Whenever I get new stamps in the mail (and this happens quite frequently, funnily enough ;o)) I get so excited that I can't decide which one to play with first! This weekend I used another Sarah Kay stamp, and also an old Magnolia that I've never used before...something old, something new if you will ;o)
I've also started experimenting with a white background for the photos, it looks so much better! And all it took were a couple sheets of cardstock, one taped to the wall and one on the sideboard...if only I'd thought of that sooner ;o)
Meet Footballing Freddie, who spends a lot of time in the backyard with his dog Rufus, practising his football skills (or lamenting lack of said skills ;o)). You see, he's not getting the hang of it yet, and his ball keeps ending up on the neighbours' roof (luckily his neighbour is a good sport about it) or in his mum's flowers (she was less of a good sport ;o)), and the other day it even ended up in the garbage truck, which happened to be passing at the time! If it was up to Freddie he'd have left it there, but his father has this dream you see, that Freddie will become a great footballer like David Beckham, so he keeps on practising. He really would like to study to be an accountant, but he wants to be a good sport too ;o)
