Met Brenda at Sir Stampalot!

 Just in case anyone noticed, I should say I've been on holiday! We had a lovely time in Cambridgeshire, Oxfordshire and the Lake District and it was great to see my family over there again!

As you can see from the photo above I also had the perfect opportunity to meet up with Brenda and where better to meet than in Sir Stampalot. (That's Brenda on the left and me on the right!) We had a wonderful time and it was lovely actually to meet face to face. Thanks, Brenda, for the coffee and cream buns!! Fortunately both of us seem to have extremely patient husbands....while we were poking through crafting goodies David and Eddie were sorting the world out!!

You do know, of course that I couldn't leave a super shop like that without treating I bought a Martha Stewart punch set, a couple of embossing folders, gimgham ribbon and black and white papers (etc!) and I've now made this card using them along with my Stargazer lily digi image.

I'm entering this card into a couple of challenges ( more than 6!!)
