It's all over for another year!

So, how was your Christmas? Ours was good, the boys got everything they wanted and more besides. Most of the toys have finally been put upstairs. We've sorted a huge (and I mean huge) pile of kiddie books to take to the local hospital for the children's ward later in the week. Thomas has taken a bit if a dip today, his temperature is up again and he says his ear hurts so we may be heading back to the doctors tomorrow :-(

I had a play last night with a gorgeous stamp I bought weeks ago and didn't get the chance to ink up. I think she is so pretty. The butterfly die is also new, again something I bought a while ago and not used, oh dear I am soooo naughty ;-) I love this particular butterfly and can see it featuring on lots of my cards from now on...
