Hi there friends (welcome to new friends too x)
So.......after nearly a year of living between 2 houses (80 mile round trips, half of my belongings in one house and half in the other - nearly drove me bonkers trying to remember what was where cos I'd spend hours looking for something and lol not find as it was always in the 'wrong' house, and oh not to mention 2x bills for running the houses 'ouch!!!' .....YeY!!! the sale went through yesterday) - (a little sad though cos Cat Hill Hall has and still is a very beautiful home, holding many fond memories for my family and myself:-))
So.......as soon as I've - I say I and I deffo mean WE lol have sorted through the much awaited for gear from the 'other house' my crafting routine will resume it's 'normal' frequency - YeY!!! (I loves to craft A LOT!!)
Enough of the 'Blah Blah Blah'..........
Here is one of the 2 ATC's I created for the 'swap' I join in with over on the fabulous Stampotique Originals FB Page (I can only share this one at the moment as the other one has not arrived at it's destination yet) - it's an international swap eeeek! Hosted by the fabulous Nikki Woodward - if you would like to join in the fun just click on the Stampotique link (above) and take a peep in the events section and when Nikki sends out the prompt join us :-)
The theme for this swap was 'Stamp It' (use a postage stamp along with your Stampotique stamps)
5 hours-ish later of messy inky fun this was the result......
Hope you like x
I LOVE the new Stampotique stamps I used - a little purchase from over at Art From The Heart
