Sketch Time at Charisma Cardz

Good morning.
Hope you're having a great week so far :o)
Mine has been a bit of a mare - started with Jack being poorly and then yesterday evening I thought  I had lost my blog!!!! I was trying to leave comments and kept having to re-enter my password to login to Blogger - then I got a message saying my blog had been removed and I had to enter my telephone number to get a verification code??? After much searching through Blogger help and nearly tearing my hair out I decided to just enter my mobile number. I do hope I did the right thing - I did get a code and once I entered it I was able to get logged on and my blog appeared - fingers crossed nothing bad happens now!
What a panic I had though - life without a blog!!!????!!! Not sure I would know what to do with myself :o)

Today is sure to be a good day though as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is coming to play.

But before he arrives I have another DT card to share with you for
