Burble along with me in my dream world

And there's more

Dearly beloved took a shot of my box today using my camera. He showed me how to set the white balance-a bit too techy for me- and he managed a better shot than I did so I'm putting it up. It's still not as good as the real thing. Wish I could share it properly with all you great crafters out there.

Had a great afternoon with Jeanette. She's a Stampin' Up demonstrator in my area. Ever since I started making cards about sixteen years ago I've lusted after their stuff after seeing it in American mags like Rubber Stamper and Stamper's Sampler. A year or so ago they started selling over here but I like to see what I'm buying first being so careful with my money. (The loud bang you may have heard was DH fainting when he read my blog).I found Jeanette's blog while hopping and she has been round to my place today. I'm hoping this will be the start of a long and stampy relationship. I love the simple fresh whimsical style of Stampin' Up and the way they have everything organised into colour families.

Speaking of style-I love Pink Petticoat as well and Liz has some mini downloads out today in the full colour range. I succumbed to one and managed to make a hash of downloading so I had to ring up to confess my sins (clicked on the wrong button) and got to speak to the brains of the outfit-Liz's other half. He was lovely and promised me I wasn't the first to do it. We had a bit of a chat about God's own country- YORKSHIRE- of course. I could have chatted all morning. "There's a lot of donkeys with missing hind legs around here" DH keeps murmuring.

Must go -got to e-mail my Stampin' Up order to Jeanette.


  1. Hi Betty, I had a great time too thank you. You won't believe it but I actually made a hash of downloading my First Pink Petticoat Order too. See you next week. And your Blog looks great by the way.

  2. PS. The photo turned out great!

  3. Love your box, love your friendly chatty blog too.
    En xx

  4. Jeanette-I wouldn't have minded but it was my umpty blumptyeth download and I didn't like to admit to Liz I'd messed up!
