Pearls, Flowers & Pins!

Well this card nearly didn't get made, I'm still getting used to Crafty Sentiments being on a Tuesday instead of a Thursday!! So hadn't even thought about doing my card oops!!

Well for those of you who left comments about the footie...it was fantastic, absolutely loved it & I did manage to keep quiet when Newcastle scored twice (oops) but I decided after getting abit over excited about the fact that Cabaye, Taylor, Bambi & all the others were just in front of me on the pitch! I did get myself in a flap...lol! After that I decided when the match started I would just forget it was Newcastle & support Wolves....well I think my girlies were really shocked & embarrassed & they both said on the way home that I turned into a different person...I was only shouting at the ref cus he was crap, Wolves should of had penalty & a goal that was disallowed was a goal...So all in all it should have been a draw (between you & me don't tell Nige but Wolves should have won!), but it was such a fab day we have decided to go regularly now as both of the girls loved it!! I have got a few pics on my phone, but can't find the cable....will post when Nige finds it for me lololol!!
