We're celebrating our 1st birthday this fortnight over at Craft Your Days Away so we thought we'd have a lovely easy peasy challenge for ya......anything to do with


We have a number of prizes up for grabs for this special challenge - you'll have to check out the challenge blog HERE for details.....

I've used this super cute image from Karen's Doodles.  I've had him a while and been itching to colour him up - this was just THE perfect opportunity to bring him out!

I've used the "Lauderdale" pad from BG, my trusty nesties and card candy and this brilliant sentiment from CraftWork Cards.

I really hope you can join in the fun this time with us and can't wait to see what you come up with.

I've been working today and accidently left this post in draft - hence the late post!!  So that'll be me in the norty corner with me malibu and coke - sorry guys!!  I'm on wind down at the mo as only THREE more shifts to go then 2wks annual leave - OOHHHHHH YEEEAAHHHHHHH!!!.......

and the pupster, who now has a name - "Harley" comes home half way through - CAN'T WAIT!!!!!
