Just "ONE!!! Stamp

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  I love that you call by and leave all your wonderful comments, thank you so much for that.   It makes this journey so much more fun.
Is it just me or is this week passing rather quickly, its Tuesday evening already. 
I love to look at what Jenny http://pushingtherightbuttons.blogspot.co.uk/ does with her stamps, inks and fantastic talents.   She makes the most worderful "works of art"  way different from anything I have ever done.  However she has got me thinking.   I have been playing with "just one stamp"........... it is a very, very old Clarity Stamp.  I think it must be at least 15 years old.  I was rummaging in a tub of stamps out in the shed, came across a few long forgotten oldies.  I rescued a few to bring into the house.
Here is what I managed  to create...................way, way different for me.  Surprisingly, not a Rose,  flower, Die Cut or bow to be seen.  I did enjoy doing this so there might just be more stamping creations in the future.

"Same but different & New Arrivals"

Welcome everyone!! Hope all is good with you if not here are a few (((((hugs))))) to help.
Miserable weather here and still quite cold.  We had 5s & 6 degrees here in North East Scotland yesterday, they were getting in the high "teens" down south.....how fair is that????
John and I went over to Kinross, Fife yesterday to a Craft Fair.  It was one of the best I have been to in a long time.  Lots and lots of beautiful Hand Crafted things.  I am sick of going to Fairs and finding "Bought In Stuff" both when visiting as well as participating.  Hazel and I have given up doing Craft Fairs for that very reason.  The other thing that gets me is, you approach a Stall and the Stall Holder is sitting, some never lift their heads to acknowledge you are there......how rude.  I passed 4 stalls yesterday before any one even said Good Morning.  When I did get a Good Morning I thanked the lady and told her she was the first to greet us. 
End of moan..............!!  I am actually in a very good mood this morning.
We are off along to J & As later, so fun time there with the boys.  Robert has "promised" to let us here his latest pieces on his DRUMS!!!! Where did I put those Earplugs.  He is actually very good it is just the noise level.  Good job they have no real close neighbours.
My card today is the mans version of the last one I posted

Here are our new arrivals.  They belong to our neighbour and are in a little field over our back garden fence.  As soon as they hear our back door opening they run over.  Very tame, the mums are very trusting and let us pat the lambs, they are so soft and cuddly.






We have the most wonderful neighbours that give us endless pleasure and no problems
John wonders why I never eat lamb............can you blame me???

That`s it for today 
Thank you for taking time to call by I really appreciate it
Till next time
