Dandelion Clock…




Morning everyone, it’s Friday again and a bank holiday here in the UK so we have a nice long weekend to look forward to

I thought we’d have a break from Christmas today and I have a beautiful card to share by Gretha


Dandelion Clock - Gretha

Gretha used the Dandelion Clock stamp, this is one of our older images but still a very popular one…   isn’t she pretty!


That’s it for this week folks, I’ll be here every day over the bank holiday so make sure you stop by. I think we’ll have a bigger draw over the weekend instead of a small daily prize so there will be one of our paper pads for 2 lucky winners. Make sure you leave feedback each day and I’ll draw a couple of winners on Tuesday from all the comments left over the next few days

Our winner from Wednesday is Sari, well done Sari please email with your address


See you tomorrow, have a good day
