Happy Monday my friends, hope you have all had a fabulous weekend...Before I head to the new challenge at Whoopsi Daisy, I wanted to let you know, that after driving to Dundee on Wednesday, I had to have my wrist re-strapped and told to rest until Today.  I have to say the pain was worth seeing our new little Princess in the making, she was moving around fabulously, and was trying so hard to suck her thumb...was so different, to Noah's 20 week Scan, when Mhairi, was told to go and have a sugary drink (has anyone ever tried getting a sugary drink in a hospital, LOL) to waken the wee tyke up..

I am going to start from today doing Blog comments, I think it will be impossible to catch up, on all the ones I have missed so far, so please bear with me, my friends.

Any Hoo...There is lots of exciting times ahead for Whoopsi Daisy Fans.  We will continue to run our weekly challenge, until the end of November, then there will be a break in December, so that we can bring you a brand new Blog and Challenge in January..Linnie has been forced, due to the European VAT laws to give up on her Digi Shop, but she is continuing with her CD's thankfully.  We have as a Guest DT the fabulous Kathy Mills, we are very excited to have you on board Kathy.

Ribbon from JT's Ribbon Design

The Winner and Top 3 from last week can be found HERE.  Congratulations and thank you to all who played along.

We have a fairly new and exciting Facebook page for Whoopsi Daisy Fans, which you can join  HERE.
