Wish You Were Here!!

Hello & welcome to my DT creation for My Time To Craft. I've had a really busy week at work & also spending time with my mom (shopping lol) always a bad idea, mom always finds a bargain I can't resist lol...she is definitely bad for my bank balance. I'm going out with her again later to our local what was Craft Central, I got paid yesterday so I'm gonna get a stamp set I've been wanting for a while. Oh also my darling hubby brought me the 120 box of Faber-Castell  polychromes as a treat as they were half price!!! Cowling & Wilcox have an awesome sale on at the moment xx
