Kilts!!!



As we are soon to be moving to bonny Scotland I thought it would be nice to do some 'Scottish' themed change of address cards. These photos don't show all of them but I didn't want to drive you completely kilt mad! Our new details are on the back of the tags.

The stamp is obviously a 'Nellie' from funkykits but I would like to add that after painting 120 of these little chaps I can honestly say I never want to use him again!!LOL!
The tags I got free of a friend who was going to bin them....nooooo....the card I already had and the ribbon I got off e-bay for about £3.00. So in total the whole lot only cost about £7.00...not bad considering they drove me do-lally!!!!

Look at them all !!! you must have been cross eyed by the time youd finished colouring them in. I have to say though what a lovely idea! Ive been looking at Hamish myself lately and wondering whether to buy him or not?

These are fab Emma. I have been colouring Hamish myself this afternoon but my effort isn't as good as yours. Have some new prismas but haven't worked out how to spread the colour just yet! Still playing! You'll be a bit closer to me when you move to Scotland and in the home of Sugar Nellies! You lucky thing, you!
