my last post from home.......

Before I go away.......I have had the added stress this week of changing broadband providers, never straight forward lol........... anyway, all seems to be working after hundreds of calls for help to Orange.

I am going to the other side of the world to visit Nephew in New Zeland who is getting married on the 22nd December and then to Darwin Aus. to see Son and family, only made possible because of Mum's demise. So it is bitter sweet.

I have another card with the fab Stella, again, I can see my mistakes when it is too late!!! (my picture is not quite straight) OOOooppppppssssss

DC Tea House papers
Stella from Bugaboo
Coloured with promarkers3D gloss on cherries and glass
Die-namics springtime die
Punched flower, gems, glitter and sentiment from stash

I am entering the following Challenges;

Sketch N Stash ---------- 102 by Sue (old doily die and sentiment)

Thank you for your visit and I will wish you a very happy Christmas, peace, happiness, good health and good luck in the coming year
