Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends and hello to my latest new followers - it's an honour to see you here.
Hope you are having a great week so far.
Sorry I've not been about too much the last few days - I have been resting my back as much as possible and sitting isn't the best thing for it so I haven't been near my little crafty haven for ages :o(
I am thrilled to say that all the rest has done it the world of good and the muscle spasm has just about gone now - thank goodness :o)

So today I'm here to share my DT make for 

and this week's theme is 


The only difficulty had was what new stash to use!!!
In the end I settled for this uber cute Penny Black stamp and some new Design Papers from LOTV
