A Place in the Sun .......


Hi everyone, well I wish I could say I was off to a place in the sun but unfortunatley that is not the case. I do however have the next best thing which is a wonderful new stamp from Little Claire's called 'A Place in the Sun'.

Two Leaving Cards




Hi everyone, please see previous post for my blog candy winner. I just thought I would share some cards which I made for two ladies who are leaving my team at work as they are being made redundant. I work for a County Council so we are undergoing lots of cuts at the moment. I am also being issued with a redundancy notice in January but I'm hoping that funding will come through and it will be cancelled but I just don't know if that will be the case at the moment. At least I am finished work for Christmas so I'm not going to think about it for a few weeks.

The adorable image on my card is from the Digi stamp Boutique and I think is just perfect for this theme of card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
