Fancy Pants

Hi,

H seems to be settling in alright - although he's very tired last night he slept for nearly 12 hours, gee my OH were like, ok what shall we do now !!! Weather here at the moment is fabby, which is good news as it allows me to get some washing dry. I'm off to Southampton for the weekend to see 'Top Hat' starring Tom Chambers (the guy who won Strictly with Camilla) at The Mayflower theatre with my friend Jane and i'm so looking forward to it.

Can you believe H got an invite for a party on Monday this week !!!, well unfortunately he can't make it, as we have other plans, but he still wanted to send Grace a card, so this is for her - I'm sure my Mum will appreciate the image more than her though !!! I've used my new Stampin Up scallop round the corner punch, but it caused me a bit of a headache to start with, as the dimensions didn't come with it, unlike Martha Stewart !! I also decide to have a little play with the swirl i have, but don't use very often - shame on me.

Sketch And Stash - where Challenge No: 70 is to pick a sketch of your choice from the catalogue - I chose Sketch No: 64
