Much Gifted !


I must confess that although the lovely warm weather has been nice, i'm now glad that it's going to cool down, as H has been beside himself, i'm so glad we went to the theatre yesterday (which although not my cup of tea, H loved) and when we got to Chloe's house, her mum got the paddling pool out and the kids had so much fun.

The stamp i've used today is the very first PB i ever bought, and it's so right for a 'Down On The Farm' theme,  the colours are unusual for me, as i usually colour it in, in more softer girly colours.  I've used a paper pad that i've never opened, only stroked !!, i loved the zigzag paper so much, as it allowed me to use my trusty punch, that is so fabby for male cards.
