Bright…but soft…lol

Im in by the skin of me teeth wi this one for the Shabby Tea Room and Let’s craft and create. The Shabby tea room wanted ‘ruffles’ and craft and create wanted ‘sewing’….Soooo what did i do??? I sewed me ruffle Smile hehe! The pics are rather crappy as i have taken them tonight, so it’s electric light i’m afraid.

I used a new My minds eye doily stamp set (Stella and Rose) that i got last week! LOVE it! and it was only £5.99..absolute bargain!! I also used me new embossing folder again(I LOVE it sooo much) And of course i used me PTI button boutique stamp set…hehe, ya just already know that i love this ! I stull haven’t really created much with it yet though. I SO WISH pti would reduce their shipping costs to the uk. There are lots of things that i would like to get and would prob order every month, but it’s simply way to expensive, as if it’s only a small order the shipping is like 2x or 4 x the cost of your order, then another daft anount at this end by customs. And if you place a large order to get the most from the shipping then customs here really do get ya! The whole thing just really isn’t worth it. Every month i look on at the new realeases and im like…OOh i’d love to have that…and that…ooh i need that…i want that! lol

The postage really doesn’t have to be that high at all, it’s ridiculous. (I reckon it’s just a ploy to keep all that pti goodness in the states, they just don’t want us brits to have it! that’s what i reckon)

A couple of weeks ago i placed on order with My time made easy for some stamps. The shipping only worked out at about £3 or less, in fact im sure it was less…lol Anyhows, i ordered on a saturday…and on thursday , just 5 DAYS later my stamps dropped through my letterbox! Now that IS cheap postage and 1st class service! When the postage is that price you can afford to make small regular orders, that way it keeps customs away…lol
