Christmas Peek - A - Bear


Wow, i turned on my computer yesterday to find so many lovely people had left me comments for my first CAS card, thank you so much, it's very much appreciated.

Well i think i've finally caught up with the washing (well i must confess i did do 2 loads on the ship, well you have to really, when you have a 4 year old) and we came back to reality with a bump yesterday !!, firstly 4 year old locked himself in the bathroom at 8.20am - so OH had to take the door handles off, all before he took son to pre-school and went to work himself, then last night was a meeting to get the pack, so son can go to school in September, i didn't go, as we couldn't get a babysitter - but OH said he got some strange looks from people, as they thought he was a single parent !!!

The stamp i've used for todays card i treated myself too at Christmas from the lovely Dick at PB Stamps ( gee for a PB lover like me, his website is seriously dangerous !!!) and it's one of the very early stamps that PB produced as it's number is : 321F. I decided i would also get my Tim Holtz distressing tool and ink pad out too, as the papers have a faded look to them and i thought it would add to it.
