happy day....

....but sadly not for me. Today was the last day of my brother, my sis-in-law and my two little nieces visit. They leave first thing tomorrow to travel back to New Zealand, three weeks have just whizzed by. My nieces are eleven and seven years old. When they left the UK the youngest was just a baby, my how they have grown and changed. We keep in touch with Skype and what not, but it's just not the same as a hug.

Anyhoo, here is this weeks Penny Black card. The challenge this week is 'anything goes'. A nice easy one. All the info' about the challenge can be found over on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog.

I have a lot of catching up to do to see all your wonderful creations. I plan to do that tomorrow night, I know it will cheer me up.
