I've photos of my craft-y day out on Wednesday ... but, first, I'd like to share today's make with you - you will see that it even uses new stash! How gratifying is it to break the seal on new stash? AND within 24 hours too -yee haa!

- 13½cm square white card panels (2, to include insert)

|The Pink Tulip|
|Kathy on a mission, sometimes I wonder whether I mistake days like this for a ....|
|The workshop facilities at the Pink Tulip|
We sat down over a cuppa, compared stash hauls and then, wouldn't you know it?
we simply HAD to go round again!

|Our pit stop for lunch - no we DIDN'T drink all those bottles!|
Though the mirror in the ladies did proclaim
"Of COURSE size matters ... who's gonna want a SMALL glass of wine"????
And now for the Friday Funny, courtesy of Lilian - thanks mate, it set me thinking about Minions - hence the animation below it
|This is just meant to be funny and is not intended to offend|
|Horfield common and the balloons|
|Who doesn't love a minion?|
I was tooling around on the internet and came across this graphic, now I LOVE minions (esp BOB) so simply had to include this animation
