Man's Best Friend

Did you wonder if l had got lost at Wembley as l have not posted this week?? Bradford City did us proud and won promotion, it was the first time we have been to Wembley as we did not go down to the cup match. My son and l had a fantastic time shouting and cheering, the atmosphere was special and we will remember it for a long time.
I bought this gorgeous stamp from LOTV a couple of weeks ago - along with 3 more of the new boys vintage release, they are just shouting out to be inked up.
The paper l bought on a holiday in Florida a couple of years ago and the hessian is from a bag of blue mountain coffee beans l bought in Jamaica - brownie points for me for recycling lol
