I hope you are all well and none of you have been flooded out. We are ok, although it doesn't seem to have stopped raining here since yesterday afternoon. Alan has gone to Turkey for a couple of days for work (oh i do hate it, when he is away), he is back on Thursday morning(fortunately he managed to get his flights changed), as we have tickets to see 'Shrek The Musical' in London (H even got permission from his headmaster).
Today's stamp is another bargain, got it for £4.99 and i thought it would be ideal for my best friends daughter's 18th, which is later on in the year. I have used my favourite colour at the moment 'Purple' and the papers are Doodlebug - 'Lilac Boutique Assortment', which include glitter - used for the number 18 (cut using Sizzix - 'Fruit Smoothie'), velvet - used for the flowers, that have been cut using Tim Holtz - 'Tattered Flower Garland' with black 'Dovecraft' glitter brads in the centre, the black 'Kaisercraft' pearls have been covered with ice crystal stickcles. The wide black lace is from 'The Ribbon Girls', whilst the thinner one used on her dress is from Castleford, Yorkshire market.
