When I saw the Di Hickman sketch, I had some idea what I wanted to do, I wanted a large image to use as the strips so that you could still see the whole picture. The only paper I could find is this K&Co paper that I've been hoarding for ages, then I didn't want to put too much on it to spoil the paper so an idea was formed to use acetate, the word stamp is autumn leaves, ribbon to hold it place, also a spot of glue under the butterfly that was cut out of a scrap of the same paper.
Sis didn't have to look after J yesterday so she rang and said she would pick me up at 10am and that she left a message for Nikki to be at my place if she wanted to come too, at this point we hadn't decided where to go. Eventually I decided to take Sis to somewhere where she hadn't been so off to Craft U love at Charlwood near Gatwick actually its about 40 minutes from Guildford. They were so friendly made us a tea or coffee, let us use the loo very important, they have a huge display of die cutting, quickcutz, cuttlebug and the cricut, loads of other stuff too good job I remembered my pin number for the CC. I then convinced Sis that the Glitter Pot was only half an hour away, only slightly lied it was another 40 minutes, well poor Nikki and she really is poor now was amazed how many stamps they had. Oh by the way as soon as they get an online order they're out in the shop collecting those stamps before anyone else buys them. Now on the way out I told Sis that The Craft barn was only another 40 minutes away was stunned when she OK bearing in mind we didn't have a map and I only a RAC route for the first two craft shops which by the way was rubbish I'm surprised we only got lost once. The Craft Barn has had a bit of facelift, freshly painted, sofa for those men in your life that begrudgingly takes you craft shopping, it felt light and airy and had amazing selection of scrapbook papers and although not so many stamps still lots of various manufactures. OK now I'm poor too.
Finally has a way of a Thank You for visiting my blog some Blog Candy, there's Sugared Basic Grey 6 inch pad, a new Tilda stamp, the image to show which stamp is stamped with my stamp, you don't think I'll give one of mine away, some ribbon and some flowers out my stash. Now all you need to do it comment on this post and everyone will go in the draw.
