My surrogate parents Anne & Barry are looking after him and as you can see they have a motor home and go all over the UK in it. This is Sirs seat when he is away!!!!

Well its been a while since I entered a challenge. This weeks challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge is Lots of Dots.

Feeling happier today!

Well I am just back after a visit to the craft shop. The staff were lovely and very helpful. I am now booked into their Promarker Saturday club and also Card Making club. So i had to buy 6 Promarkers to start off my collection. I lay the blame entirely at my former next door neighbour but a great friend who showed me her images which she had coloured using them. I can not wait til my first class which is on the 3rd June.
I am off now to have a little play with those new pens!!!!!!

Enjoy the sunshine
