AWOL and early releases.....

I will not be around much for the next 4 days as it is
the yearly in-law camp out in  our backgarden.
It's going to be pretty quiet this year I think only 9 of us.
But then we do only have one toilet it's
probably for the best!

Anyway have decided I would do my new releases early this
week so you can get a few extra days
with them in the 50% off sale

This week I have gone for some of my favourite
indoor flowers.....orchids!

are both available at Stitchy Bear Stamps.
The 50% off sale is on until Monday.
So if you have had a chance to grab a bargain
and there is something you fancy.....
Pop by and have a wee browse.

Have a great holiday weekend.
We are awaiting a large trampoline delivery today!
So expect some mad photo's next week!

New Releases at Stitchy Bear Stamps

I decided it was about time to have some mad monsters
and so we have Stripey Sock and Spotty Dotty.
Both are very friendly if a little mad.
They can be found hanging out at
Stitcht Bear Stamps.
This may have something to do with
the fact I have monsters in my
electricals at the moment
1. Car had to go into garage to replace track
rod end on Thursday
2. Hoover finally died
3. Fridge /Freezer has gone bang...

Well things are supposed to happen in 3's!!!!

Will be back later
It's other half Birthday today
40th indeed
without a fridge I've opted for lunch out with a few friends.
We had a wonderful meal with my folks yesterday
at Wildings - Maidens....
If you live near by always a great place to go!
Thanks Mum and Dad. x
