Evening Peeps,

Had a good few days off? I don't know what the weather has been like in your part of the country today but down here in Essex it's been pants compared with the rest of the weekend! Had planned on sunning my (quite wintersome pale) self on the beach today but the sun just didn't want to shine. Instead, Adam (my bf) and I went out for a drive and I found (by chance) a little craft and art centre in one of the villages we passed through, so of course we had to stop and pay a visit. In amongst the paintings and local craftwares for sale I found these cute stamps made by 'personal impressions' and they only cost £4.60 for the set:

Whilst posting I thought I'd show you this wedding card I made this week for Adam's cousin. I used one of my new downloaded images from . A real steal at the £1.75 intro rate for a set of 3 wedding themed images.
I have only just started using polychromo pencils so my colouring of the images is not as great as it could be (anyone know of any tips for using these pencils???) printing on textured card didn't help matters though! Silly me. :o(

Papers: Pink paper - PM Sweet Nothings pack, Hearts Paper - Doodlebug Inc.,
Stamps: Wedding Couple - download from, sentiment -,
Inks: Versamagic Chalk Ink 'pixie dust'. Whispers inkpad 'black'
Embellishments: PM and Prima flowers, Ribbons - from stash

Ta ra for now..
