WOYWWW - New Greenhouse Stamps !

Well not much action on the desk this week - but some lovely retail therapy !
I saw these stamps from Stamposauraus advertised in Craft Stamper & thought they would be great for the scrapbook layouts I make about my garden over the summer months !
They arrived this morning & I am really pleased with them - I'm getting nice clear, crisply stamped images & I love the fun quirky designs !
Looking forward to stamping & colouring them in - its like being a kid again - but now my box of crayons are posh Pro-markers & watercolour pencils !!
Also on my desk are 2 canvasses & the rules for entering the art competition in our local family run art shop.
Back in January I was reading a book about giving yourself a kick up the rear about your art & setting goals for yourself (but still having fun !!) - one idea was to show your art - and the entries for this competition get put into the shop window.
So this is a tiny step of putting my work out there in the big wide world !
And supporting a family business - on the use 'em or loose 'em principle !
So I just have to decide what I'm going to do now !!!!

Have a fun crafty week everyone !
