Got me a new favourite...

Hello all,

A non-DT post from me! No, you're not seeing things. I have a new favourite stamp company you see, so I thought I'd play along with their challenge this week.

Now, those of you that have been around my blog a while will no doubt remember the obsession  great love I had from day one of crafting for Lili of the Valley. Of course I still adore their stamps, and if things had gone differently I'm certain I would have owned every single one of their stamps by now. But unfortunately they discontinued a huge amount of their stamps suddenly, they closed the physical shop (which was around the corner for me), they went digital, then went back to stamps, but now have a completely different style... For a obsessive collector like me, this proved a little too much chopping and changing, and while I still visit them from time to time for new stamps, and still use the old ones frequently, the shine kinda came off.

But I never did find any other style I loved as much as I did LotV. The front runners (Kenny K and Saturated Canary) both closed up shop, and I was beginning to think I'd struggle to find anyone to jump in to the top spot.


The company I'm talking about is The Paper Shelter, and while they are digi, and I do very much prefer rubber, I just absolutely adore their style, and the more I use them, the more I love them.
So you just know that I'm going to be doing my best to own every single one of their stamps, lol. Good thing I have a tax rebate due to help me with that!

Anyways, I came across this particular digi when doing a search for "cello" stamps (my mum's a cellist), and couldn't wait to play with it.

Isn't she gorgeous? Oh, and look... LotV papers, lol.

So, after all that, you bet I'll be joining in with the "going digital" challenge over at The Paper Shelter blog!

If you didn't bother reading all that, I don't blame you! Hehe...

That's it from me for now.
Have a fantabulous day!
