It's Child's Play at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon.
It's been a busy morning - first a trip to the dentist - not happy because the side of one of my back teeth came away when I was eating a toffee - what an expensive sweetie that turned out to be.
Then I had my planned session at the gym - all going well there so far. Funny how 45 mins. seemed a long time when I first started and now it's over in a flash :o)

Anyway the real reason I guess you're here is to see my DT project for

Hiya Debs, hope your mouth isn't too sore. Thanks for your lovely comment - it's such a relief that I can now get her settled in a place with no stairs and that will be much safer for her.

Your card is perfect - bright, bold and beautiful - just the way I like them!

PS - no more toffees!!
