New Stamps

It's a wet and dreary time but hooray..I've taken delivery of some new Sugar Nellie Stamps...! Yippee, I've made lots of toppers and am off to play with a few ideas.

I'm thinking it might be a good idea to make up a Stamp book, so I can remind myself what stamps I have...
so check back sometime and see!

Just a couple of quickies

So here's my first interpretation:-

My First Post of 2011

Hello and best wishes to everyone for 2011.

My only disappointment of this Christmas was the failure to arrive, of cards to Step daughter and children. I put sooooo much effort into these cards and also a substancial amount of money....which we've had to find again. Post office have tracked them to Malvern...then they disappear. Lesson learnt! In future will deliver by hand.

Only have a couple of photos of said cards....


Plus a couple of cards for Christmas


Well, off to play in the Sugar Bowl now.....Challenge 50 layout has been posted!!
