Arrival of new Stash to play with...

Forgive me for sharing... but I'm like a kid who has just received her first candy, whenever new stash arrives in the post, so I've just got to share my purchases with you all...
As you can see, on top I have a new little Tilda and finally a Magnolia background to play with... My dear friend and fellow DT member over at Teddy Stampers, Lins, sent me some gorgeous images not so long ago stamped in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink and I just had to get myself a pad and additional ink.  I stamped a whole lot of images this evening for another dear blogfriend and I didn't have one smudged image... but let me use the Momento Black, then I somehow get smudges all over the place...grrrr!!! 

Don't you just love that gorgeous lace too... can't wait to use them.  And some new Nellie Snellen dies, which look like doillies... as you can see they are still in their package as they only arrived today. The other die is from Marianne Designs, my first one... woohoooo and it has some flourishes with it... a first for me... so now you see why I am so excited!!!

Here's a close up so you can really admire that Lace and then I just had to get some more of those beautiful Lilies.

A nice close up of those dies I was referring to.... All these purchases (except the stamps) are from Paola, who is based in Johannesburg. She really packs your parcel well, so that nothing gets damaged.  I am going to enjoy playing with my new stash.

Thanks for popping by.  I hope to be making a few cards over the weekend as there are some new challenges on the go, so watch this space... you'll get to see me using some of my new goodies.  Enjoy the weekend, I certainly plan to... hugs Sharon x

Lucky fish!!! I am waiting for my new Project Life kit to arrive from New Zealand, and I have a package of new fabric coming from the Fat Quarter Shop in the US. The first one from them went missing so they have re-sent it. I am always like a cat on a hot tin roof when I am waiting for an overseas parcel to arrive, I am always a bit nervous they get lost!! Have a lovely weekend. Ray is taking the boys shopping to Newcastle this morning, so I have the whole morning by myself, I haven't had any me time in months, so I can't wait!!!! :)
