Shoppers


I sell a few of these canvas shoppers as they make handy presents and are very useful to pop into a handbag. I have a large circle template with post its on the back which I place in the middle and then stamp around it. I then remove the template and build up the wreath, stamp a sentiment in the middle and in this case stamped some butterflies too. All the stamps are Card-io.

We had a lovely little trip away for our Anniversary. On Sunday we were due to go to a show in Ipswich called The Story of The Beach boys but sadly it was cancelled. As we had paid for The Premier Inn just outisde of town we went to Bury St Edmunds for the day. Then on Monday we went to Colchester Zoo and drove to Clacton to spend the night at the Premier on the seafront. On our Anniversary on Tuesday we went into Colchester where there is a 60's cafe we wanted to visit.

Happy Anniversary, and it sounds as though even with the cancellation, you still had such a grand trip. Loved this wonderful linen-looking piece with the lovely stamped wreath. What a useful item this would be to carry on a shopping trip. TFS
