A great festival and a lovely play with new Indigoblu stamps

Hello Lovelies! How are you? I hope you have had a great bank holiday weekend. We got back from the festival late yesterday - I will show you some pics shortly! It was great fun.

Tonight I boxed up my samples for Saturday's Chocolate baroque show and turned my attention to my new indigo blu stamps - I had a little play and made this card using the wild poppy set.

I used distress inks and one of the new TH layering stencils too. Such a pretty stamp set - love it!

A bit of an arty view - a bit blurred too!!!

So the festival - Solfest 2017. I took the girls on the understanding that there was a family camping field. Sadly when we got there this wasn't the case so we were in amongst the revellers! It wasn't ideal but I think it bothered me more than them. The childrens activities were's some pics to give you a flavour!
