Charlotte

Good afternoon all.

So we are having typical english autumn weather here at the moment. You know when it's grey, foggy, cold and generally miserable. Hate it!! I want to be able to see the sky and the sun even when it's cold. Not this "can't make up my mind" weather. Been out for a few walks but with my feet still being painful and no sign of a fysio appointment yet it's not much fun.

Tomorrow I am having my E.C.G and on the 5th December a device fitted which measure my BP every 30 min over a 24 hour period. Hopefully after that my doctor will be able to tell me that I am as healthy as an ox hehe.

Over the past few days I have had another look through my stamp collection and remembering exactly why I bought my stamps. Some of them were impulse buys - you know the ones you buy cos you see them on different blogs and absolutely must-have - and they are currently being sold on ebay as I know I will never use them. As a single SAHM of 2 kids with limited finances (kids grow so fast and cost so much lol) I have to be think hard when it comes to buying stamps. So when I get a "I WANT THAT STAMP" moment while surfing the blogland I have to apply my spending brakes. And ask myself 1. Is this one of my favorite artist? 2. Is the stamp versatile? and 3. Will I be using the stamp more than once?. That way I know I get what I really want and stop myself from buying stamps that will just gather dust. I am sure I am not the only one having to do this :).

So the stamps I do have I treasure just like the one used for this card ...........



............. for KRAFTIN' KIMMIE CHALLENGE which is a sketch. I love Annie Rodrique's images. And I wish I could get them all hehe. They are quirky, so much fun to colour and suitable for both young and old alike. This was the first Annie stamp I bought and I think she's fab.

MATERIALS USED
