I've been noticing this logo around on some of the blogs that I visit, so I hopped off to see what it's all about .... what a great idea!

If you haven'y been here before, hello and welcome.  If you have, bug hugs ... actually big hugs to all of you!

My name is Kay Bolton and we own, manufacture and run Toodles & Binks stamp company an on-line store Stamp Galaxy.  I am also the founder member of UK STampers, a fabulous stamping forum here in the UK.

What else can I tell you ........ mmmmm, 1 have 2 kids (Rob & Lydia), 1 dog (Russ), 1 cat (Felix) and a fabulous husband, Guy (aka Rubbah Fairy).

Please feel free to have a look around my blog.

I have three separate prizes to give away (open worldwide), so leave a comment if you are taking part and provide me with your blog details etc so I can contact you if you are lucky enough to win.  Closing date is 17th Feb 2011.

2 x sets of our Play Time Set 1 


one of my Fimo Cupcake Charms handmade by me. (plus a beaded stick pin or 2 to go with it).

Thanks for coming by.
