It's the National!!!!


Happy Grand National Day!!!
Anyone having a flutter? Grand National Saturday was always a major event when I was young. It was an all dayer, with an old army blanket to block out the light and plates of pre-prepared food and tea-making equipment all ensconced in the living room.
The phone went off the hook, the door wasn't answered and it was heaven!
Ahhhh, happy days!
Not like yesterday when I killed me Cuttlebug!!!
I did salvage a piece of card that I was testing the CB with. It only cut one side.....but the side it did cut was quite appealing, so I've used it to mark the passing of my friendly CB. I've also entered it into the PTW as a fitting memorial. lol
Hope you like it. ;)
