Shower Of Flowers


Well i finally got some time to myself at the weekend, as Alan took H to 'ModelWorld' at the Brighton Centre on Saturday, then we went for dinner at 'Wagamama' and while Alan babysat H, i went to see 'I'll Give It A Year' with my friend Celia, as it's more a girly movie.  The class at 'The Glitter Pot' was good and i only spent £5, as a couple of the things i wanted, were out of stock, which was a bit of a bumer, as they had 10% off of everything, as they had won 3 awards !!

Although i have the smaller version of this image (it's on the transparent set 'Hugs'), i have always wanted the wooden version, as i always thought the other version was too small.  I treated myself to the gorgeous 'Promises' papers from LOTV - well they are in purple and it is my favourite colour at the moment :-), the sentiment is also LOTV, the arrows are from a stamp set by - Stampendous - 'To The Point' (that i think my Canadian crafty friend / penpal sent me), gems are from 'Joy Crafts' and buttons are from 'The Ribbon Girls.

Oh Sam that was a bummer being out of stock but how good was you not finding something else to buy wish i could go in and come out only spending £5. This is such a sweet stamp and coloured in lovely colours and will have to bear these pages in mind when i go spending hopefully not this week.

Tee hee!!

Funny how the little transparent images make us want the larger ones isn't it. A big of good marketing there me thinks!! LOL!!!

Love your card and image very much.

I think it is a good job I can't visit the Glitter Pot. I think I would be bankrupt!!

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
