Seeing Stars...

... I have been playing with a new set of Studio 490 stamps... the Celestial Art set, which is one of my faves from the range by the uber talented Wendy Vecchi. So, last week Wendy from The Stamp Attic sent me this set to play with for my DT projects... ooh, it is loverly indeedily! I made a tag to start off with and all of the deets are over on The Stamp Attic blog... HERE


So, do you ever get "that" feeling when you see a new set of stamps? You know, that "I need to have those because if I don't I will sulk and never be able to make anything else ever again" feeling??? Well, that is how I felt about this set... the stars did it for me... I love stars... I even once considered getting a tattoo of a starburst but then had a little think about the...dare I say that word... needle... and being as I am scared witless by needles I soon changed my mind. Well, it was a nice thought LOL Anyways... that new set... tis perfect and I lurve it... it is my new fave!



I am happy to report that Lionel Laptop has come through his surgery and is doing well... actually, he is about as good as he was when he was first bought... I have to say... I was seriously starting to panic that Lionel would never work again... but he has been going for a full 24 hours now and ... touching wood (yep, am touching my head) he is fine. Ohhh, and.. I normally don't do this but... I want you to see Minxy's hat. You may have found it already but if you haven't... you really do need to see this... a couple of nights ago me and Minx were chatting on Skype and she showed me this amazing hat that she had made... from scratch!!! It is... beautiful!!! I got all excited and tried to make one myself but...erm... it ended up looking like a cuff that a rocker would wear... so I resorted to Mr. Amazon and got one to alter... anyways... have a look at Minxy's hat... you won't regret it!! Right... time for inkyness I think.... thanks for looking... TTFN!

This is gorgeous! I know what you mean about needles! My friend and I went once to a tattoo parlour but never made it over the threshold. Now I just use stayzon and stamps - it does eventually come off and I can change the stamp! Or at least when I drop the stamps or put my hand on them!!!!
