Hello my lovelies I'm running late today cus the sky engineer has been........yep I complained its not sunny enough so he came to fix it lol. No my sky tv lol.
Well I'm back to doing my DT work & my 1st day is for Crafts & Me.
Now to be honest when I started colouring the other day it just wasnt happening after having all that time off. So I picked out a few of my favourite stamps to help get the juices flowing & it did actually start to strange is that!!!
So here is my 1st of those stamps............yeah you know its a Crafts & Me stamp.......they are my FAVE!!
This is the beautiful 'Hiding' by Molly Harrison, I sooooo love her work, this stamp is exclusive to
