We went shopping yesterday to get ourselves sorted for the weddings which are getting very close!
We had just arrived when we heard a weird clunk and rattle from the car and low and behold part of one of the coil springs had broken off! Great! Thankfully we were able to drive it home safely but now have to have it fixed hopefully Monday!
If we hadn't bad luck we'd have no luck at all! So many things going wrong in our family at the minute, the stress is beginning to tell!

Finished with an organza bow and sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
The little frame is from a set of dies I picked up in The Works which worked perfectly for this little image. Isn't she just the cutest??
