Click your heels.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
It is my day off today so first thing is to go and have the old eyebrows trimmed whilst Hubby is at the doctors having an asthma checkup and getting the same new inhaler as me.
We then need to go and do a little shopping to make sure our laddo has everything he needs for his week at Standon Bowers.

Hey Girl, I been meaning to stop by..I just been (as my hubby has been calling me lately) "a busy bee". Anyway, totally love this card! You're so dog gone talented missy!! I always know where to go for inspiration ;)

Just a FYI: Have you heard about "pocket letters'? You've got to check it out, if you haven't. I can already see what you'd create. You can look at some I've done on my blog, or type in pocket letters on youtube, or go to the PLP site at

I warn you. . . "IT'S TONS OF FUN"
