Hello There....I'm Back!!

This is my first post for today, please pop back later to see my monthly creation for Natalie & Amy's! xx

I can't believe its two whole weeks since I posted anything on my blog!! Time has just flown! I couldn't post anything on here before I went away, even tho I have the cards sitting here, the internet was down for a few days so no posting from me. Then I went on my crafty get away & ended up staying a few days longer than expected....but oh we did giggle & I had Katie with me as well so ended up spending soooo many pennies, but I've got some awesome goodies to play with! Then when I got back Nige was off work so we had a few days out. Also for those who remember this time last year, it was a year Monday since our Katie's best friend passed away, so Monday was spent with the girls at Liverpool museum...not sure which one but the one with the dinosaurs in lol!

Anyhoos I'm here today to show you my creation for, The Perfect Sentiment.

You are right about that image Shell, it is a cracker! Love your colouring, especially the 'glow' around the house. I also love that you tilted the torn rectangle piece behind the image - it is so right for this card! Super dp behind too! Thanks so much for joining us for this last challenge week at the Sweet Stop. Hugs, Ann
