Berry, Berry Christmas


This is a quick posting, as i need to do domestic duties today at some point !!! 4 year old son is loving his summer holidays so far - on Monday was Winkworth Arboretum, yesterday was Horsham Park, as there was a free Punch and Judy show on and my friend and her son joined us and the boys went on their scooters, which they thought was great fun, tomorrow is a farm activity centre, that we have membership for.

The stamp i've used today, is one that took me a while to get hold of, but i wanted as it's such a cutie and i've teamed it with some fabby 'Basic Grey' papers and fibres to match, that again are difficult to get hold of  'Figgy'. I've also used my fabby Martha Stewart punch 'Holly'.
