AnnaBelle Stamps - Say It With a Stamped Background

Hi Blogger's.....

Well not too sure what happened to my last post for AnnaBelle Stamps Friday challenge!!!! I had it all ready to go as Friday was moving in day for us!!!  Now I'll be the first to say that I was just a bit stressed on the run up to the move........ It had rained solid for 2 days prior to Thursday which was when they were loading up two vans with all our possessions :)   Not much sleep was had Wed. night but someone was looking down on us as at 7am when the van arrived the rain stopped!!! Unbelievable...  It was 5pm when Walshie and I left Sydney for the 4 hour drive and dry most of the way.  At 7am Friday we opened the doors and starting the unloading again dry weather even some sunshine.

The week end was mad! My packing list saved us a few times and by Sunday we had the lounge, 2 bedrooms and the kitchen sorted.......well at least looking a bit more like ours :)

I've been clearing and cleaning an area to use for my space today as Walsh has gone back down to Sydney. Joy of joys the new modem arrived and after an hour of messing around I think I'm back on line yeah!!! Kept the Gmail address but have a new Home one so will try and work out how to send that to my address book........anyone know how to do that in one quick step?????

Now to try and get back on track........ I'm not unpacking lots of boxes until the house in freshly painted and Walshie is already on to that!!  I do have a ready stash of goodies to play with though so will get back into things a.s.a.p.  

Now back to AnnaBelle's challenge for last Friday.......stamped backgrounds!  Not hard to do with the gorgeous sets Andrea has available in store.......go take a look!

I really like how this one turned out........hope you'll join in again this week.

Catch you soon................. x
