Good Morning,

I hope everyone in the UK has been enjoying this week of gorgeous weather which is set to continue for the weekend.  I must admit I have been very lazy this week, have done very little crafting and even less housework (unless absolutely necessary) and have spent my time in the garden and relaxing and reading in the sunshine.  

We have a new challenge for you this week at My Time to Craft:


For my card I have used "Alice in Wonderland"

The digi image is from the internet, papers are Bo Bunny, ticket Tim Holtz and I added three buttons.
