Wise old Winter

Hello...
Have you ever done anything silly....well I did on Tuesday....Ive been making some wreaths and using a hot glue gun....which i used for some years now...and needed to put in a new stick as I did the glue came out the other end and when on my hand....boy was it hot!! then (this is the silly part) to cool it down I put it up to my mouth and got it stuck to my upper lip....a quick dash in to the bathroom and lots of cold water...I been left with a very sore lip...which is looking not to bad now....thank goodness for a bit of lippy!!....lesson learnt....I wont be doing that again....


Todays card are for the wildlife centre  to sell and rise some funds....


Hunkydory topper kit which was one of the sets sent to me by Ashleigh....so far ive made two but with some card and dies from my stash ive got two more to make...
