Play Day

Well, today was a great day - I got to meet Burnice for the first time and we had a lovely day shopping and playing!

Took the train to Lingfield where Burn met me and we went to visit the Craft Barn. My eyes nearly popped right out of my head... have never seen so many stamping and crafty things together in one place, and a not large one at that! An hour and a half later... I left the shop clutching a big bag of goodies! Pics below!

I bought my first set of Copics and I can't wait to get home to start using them. Had a wee play tonight... Also bought some stamps, mounts for stamps, stamp pads (including 2 more distress inks), some glimmer mist and a few other bits and pieces.

We then went back to Burn's house at Woodingdean where we spent the afternoon talking about card making and other stuff and having a bit of a play. The time went so fast - could have spent another day just playing and talking! Really enjoyed meeting Burn - such a lovely lady and such fun!

Neglected to say that I had a bit of a spend in Hong Kong as well. Managed to find some peel offs - mainly corners and strips and some photo corners that were different colours and shapes as well as being embossed.

When I arrived in the UK on Sunday afternoon, I was really excited to find a couple of parcels waiting for me - one from Tanda Stamps and the other - 12 distress ink pads that I had ordered a few weeks ago. The colours are just amazing.

Had to take a picture of Burn and here she is outside the Craft Barn at Lingfield clutching her shopping bag with her goodies in it!!

Thanks Burn for a wonderful day!
