Sweet Thing

Hi there! I am finally back in my craft room after enjoying some beautiful warm weather and spending time at the beach...it was a much needed break and I love the ocean.....it seems to soothe the soul:)

A few challenges inspired me to make a card this week and I have used a cute little stamp from Penny Black - one that I think I've had forever. It feels great to be making cards again!

Thanks so much for your visit today xx
