Good morning.   Firstly thank you for all your lovely comments you left about my holiday photos.
We had a brilliant time and enjoyed every minute.  But have to say we were both glad to head for home on Tuesday.  Living out of suit cases isn't my idea of fun, we were staying in hotels and moving every other day nearly so you didn't have a chance to unpack.   Back to normality again, and of course it was washing and ironing for me.
Thought I would join in with Erika ( snappycrafts) showing an oldie. It doesn't have to be a card.
I have choosen to show one of my puppy gifts.  Have made a good few of these since I started back in 2009.  Lots of people don't have children but have a puppy so it's a a gift for their new baby!!.,

A box with a small dog blanket round it tied with a lead, inside a towel, toys, treats, poo bags and a brush.    Very simple to put together.

That's it for today, it's back to doing some more ironing for me.  Enjoy your day and the weekend, it's a pity that they are saying it's going to get cooler.  Have say I perfer the temperatures it has been since we got home, we were have it 20-32c at the end of our holiday, which was just a bit to hot for me.
