Brave Captain & Some Good News


Ok, i'm officially shattered after a very busy 4 days - on Thursday night Alan and i went to see 'The Three Phantoms' and it was brilliant, if you get a chance to see them do, Friday H had an inset day, so we went to Legoland, as H wanted to drive the 'Big Boy's Cars', Saturday was a garden party in the village in aid of a local hospice, and Sunday was bathroom shopping, as we are having a new bathroom fitted, whilst we are away, later on in the year.

Right now the Good News - I was e-mailed by Ready Teddy Go asked if i would like to join their fabby design team and i said 'Yes', so check it out from the 1st July, as this is when i go live - in the meantime if you want a giggle, the lovely Julie Ann has done a posting about the new DT members and there is a photo of me with Whisper ( i must confess, after the picture was taken, my camera stopped working :-)), for all those to check out, that have never met me.

For some reason i got it into my head i wanted to make a Pirate's card, so i found this little sweetie by 'Nellie Snellen' and teamed it up with some papers i won, but have never used, probably because i thought they were too Halloween - 'Phantom' by Pink Paislee, ribbon is from 'Crafty Ribbons' that i've been dying to use, buttons - 'The Ribbon Girls', Sentiment - 'All Year Round' by Paula Pascal.
