Gone Fishing

Well I see the weather has returned to type and it's raining again.  It was a lovely weekend and spring was most definitely in the air!

I was trying to do some tidying of craft stuff this afternoon but kinda got waylayed with my book, oops! Now the boys are home from school so am now in the round of snacks, homework and dinner as they have karate tonight at 6 and then Craig has Junior Section at 7.25! Mondays are busy in this house.

This is a card I made for a friend's birthday (which didn't start out to be a belated birthday card but ended up being one!).  I'm quite pleased with it - and have now added the Postage Stamp Nesties to my ever expanding wish list* - the one I used belongs to Cass and I think she might notice if I left the cabin with them ;)

* the list I have created to help Andy with birthday present shopping....
