More snow, a small rant and last night's card.

An hour later...

The craft shop in Worthing has changed hands and everytime I go in there I'm overcharged, told that she hasn't any money to buy stock (the products I would like to see in stock apparently won't sell because her customers are "old fuddy-duddies") and scolded for "not" supporting my local craft shop (I payed Blade Rubber Stamps a visit whilst killing time in London and was stupid enough to mention it to her) so yesterday I hopped on the train to visit Harmony Crafts in Shoreham-by-sea. Diane, the owner was friendly but not pushy and has some amazing stock, things I want to buy, oh and I didn't get over-charged, in fact I picked up some Alchemy embossing powder at 50% retail! I also picked up the new Laura Ashley papers from Dovecraft, Tim Holtz Black Soot distressing ink and some Jolly Nation stamps (which are a little blocky in my opinion).

I bought this Toybox stamp in February on the aforementioned trip to London but have never used it. I decided to give it a go along with my new embossing powder last night. It looks stunning IRL but the photo doesn't capture this.

Hopefully I'll find some more time to play over the next week as the children are on their hols for a fortnight.
