Its been a while.........................

Hey all

Well  5 weeks since my last post, I had so many things going on that I had to have a bit of a break, I stepped down from all my DT's to concentrate on things at home.  I was starting to get worried as I must confess to a distinct lack of interest in making cards however I felt 'in the mood' today so that is a good sign I think, I hope!!

So Jamie is now at Chester Uni, its so far away and I miss him already ( its only been a week LOl) although my food bill this week halved!!   I hope he has a totally awesome time though and I am so proud of him for getting his place there.
Anyway I hope you are all keeping well, hopefully I will get some blog hopping in later today, come and see what you have been up to!! 
So what got the mojo fired up, a Saturated Canary stamp....................Isabella!  I popped up to Oyster stamps with my crafty friend Lisa and just had to have this one!!!!
