I hope you are all well.
I managed to make this card yesterday, i do have another on my little table ready to assemble too once i find my lost pricking mat as i wanted to faux stitch.
I had a lazy day really yesterday, i made a scrummy slimming world recipe for tea....... lemon chicken couscous which was so yum that hubby took the leftovers with him to finish at work last night.
