Alcohol Markers

I've missed these faces!

YAY! Reunited with our gorgeous daughter and her boyfriend after 3 months apart.  They have been having the time of their lives volunteering with a group called Soft Power Education in Uganda.  We've followed their blog and chatted on Skype but it's just not the same as having a hug!  I plan to make the most of  my time with them over the next 2 weeks we have together. london Here's those little journal box and travel log stamps again from the Wanderful WOTG kit.  I added the cute heart cluster from t…

Colouring in is so much fun!

When it's a cat!

This clever idea is one shared by a fellow consultant, Doris Taylor, at a recent consultant crop day.  Having a tendency to crazy cat lady behaviours myself, I couldn't resist making up a couple for this card.  I plan to send it to a lady I have recently met - I know we are going to become firm friends.
