 Good morning. WOW it seems like ages since I last posted (live) lol!!! We are back from our jolly holidays and what a fabulous time we had. Lots of laughter and lovely snuggles with little Lola Arizona, great food and some beautiful sunny sunshine :-)

This is going to be a  long post - 2 DT cards to share with you and lots of holiday snaps too - so grab a cuppa and relax :-)

To start here's my DT card for this week's
