You're the Bestest!

Some of you may be able to tell from the different background in the photo below that I'm not at home...as it's half-term...and a Bank Holiday weekend...I've come to Norfolk to visit my family...and of course I've brought some of my crafty stash! I always fill a Really Useful box with stamps to play with, and searched out some stamps that I hadn't inked for a while to bring with me...first out of the box today was 'You're the Bestest' by Penny Black. I paired it with paper from the 'Farmhouse' pad by Crate Paper (a bargain at TK Maxx!). I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, and added a Lili of the Valley sentiment cut out using a 'Lacey Circle' Nestie.
