Thanks for popping by to see me and for all the lovely comments you have left recently - I really do appreciate your support.

We had a fabulous few days in Leeds visiting my MiL and we did manage to get to Scarborough on Sunday - the weather was beautiful - we all enjoyed some scrummy Fish n Chips, a ride on a steam train and on an open top bus all finished off with a well earned ice cream - yum yum!!

John and Jack thoroughly enjoyed the football at Old Trafford last night - even if it was a 0-0 draw and they didn't get home until after midnight!!!

Had a surprise visit from Lola Arizona and Ruby Mae when I got back home too - which was just what I needed after a 3 & 1/2 hour drive home :o(
Just need to muster some get up and go to empty the suitcase - maybe I'll feel more like it after a good night's sleep :o)

Hope to catch up with you this evening and tomorrow.

So very pretty, love the background and the sweet image too! Thanks for playing along with our 'No Flowers' challenge over at ABC Challenges!

Gail said...

This is adorable. I love the way you used green in the background and then gave him a touch of teal around the image. It sets him off much nicer than if you had used more of the same green. This is just so pretty and the snowflake is perfect in the corner.

Thanks for joining us at the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge and hope to see you again next month!
