brrr - its cold outside!

Good afternoon all - and where is the day going to! I can't believe its this time already - my youngest went off for her first visit to primary school this morning - she looks so grown up in her school uniform - I couldn't help but have a little tear in my eye! I hope its gone ok - she'll be at nursery this afternoon then I can pick her up later for her ballet lesson and we can find out how it went - fingers crossed it was good!

Lots to share with you today - first of all there's some new blog candy over at Vee Cassidy's blog - its a me to you pack and its there until the 25th July - I've put the libk on my sidebar so pop over and have yourself a look - she does some amazing things!

Secondly my card for the day - its a Christmas card - and I've finally got my memory box border die out of its packet! Yipee - I love it!!!

So the image is tatty teddy  (me to you) and the die is a memory box die - the sentiment says'let it snow' - I'm hoping we'll keep that for winter!!!
