Phew! - It's a warm one!

Too hot today to make cards! I have done my house work and now there is only one thing left to do and that is go make a bacardi and coke and sit in the garden! The chances of me making a card that isn't wonky after that is pretty slim so I will leave the card making for today lol!X
