I’m in love with a White Box & ‘So very grateful’ stamp set

I’m over the top excited about an online order I made a week or so ago… and it arrived today!!!!! But before I tell you about that I must update you on Archer.

Last week I told you about how my little Archer started Kindy and I had a few ugly tears. I recovered but my little man sure was sleepy when he wasn’t at Kindy. There was a LOT of this……..


I have bad news to report, things took a turn for the worst this morning with my poor little fella screaming the Kindy down with a lot of “I want to go home with you MUMMY!!!” and “Don’t leave me!!!!” this continued for about 30mins before the Kindy teacher finally had to pry him off of me while hurrying me out the door. Kindy rang me a while later to tell me he was now incredibly happy and having a great time .*sigh*. Wonderful right?? But then why did I feel like a train wreck all day? I’m now bracing for tomorrow. Wish me luck.

On a great note however…. The white box arrived!!! What’s the white box?? So a bit of back story. As you can imagine I take a lot of photos of cards I make and I make a lot of the cards at night (as that’s when the boys have gone to bed) but I can’t take the photos until the morning and sometimes the light isn’t wonderful even then. So I bought………


Doesn’t look much at the moment but it will once I finally put it all together it looked like this….


But the really wonderful thing is that it lets me take photos like this….

What do you think?? Cool hey?

I’ve used a couple of new stamp sets for this card. The ‘So very grateful’ set from the Occasions Catalogue for the flowers which I had such a blast water colouring and the sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set called ‘You’re So Lovely’.
