This week the Belles are all using the stamp set Lil Monster’s Balloon and soon-to-be in the store – a matching die! How awesome is that? I am so into dies at the moment – I love anything that is going to save me time. I have coloured him in with my new Distress Markers onto watercolour paper. I just wanna say that I LOVE my new markers! (A Happy Mother’s present to myself – any excuse I say!) I can see I am going to have a lot of fun colouring in with these babies!
