Red, White and Blue

Now you can see by my card that one of the obvious things is the colour, Red White and Blue and thats the challenge over Penny Black Saturday Challenge to celebrate with our US friends Independence day.
And this week there are brilliant prizes from


The team is really jealous of these fab prizes.

 Not only that we have another prize from 
You can choose a stamp from their online shop.

Back to my card I used a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs called Boom I think. I've cut the start on the cricut. The middle mat is in fact just a frame, so it looks like a mat.
I would like to apologies for any mistakes I made while commenting yesterday, I was running out of time and I thought I would be clever and open several blogs at a time. Ended up calling people different names and saying how nice Tilda was and there wasn't one! I promise to blog one at a time, multi-tasking must diminish as you get older.
My best friend son past his degree and not only that he got a First too. He's had a rotten six months losing his Mum and both his Grandads at last something really positive for him.

Congratulations Christopher

There's always good news, bad news and today is no exception. Our Friend in Wales past away peaceful in her sleep yesterday. We knew this was coming but it still hurts, she leaves behind a daughter in her early twenties.
