My Shopping Trip!

Well yesterday I woke up feeling ok & as Nige is still off work until tomorrow :0(  we decided to go out for a while! We ended up at Hobbycraft....I spent nothing!!!! There was absolutely nothing I wanted!!!! Mmmmm Nige was rather shocked lol....we then went to an antiques center called Dagfields they have two small craft shops....I spent £1 lol on some cream antique lace! On the way home we popped into what used to be our local Craft Central & usually they have loadsa things in I want but nothing jumped out at me except this gorgeous stamp set, which Docrafts have done for Cancer Research....they are £6.95 with £2 being donated, which I thought was really good! Also these stamps are soooooooooooo outta my comfort zone, but I had loadsa fun getting
