Special Delivery!

Hi I hope your all ok. Its gone blinkin cold here over the last few days brrrrr winter is on its way!!

We went to Jessica's funeral yesterday, it was so hard seeing my girls sobbing their hearts out & not being able to take away the pain. I managed to hold it together until Katie looked at me with a tear soaked face! We all ended up just hugging each other, its just awful such a young, beautiful girl taken way to early!
RIP JESS you will be missed hunnie xxx 

Today marks the start of a new challenge over at A&T Challenges, where this fortnight we have a fab sketch for you to follow, which you will find here!

I said a long time ago that I would never buy Spellbinders as they are way to expensive & you can get cheaper dies now, but these 'Resplendent Rectangles' I just had to have. I used Amy's when we had our crafty weekend away & fell in love with them. So as soon as Natalie & Amy's had them in stock again I got them & they are gorgeous!!
