Hello dear peeps

So another weekend over in a flash, I have spent most of it crafting though in the warm so can't really complain!  Need to keep everything crossed today as hubby will find out  if he has got a job he had an interview for last week and also has another interview today too.  He got made redundant last July and it really has been a struggle, there is just not much out there at all!!  We need something to come in PDQ I need new copics LOL!

Ok so my card today is another Marci this time she has a little heart balloon and is teamed up with  beautiful Carta Bella papers and OMG I am not good a cutting out, mind you smaller scissors might help as mine are rather large, will invest in a little pair I think!!  Here she is hope you likey............
