Glamorous Gardening


Unfortunately this is going to be a very quick post as Alan and I are off to see 'Josh Widdicombe' tonight - he's a comedian and was in 'The Last Leg' on Channel 4, then tomorrow we hopefully pick up Alan's new / secondhand car, we are having a new bathroom window fitted and H is going to school as a Spider for his 'Bug Ball'.

Today's image is one of the ones that came free with a magazine a while ago (which is fabby, because you get to test it out before you buy the stamp - only problem is, you are limited to the shape), the image is shape is Spellbinders 'Labels One' with the scalloped edge to match, the papers are LOTV / Nitwits - 'Perfect Pairs', edge die is MB ' Meridian Border', flower is MB 'Hollyhock Stem', Pin is from Crafts U Love 'Deco Pins', Pearls are 'Habico'
