Spots and/or Stripes

Good evening my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week has got off to a good start.

I had a great day out on Saturday at the Great British Craft Festival with my beautiful friend Claire - it was so good to see you lovely lady and it was also great to see our lovely Dawny :o)

The rest of my time since I last posted has been spent working on things for Jamie and Rowena's Wedding - now just over 6 weeks to go!!!!

I am also pleased to report that my new fitness regime is going well - not ready to run a marathon yet - but so far so good!!!  Thank you for all your best wishes and concerns about my dodgy ankle - I bought a strap and so far no problems - phew!!!

So today we have a new challenge for you over 

and this week the theme is 


As our sponsor is the lovely Jill from 

I thought I would use some scummy Hobby House goodies to make my DT card 

Card Ingredients:

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Before I go I thought you might like to see the goodies I bought at the GBCF - can't wait to have a good crafty playtime with this little lot :o)

Thanks for popping by to see me today.
I'm off to have a wee catch up with what you have been up to.
