Bear and Flowers


Well i arrived back in the country yesterday at 4pm and look at me already uploading a card for a challenge !!! - gee what am i like !!!

We went on a cruise with 'Ocean Village' - taking in Dubrovnik (couldn't do, as 65 knot winds !!), Venice, Korcula (Croatia), Corfru and Katakolon (where the first Olympic Games were held) - we all had such a good time - including 3 year old, who loved the kids club on board.

Mind you whilst i was away - i was on the internet (see can't keep away) - but i won't tell you how much it cost me !!! and i found out that :

1) I had made Top 5 in the Allsorts Challenge for - 'Jingle Bells'
2) I had made Top 3 in the Winter Wonderland Challenge for - 'Jingle Bells'
3) I had won the lovely Helen's Blog Candy

and i was so over the moon and it put the icing on the cake for the holiday.

Right important things - on to the card, the challenges i'm entering are :
