Nature Walk Shutter Card

Happy Tuesday!
I am very busy today doing last minute washing, ironing and shopping
ready for our Baltic Cruise on Thursday. I am so excited!!!
So this will be the last posting for a couple of weeks!
A few weeks ago I had a lovely afternoon just playing with stamps sets

Enjoy the next couple of weeks - I know I will!
