Tropical Tuesday

Morning all.

So after Monday's hideous weather today was, well, sunny... like summer should be..... Mmmmm. Am I in a parallel universe?!

There are loads of things I need to be doing tomorrow - I should maybe write myself a to do list. But that would be way too organised. Oh, hang on, maybe the me in a parallel universe would do that...She's probably got a tidy house too ;)

Anyway, to today's card. This is using another of the images that Cass got me when she was up on holiday. I just love this image. He reminds me of Craig with his Ted. Although Craig's Ted is much smaller than this one. We used to live in complete terror that he would lose him somewhere and that cos he was small he would be lost forever. Thankfullly it never happened and Teddy (although very battered but very loved) survives to this day.
