Well this week has been very tiring and trying and we haven't even got to Friday yet - OH started his new job on Monday and got home first day at 7.45pm, it has improved since, he now gets home at 7pm, but leaves at 6.45am, so the alarm clock goes off at 6am, but we are awake before then, in case we oversleep and the trying bit has been H, as he is not used to seeing very little of his Daddy !!

With today's card i've used a stamp, that i don't think i've used before, but yet have had for 15 months, i guess i was never quite sure what to do with it, but i'm loving the simplicity of the Cards For Men sketch and i thought the papers that i've used,  name was apt as it's 'Seabreeze' !! and i've just finished it off with some buttons and twine and a simple sentiment too.
