Medals & Monarchs

Good Morning everyone, hope your having a good weekend and have a great bank holiday Monday tomorrow. Yesterday was a lovely day for me, after watching my youngest play football we went home had some lunch, then headed off to LIL OF THE VALLEY shop, they had a special promotion on with 10% off all stamps. So I bought six new stamps and one of them was a Birthday present for a special friend. I also met Dawny P, which was great, what a lovely lady she is and her work is beautiful. I had taken Bobby with me and she was really nice to him, they had a little conversation about crafting and his love of promarkers (Mummy's Promarkers). Thanks Dawny x

Now onto today's challenges:-

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Fab 'N' Funky - challenge # 119 - Celebrating Male-ness
