I managed a little play last night with some new stash I bought in McOyster Crafts in Cupar yesterday. They had a lovely demonstration day which I decided to go to at the last minute. We live about 50 miles away, so it was a nice day out with a lovely lunch. 

My photos are not very good, I used my little camera and the light is poor as the weather is dull and wet.




I used Tattered Lace shoe die, Cuttle bug embossing folder, Papermill card, Woodware flowers and leaf punches and the rest from my stash.
