Joyful Noise


Firstly we had a fabby hols and if you scroll down, i've included a couple of piccys too. OMG have i really been back in the UK for 2 weeks and this is the 1st card i'm posting - gee where does the time go - H has settled nicely into his new school and skips and smiles as he goes in every morning - yipee, it's such a weight off our shoulders.

Today's card is using a stamp, that i think i bought in a sale - i so love the fact Mo Manning has agreed to let PB have some of her designs, the papers are - 'Midnight Frost' by Bo Bunny, Sentiment - LOTV, Trees are - Marianne D.
