I Love Pickle!


No, this isn't an exhortation to "bring out the Branston's", but a declaration of adoration for this cute little guy who features on Wild Rose Studio's latest release of stamps - isn't he the cutest ever?? As soon as I saw these stamps I had to order two ... I'm currently waiting for the lovely ladies at The Glitterpot to send me the second one as some naughty person must have popped the last one into their basket at the same time as me, but I'm sure it will soon be here. Meanwhile I just HAD to make a card with this adorable stamp "Pickle With Presents".


This stamp is really quite big, so I decided to keep the whole thing simple and make a card for this week's Less Is More challenge - Things That Move. I'm sure you'll agree that Pickle is putting his best foot forward dragging along that sleigh, even though the vehicle would also move of its own accord if it was given just the teeniest push downhill in the snow !  I know that the general LIM style is arty rather than cute but I thought this one ticks the boxes, so I couldn't resist!

I'm very pleased with this stamp as it is very simple to colour, which I'm sure will be a godsend when it gets nearer to Christmas!!

Recipe:
Main image: Wild Rose Studio "Pickle With Presents", coloured with Promarkers and dusted with glamour dust on his hat :-);
Sentiment: Pink Gem Designs;
Supplies: dotty ribbon from a box of Christmas goodies sent to me by Helen;
Tools: background white pearlescent card embossed with Cuttlebug "snowflakes" folder.

Challenges:
Less Is More #29 - Things That Move
Totally Gorjuss #94 - Cute and Cuddly
Passion for Promarkers #114 - No Patterned Paper
Ooh-La-La #87 - No Backing Paper
Charisma #34 - Glitter It!

That's all for now ... back on Saturday with another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
