WOYWW,My New Stamps & Off On Holiday!!!...

Hello Peeps!!!
I haven't blogged for a few days,so you're in for it now,lol!!!
OK! 1st off it's Wednesday (my day off,ahhhhh) & so of course Julia is asking "What's On Your Workdesk?"
Welllll,on Saturday my luvly Hubby Paul took me over to Skipton so I could visit The Stamp Man shop,I was sooo excited.I have to explain I'm not very confident at driving to strange places & easily get lost!!! So when I got a "yes" from Paul that he would take me,I did a lil happy dance,teehee!!!
I met the luvly Jill & Ian (waves),we had a chat & I shopped & spent money,(I'm good at that!).
This is part of what I bought,the gorgeous "Butterfly Beauties"stamp sheet by Aspects of Design.

I had seen these stamps in Craft Stamper (March 2010) & they really caught my eye,so I knew what I was looking for!!!
Here's the card at another angle,so you can see the embellies I used,the papers are PM Rose Garden & the die-cuts are with them,rest from stash.

This is what's on my window sill at the mo,2 stone heads,carved by my son (L) & hubby (R).
They are both Stone Masons & Paul is teaching Paul Jnr the ropes,so I think it's a fab 1st attempt,don't you?! & they have both sold,straight away!!!
Paul Jnr said they have to stay on my window sill cos they are protecting me!!! (more like he can't be bothered moving them,lol!!!)Until the new owner collects them.


Have to tell you my other news,I booked a holiday yesterday for me & Paul to go to Egypt (Sharm El Sheikh)for a week! We fly this Sunday,can't wait (to thaw out!!!).
Gonna try craft a bit today,but don't hold your breaths!!!
Thanx for looking :o)xxx

There's nothing finer than a stash buy session, and the card is lovely, those 2 heads are also AWSOME, i wouldn't know which was the first attempt and which was the pro :0)

Paula Gale said...

Hi Diane - they're great statues - I like them a lot - no wonder they sold quickly - your son is a chip off the old block (get it??)!!! Sorry - very poor I know!

Anyway, thanks for the lovely wishes you left on my blog. I am really lucky to have people like you take the time out to say such lovely things. I hope you have the very best holiday and a safe journey and time.
