Who's the lucky girl?


I am so lucky, I won the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blogspot Challenge for December and got to choose stamps for my prize.  I didn’t even know I’d won but the wonderful Jennie sent me an e mail, so a big thank you to Jennie.  These are the stamps I chose, can’t wait to use them.


When I went on Wednesday to the Craft Den, two of my wonderful friends gave me things they had found which they thought I would find useful…



The books are really old, one printed in 1899 and the other in 1904, feel as though I shouldn't tear them apart. We had a bit of fun with the books, I started asking  questions from the book and it's all in £ s. & d. ...now that should show your age if you know what I'm talking about, lol.  Anyway none of us got the answers, luckily they were in the back! The photo above is some of lots of ephemera that Kathryn brought for me, aren't they wonderful.



These are fabulous crochet flowers made by Jill, in the colours I wanted and on the left hand side is some florist wire, which I'm going to put outside to rust.

I feel extremely lucky this week and once again would like to say a big thank you to Jennie, Kathryn and Jill.
