Sheila your comment just made me laugh here - I'm exactly the same hun.
Each week sees me adding more images to my ever growing "stash" of them! Smiles.

Well done to the winners - all thoroughly deserved. :0)

Girls - such amazing creations again - all wonderful talent on the DT. :0)
I'm sorry I haven't been around to comment much - we have just finished moving house this past week, and I've been offline.

Loving the new images immensely. And cannot wait to go shopping in the morning. (HUGE Smiles there.)

I did get a couple of D'Arcy's coloured this past week, they just need making into cards. Hehehe.
Hugs to you all.
