Blog Candy

Oops I had fully intended to post this up yesterday but the day just seemed to run away with me and in the end I never got the chance!! As you can see from the photo Jill (from The Stamp Man is offering up some more blog candy to one lucky UK resident so hop on over to The Stamp Man's blog to find out more! I can most definitely recommend the Starburst Stains for anyone that loves shimmery things as these are gorgeous.


I had one of those days yesterday that just wouldn't go right! I was working on my latest contribution for Craft Stamper and no matter how many times I coloured my images they looked awful!! Later on in the day I tried changed colouring mediums and thankfully they looked a lot better so I'm hoping that today I am back on track again!

A little while ago I found out that I was allergic to a few different foods through having a Vega Test so for the last few months I have been cutting these particular food groups out of my diet. However I am still having trouble so this morning I am going back to be re-tested. You are no doubt wondering why I am telling you this and it is only because if I find out that I am allergic to chocolate I well may have to kill myself so if this ends up being my last post you will know why!!! Wish me luck..................

Hello Kay
Just catching up as I have been unwell yet again.
Sorry you had a bad day yesterday & the best of luck with your testing ---- will keep my fingers crossed the chocolate is not on the list of foods to cut out.
Seeing all you have posted has given me a much needed boost.
Love the little chicks stamps, likewise the frosty tree stamp but afraid with all those leaves it doesn't look very wintry or Christmassy, at least not to me.
"Thanks" for finding out about the poppy stamp, have made notes & my darling daughter-in-law has promised to seek it out on her next visit to the U.S.A.
Hope you have better days from now on.
a.k.a Rita xx

Hi Rita,

So sorry to hear you've been ill again - you are certainly not having much luck recently!

You've got a point about the trees not being very traditional for winter or Christmas with their leaves still intact but don't forget not all trees drop their leaves!!

As for the poppy stamps - don't thank me as I didn't do anything! If I see Pauline I will pass on your thanks to her!

I hope you soon feel better.

Hi Kay,

Hope you don't have to give up chocolate. I have a fridge magnet with the saying 'I'd give up chocolate, but I'm no quitter'. Having said that I did manage to give up chocolate for lent once, many years ago. My fav at the moment is Lindt Chilli Chocolate - sublime!

Rita's 'thanks' has been passed on in the virtual world. It may be a while before we meet again in the real one!

Received some more craft stash today in the post - can't wait to play at the weekend.

Have you managed to acquire any of the Lavinia stamps yet? I have lots of them and they are lovely. I'm still perfecting my brayering technique though.

Hugs, Pauline x

Hi Pauline - haven't bought any Lavinia stamps yet as I want to check out the quality first. Clear stamps vary so much and because I want to buy a whole heap of them I am reluctant to until I have tried one out first!!
