Last november I managed to get to the NEC and while there I could not resist one of my favourites, Lily of the Valley. The trouble is I love their stamps so much I couldn't decide which 4 to treat myself to, so I spent ages just walking back and forth repeatedly looking at them all, my daughter by now beginning to sigh heavily in frustration. Well to cut a long story short, I didn't buy this one and regretted it when I got home. So, to salve my crafting broken heart I went online and treated myself to a few more stamps, the one I have used on todays card included. So now....... a happy chicky again and no daughter sighing over my shoulder! lol!! I am so grateful to my daughter, she is a darling and without her I wouldn't have been able to go to the show in the first place.
What do you think of these papers, aren't they beautiful? They are from a pad of My Minds Eye glittered papers and I can't get enough of them, especially this rose one, it gives Pion papers a run for their money I think. Well that's it for today folks, I am a very busy girl today; I have my grandson then I am also making the cake decoration for my nieces First Communion on Sunday (remember the invites I made for her), plus I will be helping her mum and brother make cards for her too.
I hope you all have a lovely day. I will do my best to catch up with all your blogs tomorrow, its the only day I have free so I have lots to cram in.
Oh, before I go, I have updated the Freebies (Tab at top of the page) it includes a varied mix of papers from Donna at a wonderful site called Bearly Mine Designs. I just adore the shabby chic and distressed papers. If you have a couple of mins, stop by and take a look, I think you will find it worthwhile.
