Im back

Good morning, hope that everyone is well and warm. So popping in today with my latest DT for fantastic tuesday. The theme for this week was Male. So I dug out some g45 good old sport paper and wonderful hobby house topper and hey presto and card I'm actually reasonably happy with. Male cards are so hard lol.

Let me know what you think......
So we got back from our few days away and we enjoyed every minute. Saw some wonderful family and friends. Then before we came home hubby treated me to that early birthday pressie at Abbey house (although its not until early December lol)
Where the food was amazing !

And the Christmas decorations were fabulous and so different from when we had the wedding there in June ! Our florist who is amazing gets married there this Saturday ! I will be thinking of her.

As usual we did not want to leave. But all good things come an end and its back to work Wednesday ready for the madness of the Christmas rush ! Only 1 decent break of a few days before Christmas. The rest will be an odd day scattered here and there. But cant complain as I have a decent job. And on the case of the slipped disc it has got a bit better so fingers crossed. Well thats enough of me rabbiting on I must get to bed its past midnight. Thanks for stopping by and a big hello to my new followers.
Hugs Elaine xx
