Sugar anyone?

Good evening beautiful people.

Everyone enjoying their weekend?  I'm having a bit of a 'mare.  My boiler's just broken and water is gushing out all over the kitchen.  British Gas are on their way... I really hope they can fix it, especially as we're expecting temperatures down to -12 tonight.  Looks like I'll be getting a couple of sacks of coal in.

Anyhoo, on with the show...

My card this weekend is for my first Sugar Bowl challenge.  I found these stamps at the same time as Lili of the Valley and they are just so fab.  So when I received a surprise cheque in the post this week I rushed over to Funkykits and bought myself five new stamps.  You may have guessed that I'm a bit of a shopaholic.  I'll never be rich, but I'll have plenty of stuff to play with in my craft room, which makes me a very happy girl!!
