Brave Captain

Hi,

I decided to treat myself this week as the nights are getting darker and because i'm struggling to see colours, so i bought a 'Daylight Lamp' from Amazon, but the seller was a very worthy cause 'RNIB' it cost £35 (with free delivery) and here is the link, if anyone is interested : http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B002UPDK7S/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&qid=1316770810&sr=8-6&condition=new - sorry about that it should work now.

Todays card is shock horror not a PB - i don't know what seems to be happening lately, this is my 3rd card on the trot, where i've used a different companies image !!! I  purchased this little fella from 'Bunny Zoes Craft' with my winnings and i think he is just right for 5 year old boys - well H's friends anyway !!! I have been dying to use these super DCWV papers and fabby buttons (i have 2 pkts of them) for a while.
