'Fizzy Is Back'

Oh what a fab day we had on Saturday at the 'Summer of Crafting' in Doncaster! Myself & Kim did lots of giggling & spending, it was a fantastic day! Thanks you so much Kim, can't wait for you to come over to ours, so I can introduce you & David to our girlies, Charlie dawg, Freddie the gheko & of course Saxon the wolf!! We are gonna have a fab time!

Anyhoos I have got a bit sidetracked, today's card was made last minute yesterday....I have no idea what my brain is doing at the moment, I looked at the date for the craft fair & thought oh I best get my Sparkles card done before I go, because I'm gonna want to do on the Sunday is sleep! Oops no idea when it fell out of my brain but it did, I only realised it was due today when I was watching England beat Australia in the Ashes (happy dance) & the date came up on the TV for the 2nd test, then oh boy did I panic!!!
I just loved 'Fizzy Moon' when he first came out a few years ago & ended up buying all of the stamps & papers, but these new ones are so cute & cheap just perfect for a CAS creation....well that's what it was meant to be, but I had lots of fun making this card & even if it was rushed I am really happy with the and result! Wow!! who knew I could write so much....I just hope it makes sense lol I am soooooooooooooooooo tired..xx
