Shhhhh There's Fairies At The Bottom Of The Garden......

....well Katie thinks so!!!

Wow! Its Saturday again & I hope the weather this weekend is better than last! I have a touch of cabin fever, really need to get out in the fresh air for a few hours...I am hoping that Nige will nip us to a place I just love going call Lady Bower
 (sp? sorry if its wrong) its just beautiful there & they have a resident family of Cormarants which are my favourite birds (yep I do have a phobia of birds lol but as long as they don't come near me I'm ok!!) so hopefully if we go we will get some pictures!! Talking of pictures I need to ask you a favour, can you please pop over to Niges blog he has finally decided to put some of hus gorgeous pictures of birds on the web!!! My favourite is his swan coming in to land!! He took that ages ago, but its still one of my favourites! Thank you in advance xxx

Right onto todays challenge at Crafty Emma's! This week we have a fab

I decided to do Niges Valentines day card! (maybe anyways not sure yet, I think it might be a bit to girlie for him!!)  using a stamp I've had for an absolute age, but never inked up....bad Shell!!
