Home Again!

Good morning all you lovely bloggers.  Well, I am finally home after my travels and trying to settle down to normality.  We had a fabulous time in Florida, the children enjoyed it so much it was just wonderful seeing them have so much fun.  Las Vegas was just as much fun as always - cocktails before breakfast, well it just has to be done.  I am pleased to say that I actually won as well - whoopee!! I am going to try and catch up with you all now over the next few days.  Today is my daughter Stacey's birthday so we are all going out to dinner tonight to celebrate.  I have been so busy I have not made her a card but I have so many in my stash that I am sure I will be able to find one for her.  This weekend Stacey and I are going down to London to see my grandson Harrison and my son and daughter in law.  I am so excited about seeing him it has been such a while.  The new baby is expected in less than 3 weeks, this 9 months seems to have flown by.

I have just found out that I was one of the lucky winners on the Penny Black Saturday challenge, with the problems I have had over the last 4 months I have not done much blogging and hardly entered any challenges so I was so pleased to have won!  Anyway, I do have a card that I made a while ago to share today, a CAS style, here it is:

I have used my new Spellbinders Exquisite Circles behind the image.  I can't remember who the stamp or sentiment are by - I will come back later when I find the details!

Well I am off to the gym in a while, I managed to put 4 lbs on which is not too bad considering I had 3 weeks in the US but I need to loose it before I go again lol!!

Thanks so much for looking, see you soon and take care xx
