I have added Black Stickle glue to the centre of the flowers.

Thank you so, so, much for your visit I really appreciate you!
It has all been a bit hectic here. Claire my daughter has torn her Achilles Tendon, she did this at the beginning of July and after still complaining of pain. They MMR'd her leg and found she has broken her foot too! So back in plaster she goes. Bless her, she is amazing and coping really well with her two little ones, so we are kept very busy at the moment.

Picture of oweee!

Take care and enjoy the rest of the week!
