Hello my blogging friends, I hope you all enjoyed the fab weather we had over the weekend.I spent most of it indoors packing boxes lol....
I have got some good news to share, I have been asked to join the DT over on

On the house front..we are looking at one tonight at 6.30 that is a definite possible lol..so fingers crossed.

I've got two cards for you today, first my DT card for 'The Crazy Challenge' the theme this week is 'You're A Star' I had sooooooooo much trouble with this one, I blame the footie lol. All I could think about was football all week, so I asked a few friends & hubby. Started making a card, then Danni our eldest decided to tell me her best mates birthday is today, & could I make her a card....as if I'm sitting down doing nothing arrrgggghhh kids x Well all I knew was that she goes horse riding twice a week. I had a look throught my images & stamps & found this one, not sure where I had it from sorry...if someone knows please let me know then I can credit the artist x

Oh Nige also got me a new watermark, having probs finding an easy
way to put it on my cards tho, so any help is very welcome..
