Sweet Surrender


After an eventful weekend in Yorkshire - we are now home safe and sound, thank goodness.
1) the winds and rain - OH had to drive to Sunderland on Friday and as he drove back to Yorkshire there were loads of lorries jack knifed everywhere
2) OH had a flat tyre Saturday - had to call out the AA, who changed it to the spare, but it was a 'Space Saver' which means it would never have got us back to Sussex !!, so after some frantic phoning around he found a new one in York and off he went to get it sorted - so that was the best part of Saturday gone !!
3) Fortunately we came home yesterday on the A1M and not the M1, as Junctions 39 - 37 were closed and an Air Ambulance was involved.

Todays card started off with a sketch designed by my lovely friend Sandra over on Docrafts and the stamp is one i bought last Wednesday !!! - gee i'm such a sucker for PB's and bargains, it was half price, but to justify it i thought i could use it for snow and leaves as well, what do you think ?

Oh I do love your little hedgie, such a cutie. I think you got yourself a bargain at half price so no need to justify it to me :) Throwing leaves up in the air would be perfect too though.

Thank you very much for entering our Hearts challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and good luck with the prize draw
