Can you believe that, having stopped the inchy challenge blog, I've signed myself up with UK Stampers to do an on-going inchy swap! I just miss the little things! The swap is Continents and this week's was Africa - a tricky one as I had no African stamps so I amended a cat to look like a tiger! If only I'd taken a picture of them before I'd sent them off - but when I get them all back I'll upload them on here.
In the meantime here is a Valentines Tag I have done - also for UK Stampers for a competition they are running. I'm hoping I'll get back into doing some crafting if I join in. The stamp is one of Tim Holtz's - I love this family scene, especially as our family isn't complete with Emma at Uni and Jonathan having to work away - makes you treasure the moments that we are all together even more now the children are growing up.

The theme over at Sunday Stampers challenge is Sentiment - so I'm including my tag for that one also - Love does remind us that nothing else matters.

Tomorrow is the start of One World One Heart and I have been busy making my piece to be given away - Check again tomorrow to see what's on offer - especially if you like inchies!

My youngest Welsh Springer Spaniel Tegan is never far from me and this is her favourite place to be when I am on the computer - under the desk beside my feet. I often trip over her because she's so close behind me - its like having kids again!

My friend owns a wonderful meadow in the village in Hampshire where we live and last week we took a walk around it with the dogs - the sun was shining and it was almost spring - it gave us both such a lift to be watching these swans and listening to the river.

This is the final year for One World One Heart - the blog hopping event of the year - I did this a few years ago and even won something which was a bonus. I'm going to join in again this year - hopefully all that blog hopping will give me the motivation I need to get crafting again.

You'll find all the details here and the starting date is 30 Jan.
