Sweet Stampin' - sympathy or thinking of you

Happy Saturday :o)

Our challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'sympathy or thinking of you', so I thought I'd use a brand new Hydrangea Set from DigiStamp Boutique, which includes the fab flower image and lots of useful sentiments.

Flower centres - Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White
Twill tape - Fantastic Ribbons

Pearls from my stash

I've been to test drive my new car today... eeeeeek!  For the last 17ish years I've driven a Corsa... the same Corsa for all those years, gradually getting more and more decrepit, but still plodding along and running fine.  I don't like change!  Recently I was driving along and the exhaust fell off lol, but that got fixed and all was well again.  But my lovely mum decided it was time for a new one, so she's only gone and bought me one!  It's a Nissan Note, not brand new, but a very swish and shiny upgrade from my old faithful falling to bits banger... it'll be coming home in a few days and instead of being excited I'm terrified, I can't imagine driving anything else!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, thanks for popping in :o)
