The first destination on Saturday morning was The Stamp Attic - and a trip to see my lovely friend Wendy! I took the opportunity to drop off some more samples to decorate her treasure trove - not enough of it came back in my carrier bags though - I was a bit distracted - more of that later, but Bev really made up for it! Here are the samples that I dropped off - these use the gorgeous 7Gypsies Victoria papers, and the new stamps from Hero Arts.
Papers : 7 Gypsies Victoria, Cardstock : Bazzill, Punches : Fiskars Apron Lace & Effervescence, Stamps : Hero Arts Antique Engravings CL383, Essential Messages CL371, Everday Sayings CL1342, Patterned Buttons CL406, Cling Write Your Own CG113, Hero Arts Cling Big Cup CG164, What’s Perking CL416, Ink : Versafine Onyx Black, Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Embellishments : Ric Rac, Pearls, Distress Crackle – Rock Candy, Stardust Stickles, Ribbon
This one is my favourite though - I just love the contrast of colours in these papers, and they really showed off the Antique Engravings Hero Arts stamps. Really pretty - and lovely to colour. The ric rac is fabulous - such a lovely texture.

We had a lovely morning though - the time flew so fast! Took a few photos! (Sorry Wendy!) These are of the shop! Could spend a good few hours going wild in these aisles - shame it is 4 hours away from me! Still - it was totally worth the wait!
And here is a photo of two very lovely people!
So, off we went to Peterborough to visit Sir Stampalot - yet again, my mind wasn't really in it, but Bev did us both proud!
I didn't take any photos there - I was on the phone too much because.....
My gorgeous Silly Billy, all 11 months of him - went out for a walk with his Nanna & Grandad, got wrapped up in his flexi lead, and ended up with a broken radius & ulna. He is currently in a very lovely animal hospital in Northumberland, after having a couple of plates put in his leg. Our vets were fantastic on Saturday, and got him all stabilised, ready to be refered. Luckily they were able to see him really quickly. I can't wait until he is home, but he will need lots of TLC - and of course his squeaky duck!
Thanks Bev for all your support (and driving) on Saturday - and diverting me from tears several times during the afternoon by showing me even more stash! You are such a good friend, but crikey - you are terrible for my bank balance!!!
