It's Saturday, yay that means two days with Nige & the girlies. Even tho Nige will be out walking most of today & tomorrow we can't go far because Danni is revising for her exams, again!!

Its time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft, this week we want you to


so when you have finished the front, carry on inside....can't wait to see what you make!

I have used one of the new images from The Stamping Chef. It is so not me, but I just loved her as soon as I saw her. I decided to go all dark & maybe vintage with my colours....do you think its vintage?

 I haven't put a sentiment on the front or inside, because I'm not sure who I'm going to send it to!
