Been a Bad Blogger...

Hiya Crafters,
Just popped by to apologise for being a bad blogger lately, I've not had much time for commenting as we have our lovely Daughter coming over from America in less than two weeks with her hubby & our two Grandsons so I've been excitedly getting the house ready and planning everything else. I'm so excited as we haven't seen them for nearly two years so I know it'll be a tearful reunion.
I've also been trying to make all my DT cards ready to schedule as I know once they are here I won't have time for the computer at all, I want to take my Grandsons out, we have a lot of catching up to do :o)
I've popped a card on here too just a quickie I made a while back, hope you like it. 

I will get around to visiting your blogs as soon as I get a bit of time to myself.
Take good care of yourselves
