I came home to a brand new bathroom which looks amazing and chuffed to bits. Lots of cuddles off Rick and my fur baby Fluffy, I missed them so much.

I am all refreshed and over my jet lag now too so raring to go.
This weekend we are hoping to pick up our new addition to the family and I can't wait.

2. Stamped the sentiment with Archival ink onto base card.
3. Stamped the dandelion and dragonfly with Versamark then embossed with Stampendous white embossing powder on black card which was cut out using SB Grande Oval die.
4. Using white Uniball I drew the few stitching around the edge of the oval then added white dots around the image.
