I started this hours ago... Honest.

Well, here we are at Monday again - I know, I'm kinda pushing it here... I did mean to get this done earlier but the evening has whooshed by.

We had a lovely day out on Saturday at the zoo with the Sweeties. Once I've sorted the photos I'll come back and share some.  It was great to catch up with Fi again and to finally meet Abi and Tracey (and all relevant "small" people). 

Having stayed up to watch the entire opening ceremony of the Olympics and then walked round the zoo all day on Saturday the boys and I were very tired on Saturday evening so I was glad we were staying at Andy's brother's for a second night as I didn't fancy the drive back to Glasgow!

On to today's card. This is my lovely friend Sandra's birthday card. I have looked at Tiddly Inks images for ages and loved them so finally took the plunge and got some, so lots more to share now that I finally have ink for the printer :)
