Feeling the heat ...

Hello there ...
I hope you've had a good week and to all my American friends ... I hope you had a wonderful 4th July!
Finally we have wonderful weather here in the UK and I think the heat is getting to me ... I'm feeling really tired ...

DH and I are off to Cornwall for a few days at the end of next week so I've been making sure I get all my projects done and sending cards that need to be sent ... one of which is to the husband of a friend of mine ... Here's the card I made


Using those lovely MME Be Amazing papers again and I keep every scrap!
I hope he doesn't find it too ... young?


Well, it's in the post so too late to do anything about it ...


I've just picked up my new glasses today ... my first pair of Varifocals and I can tell they are going to need some getting used to ... But the optician has given me 28 days to try them and if I'm not happy I get my money back ... Can't be fairer than that ...

Before I go I want to show you a few handbags I came across yesterday in a local store ... I did Pin some on one of my Pinterest boards but take a look at these


How cute is that hedgehog?
And if you are a dog lover ... maybe ...


or ...


Yes they are really handbags or purses to my friends in the USA

Maybe you prefer owls 

... and you have to love this


They even had a handbag (purse) that was in the shape of the Eiffel Tower!! As soon as I can get a photo I will show you ...
In case you are interested Here's a link to their website 

Have yourselves a lovely weekend ...

Till soon
