My friend Melanie has a birthday today. She has always maintained that we are sisters, twins separated at birth. But she is older than me, by six months, so this is something of a medical marvel!
Anyway the reason I am blogging about Mel is that she was the person who first introduced me to stamping so so many years ago when we were young mums and neighbours. So I have been taking a little stroll down Memory Lane, where it is not raining but always sunny!
I still have my first ever stamp, in this picture it is the little flower silhouette in the middle. The other stamps are some of my oldest, the ones that started it all off.

Told you it was sunny down Memory Lane!
