How adorable is this


As well as having our laptop upgraded we have also been away for a holiday but I never like to advertise that on my blog as it is linked to Facebook and I am a cautious person when it comes to telling people I am away from home. We should have arrived home yesterday afternoon/evening and I am hoping we are getting our laptop back today. We spent 3 nights in Harrogate and went to see our favourite singer Midge Ure in concert on the Wednesday evening. We also went to visit the Lili of the Valley shop, which was such a lovely shop with loads of samples to inspire. Then we went up to Cumbria for 2 nights. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments whilst we have been away. I did manage a few in return on the iPad, but nowhere near as many as usual.

I normally enter every Sugar Bowl challenge, usually more than once as you know I love my SN stamps. For the first time for years I won it in April and this is one of the four stamps I chose. Isn't it adorable.

Medium - Copics
Papers - Docraft Kraft Notes
Punch - MS heart border
Velvet ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Die - MB Precious Hearts
Sentiment - Mag freebie
Other - white pearl heart coloured with a Copic, stickles, spider's web stuff.

What a gorgeous card and such sweet little characters. I love Midge Ure, one of my favourite songs ever is Vienna, just simply for his wonderful voice :o)
