Anything but a card and another sneaky peek!

Morning everyone! Well the sun is shining right now so I am hoping that today will be nice and productive and give me a well needed boost! I have been so tired lately and don't think this miserable weather has been helping! Apologies for my lack of blog hopping right now my internet/phone line is playing up something rotten and the engineer should be here to fix it tomorrow (either that or break it all together!)
We are  nursing our poor old hamster too, he is pretty old for a hamster now and hasn't eaten for 3 days, he barely moves so I guess it's just a matter of time now for him. I guess it will be makeshift funerals by the end of the week and trying to find a spot that the dog won't dig in!
I have another sneaky peek today for the new Saturated Canary Stamps at Little Darlings currently being launched at CHA combined with my DT project for Creative Inspirations.
We are sponsored by the digi Garden this week and our theme is Altered art/Anything but a card.
I needed to decorate a notebook for Amelia for high school (I have bought a plain notebook and lever arch file with this intention!) so this is what I did...
I have used papers from my stash that I have had forever! They are Three bugs in a rug and the tags are from a sheet from the same company. My metal heart is Making memories, prima large flower, lasercut chipboard corner from MIC and butterfly from little snippets. I always struggle not to over embellish notebooks as they become less versatile then!
My wonderful image is "summer" by Saturated Canary at little Darlings and she has been coloured with prisma pencils. I have double matted everything and machine stitched as well as crackle painted all edges. I think she is just adorable!
Do check out the inspiration for this challenge from the rest of the CI team and don't forget to keep checking the SC DT for some more sneaky peeks of these wonderful stamps!
I would like to enter this into papertake weekly girlie, Paper pretties bling it on, Paper shelter anything goes and whoopsidaisy use up your stash.
Thanks for coming by again!
Big hugs

Oh my I don't think I would want to scribble anything in this lovely notebook.... I would just stash it and put it in a keepsake box... It's so gorgeous to have it open/shut and get it all messed up...
Awww poor hamster it's so hard to raise them from wee ages if they could only talk back and say what's wrong.... well old age just creeps up it would probably be better at least no pain... Bless him!
Enjoy your day....
Big happy smiles :-)
