Hi Debs

This is "super magical" . .. I love it!!!

It was quite around our shops on Saturday .. .. the only busy shop was Poundland!!!

I think we are nearly there gift wise. I just need something extra for my Mum (who says she doesn't want anything).

Still a few cards to make though and hubby's birthday tomorrow.

Hope you have managed to banish all of those germs from the house in readiness for this time next week!

Love Jules xx
