2 days all to myself!!

The problem with having a high flying Mrs is she has to go away...this used to leave me with nothing to do...that is until I found crafting lol!!!

So I got her up at 6.40am and sent her off to Oxford for a 'meeting'. The meeting which includes bowling and a nice meal!!! Mmmmmm...

Well, I am off to the in-laws round the corner for tea... but thought...let's have a day of crafting today so that turned into let's clean the craft room ready for the new furniture (which I hoping will be here soon if it stops snowing!!)

I have enjoyed today and made this card... I wanted to enter the Sweet Stamping challenge and was wondering what family occasion I had coming up, then my sister called to say my 4 month old nephew Will was unwell...Then I saw this Digi image..and the rest as they say is history lol....

I had the image but couldn't decide what to do so I searched blogland and found this sketch on midnight madness so this card will be going into the two challenges:

Midnight Madness - Sketch

Thanks for looking xx
