Ooh, I Want A Slice Of That Cake!

Afternoon all, are you enjoying the sunshine?  We whizzed down the A12 to Colchester today as Toad wanted a new home-brew kit and on the way back we called in at the garden centre that just happens to have a craft outlet (snigger snigger) and, according to the thermometer on the car we reached the heady heights of 10C!  Whoooo, when was the last time we were in double figures then?  Mind you, that wind still has a nasty bite to it but it is almost Springlike out there today.

My lovely blogging pal and virtual sis, Zippy, treated me to some delicious Wild Rose Studio stamps for Easter.  What's a girl to do when faced with the choice of rubber or chocolate?  Well of course the rubber won hands down.  Here is one of the stamps she gave me:

This is Birthday Girl from Wild Rose Studio, and she is a rubber cling stamp rather
than the normal clear acrylic
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick
Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry
Papers are all from a new Papermania pad that I picked up yesterday but I
forgot to make a note of the name of it (d'oh)
Martha Stewart border punch, Papermania gems and a Personal Impressions sentiment to finish

Hugs, Squirrel xx
