Oh I Loves This Card

Well our packing is slowly but surely getting there, pretty much finished the kitchen, just stuff we still need. Oh & all my craft stuff is half done lol, I've still got one DT card to make so will finish packing it up after I've done that tomorrow...Well we pick the keys up tomorrow night at 4, we are gonna go around & give it a good clean & hoover through (might even get Nige to use our Vax & wash the carpets) also let Charlie have a good sniff around. Then home to finish packing, bed early, up early gotta pick the van up at 8.30 got my mate coming round at 8.30 to help & Niges cousin Fletch is also popping round just to help with the heavy stuff...washing machine, dish washer, fridge freezer that sorta thing....Oh the joys lol
Also I managed to measure the hound lol...his leg is much better healing up nicely, still growls when I clean it with salt water, but then he realises growling's not nice & starts crying...such a mardy dog very funny...so with out further ado the winner of the MAWTT blog hop goodies from my blog is
  Ellephantastic Cards & Crafts with her guess of 52inches.....
and Charlie is 54 inches long...please email me hun.. shell-swinscoe@virginmedia.com
I will post them out to you as soon as I can, but please bare with me because of the move xx
