Woo freakin hoo!

Hello lovely people,

Big ooooops...I got so overwhelmed with Christmas and New Year that I completely forgot my DT post for our last challenge of 2015 at As You Like It!

So, I guess my New Year's resolution would have to be to get more organised!
Which actually leads me onto the other reason I have been a little busy over the last few days because I finally got started on my big craft room redecoration project.
There will be photos to come!

While I get on with organising all my crafty stash into my new storage units, here's our new challenge at As You Like It and we have made it super easy for you all because it's...


Our sponsor this time is My Mum's Craft Shop

I have to admit that I often don't make a card for Dr. Hubby's birthday as he is really not fussed...which is why this card is perfect for him!

Handmade birthday card featuring party grumpling

This little bear has a load of other equally grumpy friends in the set and I love them all so prepare to see more (a LOT more) of these chaps!
