'Sweet Tooth!'

Oops....Mr Blogger doesn't like me any more or he just forgot to post this for me yesterday!

I hope you all had a fab weekend & the weather was good for you! Friday I crafted most of the day, Saturday I ended up watching a few films with the girlies & Sunday well....Nige took me to the Roaches which up until now (health wise) I've always said nope to walking. Well after spending all this time at Gentleshaw, I feel fitter & to a certain extent kicking M.E. butt!! So we ended up walking 4 miles, which doesn't sound much, but when its scrabbling up & down rocks its hard work. But we had so much fun, lots of giggling & talking. Was really nice it just being me & Nige! 
Yesterday was spent cuddling lots of animals at Gentleshaw....

Managed to sneak a peek when Nige was feeding Pepper (mommy Coati) There is three but the other one is hiding behind! So cute!

Anyhoos on with the good stuff. Today is the start of a new challenge over at 'Try Stampin' on Tuesday!' where this week we have another fabulous sketch for you (here or later in my post) but with a twist should you choose! The twist is.....
