Hello my fellow bloggers still not straight but now that we are living here it should get easier we still have to visit the house everyday due to hubby having Koi Carp which need feeding daily and can't be moved until a pond is built they go dormant during the colder months so that should free up some time, the cats have settled in nicely they won't be going out for some time and as winter isn't far away they probably won't go out until next year hopefully they will be use to the new surrounding by then....lol
l got to grips with my craft room yesterday and did lots of sorting out l didn't realise how much l'd got and came across these cuties
SWALK Rubber stamps most haven't been inked there are 14 in total so if your interested please leave your name and l'll draw 14 winners good luck all and thankyou for all your support during my absence
Many thanks Sandra H xx

Cocktails all round!

Hello and good evening all hope your day went well and you have great plans for the week ahead
l'm still not sorted at the new property but we decided it was too tiring going from property to property so we moved in on Saturday we still have stuff to move and hope to have it all shifted by the end of this week we moved the cats yesterday and that was a nightmare we have 3 but only 2 cat boxes so l made another box after making air holes and using tape to secure the box after take off the cat in the box got free when in transit the husband managed to get hold of her and she had the best seat in the car just loved the views it was a little scary though they are more like themselves today just have to keep them inside for a few weeks anyway l decided to show this card l made for my Neice's 40th b'day in September it was a fab night too and as the craft room is still in a mess l can't find the details that l used l do normally write them down as l'm making the card but l'm sure you'll forgive me and reconise lots of the products used
