Henry - Crafting at the Weekend Challenge 3

Good morning crafters.  Phew it has been a busy month, both at work and at home.  Not long got back from a gorgeously relaxing weekend in Derbyshire.  Such beautiful scenery and lovely walks.  We did so well with the weather too.

Then back to work and major catch up mode.  Thank god I only work 3 days.

Then yesterday was Friday, my weekend starts and a crafting afternoon with my chums on Skype having a catch up and a bit of a giggle.

Today starts a new challenge over at Crafting at the Weekend.  The challenge is 'Anything Goes'.
