Happy Halloween


Just a little post to wish all my blogging buddies a Happy Halloween and to share a picture of my little witch!


Fishing Alf ............


Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. Me and my little girl Grace have both been crafting today. I brought Grace a little set of stamps and she was enjoying herself so much she did not want to stop for dinner! It was lovely to see her enjoying herself even if everything did get covered in red ink!

Anyway onto today's card, this is 'Fishing Alf' from the Digi Stamp Boutique. I think he is such a great image for a male that likes fishing and in my family there are quite a few!

Paper Sundaes - For the boys
Cards for Men - Anything Goes
The Stamp Man - Cards for Men
