June Colour Combo Blog Hop

welcome to the June Colour Combo blog hop

If you have arrived from Stephanie, you are in the right place!!!. If you are here and didn't come from the previous blog, I am listing the hops below my post so you can start back at the beginning if you wish.

I hope you like the layout I've done of myself and my friend Joanne who I have known all my life and we grew up as neighbours, went to school together and continued our friendship all these years (nearly 37). She was my maid of honour on my wedding and I was her chief bridesmaid at hers too. She is married to Chris and AJ and I have the previledge of being honorary Aunty and Uncle to Oliver and Grace.

This blog hop I am also offering a Giveaway to those who comment on my blog. Please leave a comment and I will pick One winner next Friday. The Giveaway is a kit of your choice from here. The Make and Create Shop is a fantastic place for home made embellishments by Anna, and I have purchased a few over the last few months.

Please continue with the blog hop by visiting Jo

Jo is one of my favourite blogs to visit and she has a cat called Willow too

Good afternoon from here in England and Pickle Land

I hope to speak to you very soon

However, November has been a really good month on the craft front. I firstly attended the Sarah's Cards Retreat in Warrington (see picture below with two lovely ladies Mandy and Mell) and then this weekend I att…
