Yesterday was such fun!

 My second post today! As some of you know Lynne, Megan and I went to Sir Stampalot yesterday. I wanted to take the car out for a decent run and where better to point it than in  the direction of Peterborough! We arranged to meet Brenda there and had a wonderful time! I bought a fairly big pile of stash, and had a good chat with Brenda and Janice too. They are both lovely, as is the new bigger shop. It's a very long time since Lynne and I stood in the doorway of a shop and said WOW! The run with the car was great, and I was pleased that I could check out the acceleration and how it handled on the A1. Anyway, my card is the first  I've made using some of my new stash. I had about 4 MS punches on my wish list, but eventually bought a set of 'punch around the page'. The flower is a Tilda stamp. Although I really don't like the children with no mouths, Brenda pointed out that they do quite a lot of useful stamps to create scenery etc, and this is one that looks pretty good on it's own. I coloured it in promarkers and decoupaged it to make it stand out a bit. The papers are MME. I'm now going to go and play with the new Penny black stamps I bought and stroke some kaisercraft papers! The Hero stamps have been put grudgingly away as presents for Mother's day and my birthday.

  1. Very pretty. Must say I do like that flower stamp.

    Haven't done anything with my new goodies yet. I was trying to think of where to accommodate them & got sidetracked into re-organising my stash storage! It's going to take me a while, I think, but at least when it's done I might be able to find things! x

  5. Sounds like you had a great day out, Sally. Glad the car went well.
    Your card is lovely, that flower is gorgeous, I'd have never had guessed it was a Tilda!!
    Love the MS border too, I have that one on my wish list but have been having trouble finding it. Will have to checkout Sir Stampalot's website.
    Have a good week.
