Grumpy Lady

Hi Everybody,

What a fabulous card to send to a friend ... but one that has been chosen carefully so as not to offend.

I have used the Tall Flowers Stamps & Die Set to add some interest around her and the sentiment stamp is from the verses set 

The image is from the CD that I have had for years called The Next Big Thing and I wouldn't part with it for the world.

It is by La Pashe and is called Just Inklined but I don't think the CD is available anymore.  

They have their own blog which may be worth a look at and they have freebie stamps for you to try also 

There are lots of characters on the CD just like this, both male and female, and they are absolutely brilliant for water colours or pencils. A good alternative choice would be the Wrinklies and the characters on that are of a similar vein and make me laugh at some of their expressions. 

Should you find this for sale in Thrift shops or online then the CD you are looking for is the one with the dog on the front.

I found one on eBay for £2.99 which is a steal and well worth every penny. I think I paid £10 for mine years ago.

The images on there cover everything you could possibly think of, and although CD crafting has gone way out of fashion jut now this is a CD OI go back to time and time again.

Moe tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Good Morning Christina. This is a good card. But unfortunately it's not for me. I know many crafters like this sort of thing but I prefer the cards that we normally see on your blog. But that is only my opinion and as the old saying goes " wouldn't do for us all to be the same" and that is very true. So today Christina ... so sorry to say ... it's a no from me . No offence meant to you or any other of your followers and my apologies to everyone. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone.
    Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
