Good Morning Peeps,

Seems ages since I posted anything, but with the half term week my granddaughters were all off school and so we had a few days out and then I needed this last week to recover!!!!!!!! just joking.  If I am being really honest I haven't felt a bit like crafting for the past few weeks, but I am back today with my card for our new challenge at My Time to Craft where this week our challenge is:


My card is a CAS one which I made some time ago for a friend.

I scanned the train image and printed onto card, added ribbon and a sentiment .

Have a great weekend whatever you have planned and maybe take a look at the challenge blog and join in with us this week.
