Well, that bank holiday weekend went quickly, but it was a good one for me. Hope yours was too.
Saturday saw me at our monthly quilting meeting. When I got home Mr Hettie was pottering outside so I had a sneaky hour working on my Amsterdam album!! Well, why not?
Sunday was spent pottering in the garden, painting the love seat with my usual feathered supervisors on standby. Today I put another coat of paint on the underside of the seat and started prepping my Adirondack chair ready for it to be painted. Spent the afternoon making some Christmas cards for Rudolph Day. I will share them later in the week.
Right then. Onto today's post.
A very good fellow Snippets Playmate had some lovely stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn that I fell in love with. You see there is a family story about a hamster called Hammy that lived on the bookcase (in his cage of course!), at the bottom of our stairs. I was too little to have anything to do with it, and he belonged to my big Sister and Brother. Apparently they were not very good at looking after him, and he had been dead for two weeks before they noticed!!! Hence I was never allowed to have my rabbit and had to wait until I was married!!
So onto this stamp set and dies. I knew I wanted to get hold of it, searched UK retailers but no luck. So I went directly to Lawn Fawn and blow me, I could order it and pay using Paypal without having to set up yet another account and in super quick time it arrived!! So I had to use it....
My poor friend was not very well, and in one of the texts she sent me, she told me that her glands were swollen and that she looked like a hamster....hence a card was born!!
Here it is with the envelope. All coloured in with Copics. I used Snippets of card to stamp and die cut. Rachel loved the card or was it the Carte D'or Eaton Mess ice-cream I took up, for medicinal purposes only.
I also wanted to show you how my package was sent...
The papers were free and that bakers twine is gorgeous. There was even a small stamp enclosed.
I would definitely order from Lawn Fawn again...their prices are very reasonable, great quality and postage from US to UK was very good.
Off to play in the Snippets Playground to see what has been occurring over the weekend.
Thanks for calling by.
