Morning Tuesday

Had a busy day yesterday, went up to Kanban in Yorkshire.
I normally go with 2 friends but 1 has been taken into hospital. Our thoughts were with her as we had to fill a box for her to. (it wasn't hard to do )
They had some fabulous papers and card in. And there was some other bargins to have as well.
20 sheets of die cut crimo toppers for only £3. Every day die cut toppers for 40p a sheet but if you bought 10 then it worked out at 30p sheet.
Can't wait to have a play.
I was only back a while then we went to vist our friend in Hospital, looking a little better than she was, wishing her a speedy recovery.
