Black, White and A Splash of Colour at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are well and those not I wish well soon.

I'm happy to report that Jack's room is finished - just need to pick up the new roller blind and curtains but I think John will do that on his way back from Yoga this morning and then it will be my job to hang them :o)

So that's one job ticked off the list - another job already done and ticked off the list this morning was to defrost and clean the small freezer in the garage - ready to be refilled when the shopping arrives :o)

But before that happens I would like to share my DT make for the new challenge over at
