The Stamp Pad and Mandy's cake

I have the best day today.
This morning I baked flapjack to have for lunch with my best friend Mandy.  She arrived and after ALOT of chatting, getting excited at the tutorials for the make a cut software, and getting very giddy at all the files there are for the make the cut software we suddenly realised it was 1.10, we hadn't made lunch and Kath was picking us up at 1.30!!
After a rushed slice of cheese on toast and a generous piece of flapjack we got our coats on and jumped in Kath's car to go to The Stamp Pad.
We hadn't been before but Gill off UKScrappers told it was a great shop and she didn't lie.  Gwen has a sale on at the mo, which was a very generous 20% off EVERYTHING!  How we managed to come out with bankrupting ourselves I don't know.
If The Stamp pad is within driving distance for you it really is worth a visit.
Her address is:
The Stamp Pad
72 Chew Valley Road

She's taken our contact details so she can keep us informed of upcoming classes, which I just can't wait for.  The cards she had up on display were gorgeous, using a wide variety of stash and techniques.
If you are looking to go on a retreat, she's running one on the 18-20th March.  Details can be found here.
Although I would dearly love to go, my pennies wont stretch to it.
So unless I win the lottery, I'll just have to stick to her classes.
What was also nice about today was, I got to put faces to names.
Just by coincidence I bumped into Gill from Paper collector anon and Iolanthe from Paperstrokers Anonymous.

And now onto something completely different.
When Mandy showed me the Christmas cake she decorated, I knew I just had to share it with you all.

Isn't it gorgeous!!  There's no way I'd be able to cut into that.
The story behind the cake is that Father Christmas doesn't wake til 11.55, so here he is with just a few more minutes sleep to go.

Oh yes, nearly forgot.  I might have found a second hand cricut expression!!!  How good is that!!
Anyhow, thanks for dropping by, and for all your lovely comments, they really maake me smile,

What a gorgeous cake. I don't think I could eat that topper. I'd have to cut it away from the cake first!


Hope the expression comes your way, Hazel!
