Oh dear ... something else I neeeed!

I have to admit that I have totally fallen for these stamps! I didn't realise how much I liked them until I chanced across the Stampotique Designers Blog and followed a blog-hop, found here ! I am in total awe at how pretty and amazing these 'freaky' figures can look! I just HAVE to get me some of these stamps to play with and have a go! I have one - Girl with a heart purse - and have about half a dozen more on my wish-list ...  a new obsession starting?? We shall see ...

Where has the time gone!?

Here we are halfway through June already and I've no idea where the time has gone since my last post! I'd been looking at hosting a Stampin Up workshop and finally took the plunge. The demonstrator was a lovely lady called Sara and her blog can be found here ! I invited some friends around and Sara demonstrated a couple of projects before letting us loose with stamps and inks to make a card. We were all levels of ability, some hadn't stamped before, some may never stamp again, but I think we all enjoyed the evening. Needless to say I ordered a few bits and pieces - I think my favourite has to be the 'Woodland Friends' stamp set as its so versatile. Then I managed to attend another SU workshop hosted by a friend and have ordered more goodies which will arrive very soon! Anyhow, I shall post photos when I've had a chance to play!
