It's oh so miserable and dull and taking photos is a nightmare Sam. But clear enough to see this is a real beauty.

Enjoy your date, not one for me, not a JB fan at all, but some of the boys and other halves say it's fabulooouuus darling as Craig would say.

Lovely cards Sam...made me chuckle...a mouse riding a clockwork mouse :0) My lads have seen Spectre and were a bit disappointed, said it wasn't as good as Skyfall but what do they know??!! xx

I just LOVE that cute stamp. My daughter had a little ride on Mousy when she was little, so I had a total flash back to her baby days seeing this. Thanks for that sweet trip down memory lane. I love the two cards, the embossing and gorgeous papers. Both utterly fabulous. Thanks so much for joining in with our 'Diecuts & Punches' challenge at Fab 'n' Funky. We're so glad you did. Looking forward to seeing your fabulous talent in the lineup again soon. Hugs, Wends x Fab 'n' Funky DT

Hi Sam

What a great, fun card. I haven't seen that image before .. .. one to add to my list as it has lots of potential uses!!

You will love Spectre! Both the film and Sam Smith's fabulous singing at the beginning! We went Saturday afternoon with our youngest. I have to be honest and say that I didn't really want to go, but the rule was laid down that if we didn't all go then no-one goes!! So I went, and enjoyed every second!! So pleased I was blackmailed into going! LOL!!!

Enjoy your date night.

Love Jules xx
