For My Roomie!

Just a quick post from me today & I'm hoping Mr B is playing along & posts for me. I am having to sort my post out on Friday night as we are off out early to help out at Gentleshaw. It's going to be a bit sad this weekend as one of the Capuchin monkeys Toto sadly died on Wednesday night so everyone is feeling upset. Hopefully I am going to get chance to play with Alfie again (the skunk) it kinda makes it more real that I'm having one lol! So much for this being a short post lol!

This week over at My Time To Craft, we want to see you 


I decided to use the I & the U from my Forever Friends I heart (its a Forever Friends bear holding a heart) U stamp set. I just love the way it's turned out. Now I'm just hoping Ruthie (my roomie when we go away) stays away from my blog log enough for me to post it!
