Meet the Clangers and some Christmas Clarity
A few bits from a recent Clarity Stamp Show - I used some lovely K & Co Christmas papers that were a purchase from Graphicus. The images were stamped with a selection of Memento Inks which if you haven't tried yet you may find have a compulsory purchase order on them (also available from Graphicus).
As an aside if anyone is planning a trip to Barnard Castle I would recommend a visit to The Bowes Museum. They have a fantastic exhibition of the history of children's tv complete with puppets, drawings and stage sets. My day was complete when I met The Clangers, the Soup Dragon and even a Magical Boat - you may well remember the one that sailed across the sky with the musical notes twirling. I went with a friend and our children told us to behave! Can you believe that. Other favorites who are there include Ivor The Engine, Muffin The Mule, Andy Pandy, Paddington Bear - we did hunt for Aunt Lucy but discovered she was away on holiday as the damp weather was getting to her a bit. There are more recent additions as well - go for a trip down memory lane. Since coming home I have emptied my stamp collection looking for a Paddington Bear stamp I purchased years ago - put it this way the hunt is still on.
For today's adventure we are off to be taught Archery!! It's fun being a Mum!
Enjoy your day
