Another of my new stamps


When I saw that Pops was selling some stamps on her Facebook page of course I had to take a look, well I say some, 212! I just had to buy this cute Bildmalarna couple as I make a lot of wedding cards to sell. This card though is for a couple of friends who are getting married on Saturday.I went for lilac for a change from pink, using Papermania Boysenberry papers and some lovely spotted organza ribbon. The bouquet is made up from Crealie die cut leaves and kraft and Wild Orchid flowers.

I had a couple of people intrigued by my free lunch (see yesterday's post) and they want to know more. We booked our hotels for our Autumn holiday at Virgin holidays in the House of Fraser (HOF) store and got a HOF card to collect points to spend. Bought some bedding and a couple of other things too and accrued £15 to spend. Went to Cafe Zest in HOF for coffee and asked about spending the points and were told we could provided we paid balance by card (something to do with the way they deal with the cards!) Went there for lunch a couple of weeks ago and ordered and tried to use card and were told we couldn't as they are not HOF but independent. Hubby not happy and complained, so we paid. Result manager came over very apologetic and offered us a free lunch next time. So we had a free lunch and the used the £15 in store. They do very nice lunches by the way and great customer service.
