Sunday Stamper - Pearls


Hels' SundayStamper challenge this week is to use pearls. I have taken a liberty with this - but made a Thank You tag for everyone who sent me messages for my birthday.

The tag is coloured with shabby shutters (LHS) and crushed olive (RHS) and overstamped with a Wendy background.  I used a square tag that didn't turn out right in the tattered florals die, (never throw anything away!) and stamped on it with a stamp from a new set (another birthday treat to myself) by Inkadinkado.

And the pearls- liquid peals...... well, they're called pearls!!

The other stamps are Paperartsy.

In the end, I did nothing apart from some shopping - I'd done the first (food) trip by 8.30 and went back out to finish off - the drawback of not having a car is you can't carry everything on one trip - fortunately I live close enough to the shops in Sutton to be within walking distance!

I found a bit of a bargain though - this gorgeously turquoise box was half price in WH Smith!
I'm not showing you what's in it yet though.  I had to move a few things around to find a surface for it - but now it's right above my craft mat within easy reach when I'm crafting-on-the-floor!! (Bit of a hint there, something lives in it now that is dear to my heart!)  It's already become a bit of a dumping ground.

By the time I struggled back up the high street and home, it was nearly 11 so I decided just to "veg out" for the rest of the day - sport on TV - heaven.  Stayed well out of the sun - I don't like the heat - bit like today is going to be! Grand Prix, football, more football..... lovely jubbly!!
