Eden

Good morning all.

Brrrrrrrrr - it's getting colder, damp and grey. Feeling much better but I still have James home. He was sick (again) this morning so I have asked the doctor to have a look at him. It's definately not a bug as they don't last for days. We will just have to wait and see I guess.

Spent yesterday just pottering around as I was feeling sorry for myself with the flu (well, someone has to lol) and decided to look through my stamps. I don't know about you but I have several stamps that I bought cos I absolutely loved them and then only used once for a card before storing them away in my stamp boxes. And there they sit, forgotten, unloved and gathering wool. So I have decided it's time to get rid of the ones I will NEVER use again (not an easy task as I am constantly going - "hm, I might use it again" knowing full well I won't) and use the stamps I am keeping more - maybe even cut down on buying stamps - nahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! And that's just my rubber - dread to have a look thro my digi files.

So for today I have used one of the neglected stamps for the 1st QUIXOTIC SKETCH CHALLENGE ..............



........... And I have used this adorable stamp from Belles'n'Whistles designed by the talented Elisabeth Bell. How this end up in the Lonely Stamps Club I have no idea but she's not going back hehe. Teamed her up with some lovely papers and it makes a super card for a toddler :).

This is gorgeous, Mette! I hope you and James are feeling better soon. My whole family is sick, too. Not fun! I just sold a bunch of old craft stuff today and it feels good. More money for new stuff. Teehee. :D
