Hanglar Stamps For Sale ...

I got lucky this week and was able to buy a gorgeous Hanglar Stanglar stamp set from Ebay. I bought a second set too so if you'd like it email me - my email address is up there on the right - and I'll get it sent off to you. All I am asking for is the £33 that I paid for it plus £2 (United Kingdom) or £2.50 (everywhere else) for postage paid via paypal

Back in Business ...

I. Am. A. Useless. Blogger.  Yeah, yeah, yeah you've heard it all before I know. But at least I have a post for you today with something new which has been something of a challenge because the screen on my laptop is broken and I am having to use an antique :)

Splashing in the Rain ...

I just adore the Molly Blooms stamps, especially this little puddle splashing Molly and she has the most perfect spotty welly-boots!  She just happened to be sitting on my desk this afternoon waiting for a few finishing touches when the postman brought a new supply of charms for the Ribbon Girl and look - umbrella charms!! They are so sweet and I love the brass colour - goes perfectly with the kraft cardstock and the distressed edges I gave to my favourite October Afternoon papers as well as the tea dyed gingham ribbon.

Thank You Sew Very Much ...

This card made me so happy and it's been sat on my desk since last week just so that I can look at it :)  I think it will be one of those cards that I just can't give away
