinking about a way to start using them (and yes, it will take like foreva!!!) and came up with the idea of a Showcase Day, which is now gonna be on Tuesdays. I will just start from A and work my way to Z, so the stamp compnies/artists I have in my collection.

So, here is my first showcase .......

...... I do believe this is from 2008/9 from Alota Stamps. Oh my word - I wanted this set of 6 donkies so bad but it was completely sold out. When I finally got it home I think I used it once and they have been in my "non-organisation-box" since. What do you think? Isn't this one just adorable?!

Materials used: Donkies (plate 2) from Alota Stamps - cardstock - Jillibean designer paper - ribbon - Hero Arts "Heartfelt Messages"


Alotarubberstamps challenge - use animals
Cute card Thursday - For the boyz
Dutchdare-cardchallenge - Spring has sprung
Waste not Wednesdays - Use something old (my stamp?)

Thank you for visiting and have a fab day. Hugs, Mette

This is so cute! Love that image and great colours too. I do exactly the same with stamps - I'll be waiting on release day because I MUST order them as soon as I can... and then they sit there for the next 6 months (or years lol) waiting to get inky!

Thanks for joining in with my WNW challenge hun :o) Hugs, Lisa x
