The Stamp Man ATC January Swap - Rhymes and Tales

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my friends, design team members and readers.

Today the Stamp Man ATC challenge starts 2011 with a swap around the theme of rhymes and tales. This opens up a whole world of fun for you. I went with children's rhymes and actually it is very apt for me for today (those of you who know me will see my post tomorrow for my Mum whose name is Mary).

Mary had a little lamb, his fleece as white as snow,
and everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go.

I inked the background using torn paper and DIs, overstamped using the pine trees, misted with PPs and added the image and title from Crafty Individuals.

Supplies used -
Distress Inks - Pine Needles, Bundled Sage, Antique Linen and Spun Sugar.
TH Mini Holidays 2 stamps
Perfect Pearls - Heirloom Gold and Interference Red
Image - Crafty Individuals Miniatures 'People and places 2'

I wish you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2011 and hope it is everything you would wish for yourselves.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
