Childhood Memories...

Good morning sweet stampers, I hope the weather is too bad wherever you's a bit rainy here!! Well this is the last weekend in my office....we have a big office move on Monday to a nice new building so hopefully all my stuff has been packed away and I will find it on Monday....I had to take my calculator, notepad and headset home with me on Thursday as I need them today and I would never manage without them.

The challenge this week over at Sweet Stampin is " childhood memories". When I saw this cute little Gorjuss Girl...I had to have her as reminded me of when I was younger...very much younger and my big, transparent bubble brolly. I also had a matching transparent raincoat...honest they were the fashion in those days although these big brollys are back in fashion. Holly has a few of these but she doesn't really like them cos they are too big but probably when I bought them I was thinking of how much I loved mine when I was little.

This week's sponsor Tiffany Doodles.

Tiffany Doodles

Who are offering one lucky winner 5 digis.


the monthly sponsor this month is Joanna Sheen.

....and one lucky winner will win £10 gift certificate to spend in their store.

So...for card I used papers from October Afternoon - Love Letters, the stamp is from Personal Impressions (please note although this is a Gorjuss Girl, it's not by Sugar Nellie)which I coloured with copics.

don't forget you still have time to enter the Sweet Stampin DT Call.
