Morning readers,

Today sees my second make as a member of the Design Team over at the Love To Craft Challenge Blog - I'm delighted to be part of this challenge blog. I hope some of my readers will pop along and enter, it's an ANYTHING GOES challenge, runs monthly which starts on the 1st of each month.

Here's my  make for the month of October .... I recently acquired this fab set of stamps and this is the second card made from the set, I'm just betting it won't be the last either!
