New Month! Cardabilites & White With ONe April!

A pinch and punch for another new month!
I hope you weren't fooled into believing anything this morning!! Yesterday I spend over 3 hours at the local hospital as my daughter had fallen down some stairs at school and got taken to emergency in an ambulance.. Thankfully after x-rays we were told no breaks, just a badly sprained ankle.. So rest, ice and elevation for a few days.. This morning I went in to wake her and said.. "c'mon are you going to school?' Her face lit up and she said "Really?' as she wanted to go.. and I said.. NAAA April fooling!! hehe..  naughty me!!

Well the new challenges are going up and the sketch over at CARDABILITIES #120 is another really good one. The sponsor this month is SAMI STAMPS
and they will be offering digital stamps to the random draw winner of this challenge which closes on April 13. Sami Stamps Store can be found HERE
