Hope you had a lovely weekend.
I've not been around much the past few days as I've been spending some time with my two gorgeous
 Grand-daughters - Lola Arizona and Ruby Mae - I have some photos to share with you at the end of my post.

I have also been trying to get ahead with my DT work for next month as I am due to go into hospital on Friday 12 July to have an op on my elbow :o(

Anyway enough about that - today I'm here to share my DT card for


and this fortnight our theme is


Taking my initial inspiration from the sketch at Sketch n Stash -
