There's always room for more birthday cake

The theme today at As You Like It Challenge is to use your favourite rubber stamp.  The idea is that we all tend to forget our old favourites sometimes, and so this is a great excuse to dig out that stamp you cannot possibly live without, and remind yourself why you love it!

I've gone back to my stamping roots, as my first introduction to rubber stamps was Penny Black and so I always have a soft spot for these critters.  My favourite characters are the hedgehogs and mice, so I've chosen an image that features one of each character.

I've softly water-coloured my image with my Distress Ink reinkers, and I've used my favourite papers (again) from Papermania (Lucy Cromwell), (current) favourite nestie (floral ovals), and two of my favourite dies (Lavish Branch and Corner bow).

Happy crafting.
