Peek a Wizard

 You all know just how Harry Potter mad my little girl is, so when I saw this stamp by Penny Black, I needed it. It has to be the longest time I have had a stamp without ever inking it up, it has sat unloved for at least 3 weeks, while I have been killing myself desperately trying to decorate our new garden room and get that up and running as a permeant craft space and family games room.

But we are getting somewhere, the plumber is here today and I will be under his feet in there, so I stamped this up, boiled the kettle and have settled down to 30 minutes me time. Long over due....

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
