I've Moved - please read!

Good morning everyone

To anyone who visits this blog or who follows me - for the time being I'm not updating it.  I'm so sorry to mess you about, but I've been really, really busy with work, family and  DT's commitments. 

So for the moment I'm concentrating on my other blog called Crafting Crackers - this is the link here. I updated this blog on a weekly basis so it regularly has all my cards and projects posted.

I hope to see you there.

Quick note to Sherry (if you come back) - thank you for leaving me a lovely message today and the answer to your question is YES I still make cards, so please visit me on my Crafting Crackers blog.

Big Hugs
