    Skiergirl - hope you feel better soon.

    OOpps - I've just spent 23 quid here:
    they have a really good sale on, and 2nd class delivery is only 1.65!!! They have bazzill 12x12 cardstock for 20p each, some great imaginisce bargains - stamps and embellishments, I've just spent about an hour on there looking at everything.

    Their stall is my favourite at the Alexandra Palace show. They have bargain sale buckets dotted all around and there stash is just gorgeous and they are so friendly too.

    Saveapenny - I'm so pleased to hear your good news :T

    :j for saveapenny, will do the happy dance when it's three out of three.

    Melissa, it's chipboard flourishes I'm looking for, some of the brand name ones are very expensive and I think the company I bought them from actually cut them and they were very reasonable about 15p each.

    Have a great day everyone, back to bed for a little snooze, been up since some awful hour, half past f......f......f......five!! On a Sunday!:eek:
    :whistle: Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning the devil says, "OH CARP, SHE'S UP"! :whistle:

    THE-WIFE my ATC arrived yesterday - it's so cute *g* I'll upload a piccie later (OH has gone fishing and taken my camera) I finished yours today - I used decoupatch glue instead of my usual sealer and it's turned out near enough the same effect so I'll post it tomorrow. Thank you so much for my little baggies. Ummm, I was going to put yours in one to send back but it sort of evolved into quite a 3d ATC and wont fit :rotfl:

    I'll upload it and mine from you on my blog later when I get my camera back so don't look if you want a surprise ;) I'll have a wee blog hop later too to catch up.

    Off to a Glimmer Mists class in a min -can't wait. Been wanting to try them out for ages.
