Do you have stack of pic and mix sweetie in a corner of your craft room?
Why ever not, its helps the creative juices flow when you chop on something sweet while crafting, maybe that's why my bum was too big for most of my summer trousers this weekend!
I was chomping on these chocolate mice, very appropriate considering the image I was using.
Mice, well there is a change, I avoid teddy bear as much as I can as there are just so many out there and in the store we have to limited the teddy ranges to one at a time, at the moment it's Fizzy Moon so we passed on the Me to You range as we still have Forever Friends too , you can see why I avoid bears and chose mice.
The other thing I liked about this original art was that it was Monochromatic and I have seen a lot of this type of colouring with the Simply Sassy girls. AND it suits men's cards which are always a struggle.
I need to do a photographic course or change my camera because these pic do not do the images justice.
I think this will answer a lot of PM's (Private Messages) that I have received this weekend.
I am delighted with the support and encouragement that all you sugar addict give me,
I was always aware that we had chosen an artist who was not exclusive
and worked with several stamp companies past and present.
(as does Elisabeth Bell, Mo Manning, Rachelle Anne Miller, Helz Cuppleditch to name a few)
and it does not detract from the success of a range because that character appears in multiple brands.
( we are a very small company we do not look for massive sales from any range)
Stamp companies keep what they are working on close to their chests, the amount of work that goes into launching a range does not happen in a couple of days,
there are months worth of work going on behind the scene.
Yes my bubble is burst a little but lets be positive here, these image are totally cute or I would never have chosen them in the first place and I have other too, not only this character from this one artist
is there such a thing as too much rubber?
Do you shop exclusively with one brand of rubber, NO I would hope not!
I myself have my favourite brands too, boxes of them line my craft desk , yes I am a rubber tart,
there is no exclusive loyalty in the world of those with a rubber fetish.
Some I love and others I hate, I questions peoples taste all the time but if it was not for the diverse choices and tastes in everything, live would be boring.
On ward and up wards, counting down the weeks until we lauch
a Carnival of Colour
I hope you can join us.
