With thanks

Hello to you all and I hope this finds you well. 

Too wet to play outside for long today so once all pony and dog amusement was over and domestic chores completed I first had a bit of a baking session (chocolate chip brownies and a carrot and orange loaf) followed by a play with new and/or unused bits and pieces that were covering my desk!!


The only item on this card that isn't new is the stamp and my Promarkers. The image was  a Customer Competition Challenge win at Digistamp Boutique and is Grace and Puppy (now retired I think). The lovely papers and buttons were from a  candy win from Sammy (I'm working my way through the bundle now!!)...you thought I'd been buying again didn't you?!! New stuff doesn't always mean parting with pennies you know!!

I was also inspired to play along with these challenges

Papertake Weekly - New Year, New Stash
Just Inspirational - Children
Creative Craft challenges 2 #1 - New (digi and papers)
 Creative Inspirations #248 - Anything goes + Sketch 
Rhedd & Rosie #24 - No White
Fab 'n' Funky #199 - 1 Image, 2 buttons and 3 papers
Digistamp Boutique - January Customer Competition

Well, the heavens have opened again and someone out in the field is shouting at me because she's getting wet (wearing a rug mind you!!) so I had better go and put the beast to bed!!

Thank you for stopping by and, as always, for your kind words of encouragement xx
