Wooly Dames


Well the snow cleared very quickly, once the sun got to it, thank goodness.  This morning though we woke to a very wild and wet weather and i had an Arthiritis coffee morning to go to, as there was a talk by a Consultant / Researcher from Brighton Hospital and she was incredibly interesting and helpful, fortunately the rain subsided by the time i had to walk there.

Today's stamp is one i've had a long time (I'm trying to use, stamps, that i haven't used before), but never used, as i was a little unsure of what to do with it ?, but as there are a couple of Spring Challenges around, it gave me some inspiration !, the papers are Basic Grey - 'Urban Prairie' (which i don't use very often, but i'm glad i did for this one), the die is Marianne Creatables - 'Large Ovals By Petra' (which got partly paid for by a Challenge, that I won a couple of weeks ago), Leaves - Sizzix - 'Flowers, Leaves And Branches', Sentiment - LOTV - 'Tags', Ribbon - 'Stampin Up', Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearls - The Hobby House and ribbon brad from my stash.
