New baby card

 One of my oldest friends has a new baby Grand daughter so whilst away at the craft retreat I borrowed a gorgeous stamp from the lovely Sue.  I believe its by Stampington and it looks gorgeous.
I didnt have any traditional sort of baby coloured papers with me so went for a different look entirely but I actually quite like it.  Certainly not the usual colour combo for a baby girl!

Saturday saw a wonderful day at The Craft Range in Burnley and it was wonderful to meet some blogland folks too.  I got to play with the new summer distress inks which are gorgeous as well as the Lindsay Mason stamps - sadly I didnt take pictures of my samples or the day - it just went by in a flash.
I was thrilled to meet Rosemary Merry and her Hubby Nigel who are just as lovely in real life.  Had a go at one stroke painting (def not my thing ) but I dont think my efforts would go on anyone's walls!!!

The down side to being in Craft Range all day was no phone signal so it wasn't until I got home I found out my son James had checked the Uni website and found he gained a first class honours for his music performance degree.  As you can imagine Saturday was then a huge celebration! 
Hope your weekend was as much fun as mine.
Thanks for stopping by x
