Well the sun is out, but for how long I don't know...popping out to Hobbycraft, my corner rounder punch has gone walkies & I use it loads so Nige is taking me to get a new one lol....Also my fab hubby is talking me up to Harragate for the craft show 10th - 11th september anyone going? would be great to meet up!!

For my DT card this week I have use another Hope Jacare image called Holly, I think she is just gorgeous....when I was putting my card together our Katie came for a nose & had me giggling...she said .."mommy she is very pretty, but wouldn't she end up with all cuts on her legs from the prickles?" I tried my hardest not to laugh...the little sweetie x you gotta love um!!!
Anyways on with my make for OSAAT....our sponsor this week is none other than Stitchy Bear & the winner will receive three digi images of their choice woohooo!!! so why not get out ya punches & join in...
