New Challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie

Morning All

What beautiful weather we have been having, the sun makes the day so much brighter and lifts my spirit.  We had a lovely day out on Saturday going to pick up my greeting card stand, went to Ikea but honestly don't see what there is to rave about not that impressed really but at least I can now say that I have been.

We had lunch in a lovely country pub as we came back avoiding the motorway as the traffic on the M4 to M5 had massive tailbacks, finally arriving home around 6pm.

I am doing another craft fair at Endsleigh Garden Centre again this weekend and already have an order for two large spiral candles which is good news as that means I have already made the price of my table.

It was my turn at OBAG to choose the theme for this fortnight's challenge and I have chosen Baby and the prize for the lucky winner is below

I chose the theme baby as I wanted to use my Mo Manning digi stamp that I have had for ages and never used and it is so cute.

Am off out this morning to the Scrap Shop in Plymouth, you have to be a member to use this shop and my friend Jane is taking me, they sell all kinds of craft stuff amongst other bits and bobs and I need some webbing to make handles for my bags which again I have an order for and need to get finished by next Monday but can do that over the next few days.  

Bye for now will catch up with you all soon, I know I keep saying this but my back is a bit easier and my Fibromyalgia is now settling down again so hey can sit at the computer.

Love Alison
