Hi a quick post tonight, I usually post on a Sunday but don't think I will manage to tomorrow.I made this card because I liked the digi stamp and wanted to try out my die cutting machine; it’s a cute stamp free from Dearie Dolls Digi’s, she is an amazing talented lady and the site has so many fab free digi's of all sorts. I love the cute mice on this one; I have actually made all the cards I need already so this is just for fun though I might give it to HB instead of the one I previously posted which I was going to use. I'm not planning to get much crafting done this weekend. We spent today out shopping at Stamford and the Christmas fair at Burghley House; we had a lovely time and got some great Christmas presents, which Is brilliant as I have very little bought so far…I'm usually much more organised! The plan is a quick post tonight as its unlikely I will get the opportunity tomorrow, really must do housework, ironing etc as I did so little since the weekend before last with being away for my birthday and work... time just disappears. Hope everyone has wonderful week. Hopefully I will get some blog hopping in some time and come visitHugs x
