Pollycraft Linky Party

Good Evening folks, how has your day been? good, I hope. We had rain here today, I'm sure the plants were ready for it though after the hot spell.

I'm sure you all know that Paula over at Pollycraft has decided to close her online store as she is going to be very busy soon with her new baby.  I have loads of Pollycraft digi's,  I love them! they are all so cute & an absolute joy to colour.  I hope that one day Paula might just re-open her shop.

I'm joining in with the Linky Party over at Pollycraft and have a card to show you I made in April last year, (see this post)  using Swings & Slides 2 - I'm not tired

There is still the chance before the store closes on the 8th June to pick up some Pollycraft images, as Paula has generously created some amazing bundles for us all. Thank You Paula and good luck with the baby.

I'm off for a catch up, before bed.

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #106 Maggie's Sketch

Good Morning all, hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend. I was so pleased that Ashleigh & Pudsey won BGT last night, what an adorable and clever dog he is and Ashleigh was a little star to have trained him to do all those fab tricks. Keep trying to get my cats to do as they're told but anyone with moggies know they just do as they please and totally rule the roost. My daughter rung this morning and told me one of her cats had pinched her tube of coldsore cream off her bedside table in the night and it has dissapeared off the face of the earth. Ooh! they are so naughty.

Anyhoo! it's time for another sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and our Maggie has designed a wonderful one again for us all to play with.
