A little light stash acquisition

Sorry I've not been around much for the past few weeks, I'm currently on vacation in Florida and have very little access to the internet and hence, my blog.

However, my great crafting pal Kathy is also out here and we've managed to find time to do a little stash shopping and crafting - luckily our OH's get along well so they've gone off and done stuff together leaving us with time spend at the table of craftiness.

Today we took a trip to Lakeland to one of my favourite crafting stores Violettes, then on to Hobby Lobby, Michaels and finally Jo-Ann's.  Getting back mid afternoon meant we had a little crafting time and I created this entry for the Simply Less is More challenge launched today, which is a one layer card featuring 'wings'. 

My 'white space' is the kraft base card and I used a set of Dylusions stamps and Memento Inks with touches of Stardust Stickles to highlight bits of the images.

Here's me driving the 'Beast' (aka Chevrolet Surburban) that we rented for our stay (bit big in'it ? heee heee ) and you can just see Hobby Lobby in the background.  I need a stepladder to climb inside it and it has three rows of seats - great fun to drive though and just like sitting in an armchair !

This is likely to be my last post until I'm back in 'Blighty' as I'll need to pack up my new stash and try to squeeze it into the suitcase.  See you all when I'm back.
