Animal Antics at Penny Black & More

Good morning. What a busy day we had yesterday!! It started with a gorgeous cooked breakfast at Lisa's - thank you hun - followed by a 'smallish' shopping spree at Every Craft's a Pound and then a little crafty playtime - will share that project with you at a later date as I didn't quite manage to finish mine lol!!! Then onto Blackpool to see the lights and finished with a scrummy curry and then bed - what a day!!!

So today we are off to the GNPE and I am really looking forward to it - and of course a slightly 'bigger' shopping spree :o)

Before I go though I am so proud to be this month's Guest Designer for Allsorts sister blog

Here's what I did:

I love this uber cute PB image - Tokens of Love 3754K coloured it with PM's keeping to traditional red & green Christmas colours.
