Bright and Cheerful

It is Christmas Eve and I am sick of the rain here in the UK. It has been nothing but trouble for many reasons and I am feeling rather gloomy what with one thing or another. So yesterday decided to carve a stamp and went for a naive flower it is about 4cm wide. Today decided to make a project with it and went for bright colour Dylusion ink sprays. I have made a bobbin to hold some trim which will be a present for a fellow crafter in 2013, as over at the CraftBubble forum we have a birthday card exchange and this will be our gift for the year (a metre of trim,etc). So here is my first make:

I punched a flower with some of the leftovers and glued it to a pin to hold the wrapped around trim.

I think a matching card is in order and I am wondering whether I might give the stamp as a gift too. That is if I can part with it!! Going to enter this bobbin into the Anything but a Card challenge which is 'Anything Goes' and also Fab n Funky challenge 'add some ribbon or lace'
