Wishing ........


Firstly i would like to apologise for my lack of comments in the last week !!! only from last Wednesday till Sunday night i was in Yorkshire - fortunately we left then, as there was already 3 inches of snow from Saturday, but when we rung OH's dad he said he had another 3 fell Sunday night and 5 more last night making a total of 11 inches !!! (thinking of all those poor people up and down the country cut off by the snow at the moment and i hope you are keeping warm) anyway the main reason for going up to Yorkshire, was that we went to see 'Peter Kay' on thursday night at Sheffield Arena and he was absolutely SUPERB, if you haven't seen him and you get a chance go.

Also since Saturday lunch time i've been struggling with griping stomach pains and my OH got it Sunday - apparently we both have something called 'Stomach Flu' !!! and it's gripping now, while i'm typing this, so please excuse me, if i only stay long enough to upload my card.

I've gone for Monochromatic on todays card and to start with i wasn't sure until i remembered this cute little image and now i think it's good, it also gave me a chance to play with my new MS Snowflake punches !!!
