I remember the original 'V'! Do you remember the girl who had a baby with one of the Invaders? The baby looked human, but it stuck out a forked tongue like a snake! I shrieked at that point and my husband laughed at me!!!!!

Your card is lovely, as usual. The image is adorable, and your colours are great! That big flower is fab, too. Such a happy card!

luv, Mags x

Hi Coops

Feels like ages since I popped in .. .. sorry!! Life has been a bit hectic.

Visitors arriving today and we are out for lunch. Just having a quick blog hop whilst my hair dries and then I need to do a bit of cleaning up!!! LOL!!

They disappear straight after lunch to get back to Surrey so I can have a proper catch up with blogland then.

Your card is lovely. Great colour combo and I love your flower .. .. I will be able to make some like that soon .. .. tee hee!!

I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Love Jules xx
