Ooohh Baby Baby!

Well, don't know what happened to the weather here in Hull but it's dark early again tonight! Hope it doesn't mean more rain! Even the rain won't spoil my mood today though, if you remember I mentioned the Rugby just a few weeks ago, well they made it to the final at Wembley, it's this Saturday and I've won two tickets which arrived today so me and hubby are going!! Really looking forward to it, going by coach so will be nice and relaxing too.

I was lovely and relaxed yesterday all ready to finish my card off (the one on this post) when my Big Shot decided to play up, the image slipped and my giraffe lost his ears, so I'm a wee bit later today as I had to print and then re cut and colour. Think it was worth it though, its worked out quite well. It's for the challenge over at
The challenge this time is number 22 - No Printed Paper.  We are sponsored by the fabulous
