Look what I got!!

OOOOh I was sooo excited this morning! I was one of the lucky 3 to win a "PIF" from Debbie! I received this lovely folder full of images and little bits n bobs...what made it even better was that I don't have any of these stamps myself so each one was a real "treasure"! Thank you sooo much Debbie - I love it all!

I was so inspired by the little folder that I got stuck straight in and made 3 for my PIF's! They're great fun to make and I'll definitely make them again!

Well I reckon I'd fail this photography least they're ready and you get the idea of what they're like! Now I like to be different...and mix things up a little...instead of the first 3 people to comment on this post, I'm going to give everyone who comments on this post a chance to win one of these 3 PIF's (you only have until my next post to comment)...all names will be pulled out of the proverbial "hat"!! I'm not sure if it HAS to be the first 3, but I'm going to do it like this until the PIF police tell me otherwise!!!!!!!!!!!

This is another of my mum's new stamps - isn't she gorgeous? I particularly love her as I think she can be used for numerous occasions, and I love that!

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. My hubby gave me a "crafty IOU" for my pressie...he promises it will be worth the little delay...I'm excited!! I also received a beautiful bouquet of pink roses - I love fresh flowers in my home!

The new stamps from my sister are fabulous - I love them all!!

My breakfast yesterday was a fresh cream cocunut macaroon drizzled with lemon sauce and a big mugga T.....YUM! I happened to "mention" this in an email to Ila yesterday...she was suitably droolin'...she wondered what i was having for you can blame her for the next bit!

We went to Bengal Brasserie (well worth a visit next time you're in Belfast LOL!)...oh my was delish! We feasted on "bengal tapas" - a mixture of indian cooked starters...yum yum! That was followed up with chicken balti and lamb rogan josh, garlic nan, boiled rice and chips...a proper feast...I ate til I was fit to burst...all delightfully washed down by "Big Ass Chardonnay"...don't let the name fool you - it was heaven! So there you have it Ila...I was definitely queen B yesterday!

Wow...that's a long post from me...before I finish I just want to mention that I will be having a "birthday candy challenge" soon. I hope you're all ready for some fun!! bx
