Tea with Mrs Tiggywinkle

Hi everyone and welcome to my newest followers...

I've been wanting to make a Tiggywinkle card ever since we saw a hedgehog in our garden for the first time the other day...haven't seen it since so it could be a one off...Anyway, here is my card.
 The stamp is by Crafters Companion and the backing papers have been printed on my laser printer from the Crafters Companion Mrs Tiggywinkle cd. The die cut is Spellbinders labels six.  I've added a charm which is a teapot. This originated on a necklace which one of my daughters got years ago free with a magazine...why any kid would want to wear a teapot round their neck is beyond me but at least it came in useful eventually. I knew I hoarded things for a reason. I've added ribbon and flowers from my stash and a Daisy and Dandelion message tag sentiment which I've layered up with some of the gingham backing paper.
It was my birthday yesterday and I got an absolutely brilliant pressie from my bestest buddy Sue. A new toy! Here it is..
It's a heated gem setter. It's fab, no more faffing about trying to glue gems on. I've used it to add some pink gems to the corners of my card..
