My new favourite stamp!!

Every time I try out a new stamp for the first time it instantly takes the place of my “favourite stamp”. As I buy more and more I love each one with a new passion!! That’s not to say I don’t love my old ones (when I say old, I mean the ones I bought last week and the week before!!) but there’s something about the latest one that just fills me with glee!!! This is my said latest aquisition, “Post box” by Sugar Nellie. It’s the same one as I’m giving away in my blog candy (thank heavens I bought two – otherwise I’d be away photoshopping that photo now!!). She’s lovely isn’t she? I have coloured her with my promarkers – love these so much – and added stickles here and there (round the edge of the image and on the flowers – you can’t see it though!!). This is my take on the sketch over at Sketch Saturday but I am also putting it into the challenge at Charisma cards which is “Favourite things”. It qualifies on two counts – favourite stamp (see above) and favourite thing – GLITTER of course!
We’re having a dinner party tonight for some friends and being the wuss that I am, I am repeating the exact menu I did for the Valentine’s meal I cooked!! It was all prepared in advance and took very little time to actually cook! Plus, which is a bonus, everyone liked it! lol. Must go and make my Lamb and Chorizo with tzatziki dressing starter! (ooh, get me!).
