I can't believe it - I started a post for this earlier today, came back to it when family had gone ... and I accidentally deleted it ... couldn't even get a cache copy to rescue it because it hadn't actually been published ... first time I've done that!
Anyway, my brother and SIL came to have lunch with us and spend the afternoon -they went to get mum from the home so we all had the time together. Enjoy lunch and then went up to the summerhouse in the garden for a cuppa - took these just before they left:
The real reason I'm here for this post is for WOYWW 277 (if you don't know what this is, click the link, find out and join in ... be warned: you will become addicted!).
I thought I'd show what I bought at Ally Pally Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show on Saturday (I won a ticket and managed to get there after quite a few years of not going). When I did the original post I went into a bit of detail about the items, but now I'm just going to show the picture (you're probably glad about that to save lots of reading). I've just remembered that I'd already put some stuff away - more distress ink pads to add to my collection and the new round applicator and pads that look like a better idea than the rectangular ones (we shall see).
The next picture shows what postie brought me. On top if a prize I won for a challenge and underneath is an envie full of ribbons - a little sneaky peek - sent for me to use some for my card for the first challenge on Buckwells crafty challenge blog which will start on 1 October. I am very privileged and excited to have been asked to be on the design team.
Thanks everyone who visited for last week's WOYWW and for your comments. For those interested in my progress with the Scan n Cut I made a couple of snowflake easel cards that you can see here.
Oh ... and I haven't got any further with sorting and putting my unmounted stamps into the wallets I showed last week ... it will be done ... some time!
