Happy mail !!

Evening fellow bloggers, what a day it has been, a rare mid week day off for me so me and hubby spent it shopping, and then my first ever Jones crafts DT parcel arrived and wow did I love opening that box, here's what was inside.......

Every graphic 45 lovers dream ! A full set of the new release precious memories and the deluxe edition of once upon a springtime...... But most of all a graphic 45 badge - I've been after one of these for ages lol. Think I will ditch my work name badge tomorrow and wear that haha. A huge thanks to Jones and Darren Saxton for giving me the DT position working with g45. I love that box of goodies. So tomorrow evening I plan on sitting in my craft room and creating with the new goodies. 
I do have a quick card to show you using g45 raining cats and dogs.

I just adore that blue paper and those little resin flowers were from my amazing friend Maria.
Well hope you are all well and having a good week. 
Take care xx
