It's fixed... and Little Extra

Yep the cars fixed, phew. I did get patronised by a Kwik Fit Manager though, when I questioned his price. I'd found a place who quoted £50 less for the same thing and he gave me a good talking down to about questioning him. After which he said he'd price match ATS but after him talking to me like I was an imbecile I decided to wait and go elsewhere.

Worth shopping about when it comes to car stuff, the patronising mechanics give them all a bad name and they're not all like that.

Anyhooo, I'm back on the road! A couple of lovely deliveries today, Ribbon from Ribbon Oasis... drool and some gorgeous Gel-a-tins stamps, buttons and brackets, you can never have enough of either in my opinion.

Today's Daring Cardmakers Little Extra is Post Haste, to use a REAL postage stamp on a card. Luckily I collect stamps for the RSPB (its a freepost address to send them off), so I raided my envelope and found a few beauties, including this really pretty German stamp.


The colours inspired the whole card, Dovecraft and DCWV papers, Ribbon Oasis ribbon, (yep used some already!) , Sassafrass Lass and Doodlebug stamps.
