Back in the craft room.....




Our grandchildren were delivered home safe and sound yesterday afternoon....we've had a great week with them and have done things everyday.  One of the places we did visit was the Hawk Conservatory, Andover, just off the A303...what a fabulous place and the bird displays were amazing, such a great day out..

Just wanted to use my Cheery Lynne Mexican Tile die that has sat on my desks for a weeks unused......I also found this little Kingfisher image from one of Jane Netley Mayhew's CD....I've had to cut him down quite a bit to fit in the centre of the die.  

I hope to have a quick look around blog land later to see what you've all been up to...
