I shopped - then shopped some more

This will be realy quick, because the Liverpool game is about to start (and my cup of tea is getting cold)

Went to Stevenage today - saw some great things - learned some great new techniques - and - errrm.... shopped a bit... Here are the pics (no way was it all fitting in one shot today)

Some Tim stamps (very good price!)
 A large pile of stash from LB Crafts. ...
 A closer look. 

And some other buys - that tree (stampscapes) is not new though I don't remember ever seeing it before - looks fantastic stamped - it's called a "shagbark hickory" tree....ok,  right!!
Hels was demo'ing with wax and made it look so easy I bought some, and a dinky little heart mould.
And some fab samples I was given. The UTEE heart is from Jennie (artistic stamper) - it made it home in one piece, Jennie!!, the bookmark is from Shirley Barnes who has the UK distribution for Stampscapes - I was telling her I'd never used my wave stamp that she used here so she was kind enough to give this to me.

And lastly, this gorgeous piece from the FAB Lin Brown - this is so lovely, Lin. It is going on my wall, very soon!

Got to go watch the Liverpool game now - so will play with some of this later on. See you then....

Oh, and because I was back early enough, I picked up the Kew photos from yesterday, so there's some of them up on my  "photosbyh" blog.

Wow you purchased some great goodies, love the look of that metal crown, what make is that and love the heart mould, is that from Jennie? Wish I could have gone. As usual there is so much I want and that's before the new stuff comes out. Enjoy playing with your goodies. Tracy Evans x

Wow, I wish I lived near you!! But as you know, I live in Michigan and I'm sure you'll be interested to know that Shagbark Hickorys grow wild here!! And as interesting as they are, that's really random that they made a stamp of one!
