Hi Ladies,
I am still here, just not had much chance to blog lately, i have a few cards to share but at the moment with DH being back from work, the kids being back to school and after school activities I don't seem to be able to grab 5 minutes to myself, added to that yesterday I started to feel ill, got a sore throat, it hurts when I swollow, then today got a headache, and sore eyes to go with the sore throat, never mind I've had a real do nothing day today, hopefully be back blogging soon.
Don't forget to pop over to Stamping for The Weekend tomorrow for a new challenge, this ones great, I've got a card ready for this challenge, even though I don't offically start on the DT until 4th September, looking forward to getting on with the challenges, believe me they are fab, you are going to love them
Take Care
