Just Because It's New

Good afternoon all I hope the weather is being kind to you on this bank holiday weekend, here on the East coast of Suffolk it is very windy and quite dull BUT it is dry at the moment!!!

When my mum rang me a few days ago from a car boot asking if I wanted her to buy me these cute stamps she had seen along with lots of lace I was really excited to see what she had got. Well imagine my surprise when two of the stamps were Belles & Whistles, four were Whiff of Joy and another was a Penny Black and then thirteen other cuties which I am not sure whose they are yet (they could be CC Designs or Greeting Farm). How much you may ask? Would you believe £2.00 the lot and nearly 300 metres of different lace's for you got it £2.00. I think I could cover everything in my house with the amount of lace she brought but the lady who was selling it all said she just didn't want to take it home!!! What a bargain, the lace will go to our next crop for a share out otherwise I would have to attach it to every card for the next 15 years lol.

Anyhow enough of my chatter I couldn't wait to ink up Beary Hugs it has been on my wishlist for a while now, I had no reason to make this card except I just needed too, you know the feeling!!
