Hi blogging buddies!
Mr Postie arrived yesterday with a lovely parcel from Stampin Up.  Unfortunately the first stamps I've used were sympathy ones.  I had real trouble trying to get the sentiment straight on the card so ended up stamping it on a separate piece then adding it.  I'm still not convinced it's straight mind you but it's the best I can do.

Mr C is out with the dog so I thought I'd have a play in the craftroom.  I'm waiting for an engineer to call this afternoon as our fridge isn't cooling, luckily though it's still under guarantee!  On the down side I got a Tesco shop delivered when we came home and this happened the following day and because it was Easter weekend I coudn't phone about it till Tuesday so the majority of the stuff had to be binned, grrr!  If he says he doesn't have a part or can't fix it there will be a few choice words spoken!  I'll keep you posted.

Right, off to get crafting.

Sympathy cards are so very hard to do. And that one is really really elegant. Totally love the tag on it.
