New Stamps!

ASproject2a0909

These new Artistic Stamper stamps take me right back to my childhood and a well-worn annual I used to own. They are the new Mabel Lucie Attwell range and I have had such a good time working with them. They were launched yesterday which is why my desk was shrouded in secrecy on Wednesday ... so now you know... the secret has been revealed! This cute little lady is called Rainy Day.

The stamps and loads of other yummy things are  available at Ally Pally this weekend ... I hate not going! I usually always go ... but this time I had just too much on and other plansASproject20909 ... I may go spend lots of dosh online ... just as a small consolation for myself you understand!

If anyone does go to Ally Pally please come and tell us what you saw and what you bought and if anyone else uses online retail therapy ... tell us all about that too.

Our friends in the US have a truck sale this weekend ... millions of Stampers Anonymous stamps being taken to a shop in St.Louis ... with Wendy Vecchi book signing ... I wanna be there too ...

And finally this is my card for the Allsorts Challenge this week where the theme is Autumn.

This is terrific, Linda! We have both gone for the same stamp - and this is Jennie's favourite too - isn't she cute? I love the Autumnal look you have given this,

Hi Linda

Oh how cute is this. Just perfect for the challenge.

I am so excited that there is a Mabel Lucie Attwell range of stamps - I am going to have to seek these out asap.

I had a book when I was 6 and still have it. I used to read it every night before I went to sleep. I know the poems at the beginning of the book really well but always used to fall asleep by the time I reach "The Mermaid Princess".

Anyway, back to your lovely card. Fantastic colours and detail.

Thank you for playing along with the Allsorts Challenge this week.

Love Jules xx
