Wow, what an amazing week :
1) I have finally won a Penny Black related challenge and i'm still so chuffed and pleased, i don't think i've come back to earth yet - i won it for Sunshine Hedge and i won it at Penny Black Circle for fancy folds.
2) We all went for a day out yesterday at Chessington World Of Adventure - 4 year old son and his best friend, her mum and brother, myself and my OH and we all had a great time
3) I got a new 'Sexy' (well that's what OH says !!) haircut - i usually go to the hairdressers and hate what they do with my hair, but i went to a new hairdressers and i just love what Dean did with it.

With todays card, i've been trying to find an excuse to use this fabby stamp, that i think is so versatile and these fabby boys papers, that i fell in love with after seeing them at The Glitter Pot.
