Hi all

Well my life is slowly getting back to normal. My dh's eye seems to be healing up well. He has also gotten to the stage that now he can put his own eye drops & cream in his eye. Although he hasn't got the ok to drive a car yet, he has gone back to work. I take him to work & his dad picks him up. At the moment he has tonight off & goes back to work tomorrow night. He has a check up in the morning so we are both hoping that he can get the ok to drive. Then life will definately be back to normal.

We just had a long weekend here in Queensland for the Queen's Birthday. So my dear friend Helen & I went to the Scrapbook & Papercraft Convention. It was my first time at this show & I have to say I loved every minute of it. It was without a doubt a scrappers/cardmakers paradise. Needless to say my budget sort of flew out the window. But like any wise crafter we went around all the stalls first before we brought anything. I must admit that I was getting a little dissapointed by the time we got to the last row of stalls as I hadn't seen any Hero Arts background stamps. But about half way down the very last aisle we came across the motherload!!!!!! It was fantastic, both Helen & I must have had grins from ear to ear, as our eyes feasted on the bins & bins of Hero Arts stamps. Both in clear sets & woodmounted. Best of all they where all the new stamp sets. The other great thing was that the prices where the lowest we had seen. So really it was a win-win situation.

I came away with heaps of goodies, inspiration & ideas. I even took some photots of things that inspired me. So I will have to get them printed & put into my ideas book. I also brought my first ever Penny Black stamps. They are clear set stamps & are so cute. I nearly brought one or two of the larger wood mount stamps but resisted.....just! So last night I made a card with one of the new Penny Black stamps. It was for the June cuttlebug challenge on flickr "Get well".
Thinking of you

Have a great week ahead, thanks for visiting & leaving comments..........TTFN
