New Beginnings

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Christine's turn to choose the theme and she chose "New Beginnings" - Use something to do with New Baby, New Job, New Home etc.............. As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use, as my Hubby has just been promoted at work (thats a new beginning isn't it), it had to be OR1048 Attack Of The Caffeine Crash.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Now for the prizes:-

One Lucky Winner will receive a fab $25 Electronic Gift Certificate

good for shopping at HMD's online store.
