Home to Nest

I love this range from paper mania, the colours are muted and soft and the stamps are dinky but beautifully designed and they stamp perfectly.

I stamped this and took it all the way to Florida as I wanted to colour with my prisma pencils and I wish I had taken some of the paper but the colours seem to match ok irl.

I tried some of the brighter papers but found these muted almost sepia ones worked best. I have lost my mojo since my return, lots of new goodies always results in too many ideas and no cards so I used an old sketch saturday sketch and it seemed to help.

I used the early expresso that has been sitting on my desk for a while now and all the little bits are getting used slowly but it helps having easy access to them, couldn't do this with all my cardstock though as I would lose my desk lol.
