Oooo I'm so excited my Spring 08 Tilda stamps arrived this morning...Yippee! But they have arrived as just rubber :-( Can someone/anyone, please tell me, do I just need to buy 'EZ cling mounting foam' to attach them to?????? (or is it something else) I NEED to play, they are gorgeous! :-)

Just to let you know all went well, very smooth. Apart from Mum getting herself locked in a cupboard for 1/2 an hour an no-one knew where she was!!! (don't ask!)......
Anyway, she seems very happy and relatively straight really.
Hope to get time to play with new crafty bits tom - so watch this space and I will try and post some cards this week!!

Meet the guys and girls I work with, last night we held a Charity Netball Match. It was a 'girls v boys' match - with the boys wearing pink fluffy tutu's!! We had a great night, but it was freezing cold. Only Earl (our Company mascot) was warm!
It was all in aid of LIVES and we raised £150.
It's moving day for Mum tomorrow, please don't rain!!
Ohhh and my Glitter Pot delivery arrived today - can't wait to play - just need to find time!
My son is currently running around the room screaming and shouting, his beloved Chelsea have just scored a 95th minute 'away' goal in the Champions League!! with only seconds to go......Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1.

Hi all, I am delighted to be a member of the Sisterhood 17 of Blogging Stampers!
I am Sue, very nearly 42, married with 1 son Sam who will be 12 next week! I have been crafting for about 4 years, I love scrapbooking, but have recently started card making again. After some recent blog hopping, I kept coming across Tilda stamps ....... which by the way I am now addicted to!! (I am just waiting for an order to arrive)
I hope to visit all 'my sisters' blogs over the next few days to say 'Hi'.
It's manic (and expensive!) at this time of year for birthday's:
April 11th Mother-in-Law (it was her 70th)
April 26th My Mum (who is moving house on Wed 23rd)
May 1st Sam will be 12!! (nearly a teenager)
MAY 8th MINE - yippeeeeee (I'll be 42 - but don't tell anyone!!)
May 19th Chris' (who I don't have a clue what to get)
Oooo it's just all go....and yes... we have 3 'Taurus' birthday's all living under one roof - and yes it's true we are stubborn (very) and hot headed (at times!)
But I promise I will post some crafting.....during all this mania!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend....think of me ...I'm at work!

I am very tempted to update my trusted old red Sizzix machine for a shiny new model. But heres the question - will it be a Cuttlebug or the new black/pink Big Shot???
I am swaying towards the Big Shot, both are similar in price but I think the Big Shot will do more?!? Anyone have any advice?? What do you use?? Feel free to vote in the poll.
Does anyone know if the Cuttlebug embossing folders work well in the Big Shot?? because I love the effect they give.
20th April - 99% certain it will be the Big Shot!
Thanks for all your help - very much appreciated.

I have wanted a new tripod to go with my Canon 400 for months, but couldn't decide what to go for. In a recent issue of 'photoplus' magazine, this Manfrotto 190XB with 390RC2 head was rated highly....so I've done it. I have ordered it from Jessops, for collection tomorrow.
