Annabelle and Tree at The Stamp Basket

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
I am so happy to be able to share my post with you today as we have had a bit of a mare with our internet this week.

We are changing over from Talk Talk to Sky and we had a letter confirming this would happen on Monday 14th July and would be a 'seamless' process.
However Talk Talk decided to disconnect us early and then tried to lay the blame with Sky.
Then they tried to say that there was a fault in the exchange and that an engineer would be dispatched to investigate the problem!!!
But yesterday I decided to just plug the new Sky router in and see what happened and to my surprise it all set up automatically - including internet access - happy smiley faces all round in the Simpson household :o)

So fingers crossed all stays connected and I don't get into trouble when they go to do the transfer tomorrow at 7:30pm!!!

Anyway the real reason I'm here is to share my usual Sunday morning inspiration for  

and for the next two weeks we are showcasing 


Janet has recently added some gorgeous new Craft Kits to the shop - see them here 
so for my share today I have used the fabulous 'Nordic Christmas Kit - Annabelle and Tree'

Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all your continued support - it really does mean a lot.
