More skull balloons. Or I love Stampotique again. Either way, it's a card.

I'm in the middle of THE most difficult time at work EVER. No apologies for the capital shouting, it really is very stressful- my department is being restructured, so I'm in the middle of applying for jobs that will replace my current job. Yeah, like I said, difficult times....... so Sunday afternoon, I took a break from stressing and made this.

As you might imagine, I wasn't really in the mood for any thing cutesy and sweet. This new Stampotique boy and some Dylusions inks hit the spot perfectly.

The background is made from a Flake easter egg box (it was the perfect colour brown), stencilled with DIs and my new fab wall stencil thingy.  Lookee.....

So it's pretty well perfect for the Stampotique designers challenge, which is to recycle. I didn't want to waste any so I made this tag as well.....

.....but now I think it might be more of a bookmark, and I've got a recipient in mind as well, hurray!

I'm also entering this into One Stitch at a Time and Stamp Something, who both have an Anything Goes challenge on at the moment. Double hurray!

Right, better get back to my interview prep.........
