Game Boy

Hello peeps, hope you are all well in Blogland.  Well, that is us back to the same old weather, rain, rain and more rain.  Shouldn't be surprised since the 'T in the Park' festival opens tomorrow and with it only being 20 minutes away we get the same rain showers.  Not been to TITP for a few years, as the saying goes 'seen it, done it, worn the T shirt' and to be honest I like my home comforts now.  There was nothing worst than longing for a shower and your soft bed is calling your name when you could see your own house from the top of the big wheel and you are stuck knee deep in mud with the same clothes on (nearly) for three days... phew! ... my jeans and trainers went straight in the bucket and that was that, no more and don't get me started on the port-a-loo's....

Phew, rant over, back to the card.  The image is from Lili of the Valley, it is one of their die cut squares, brilliant when your colouring-in head is in another room.  Design paper is from K & Co (the Hopscotch paper pack I think)  Fabric covered brads, spotty ribbon and charm are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-
