Good morning friends and fellow blogsters out there!  Well it's the start of another Crafty Calendar Challenge and the theme is 'Add some metal' - this can be a charm, metal corners, brads ... anything that you can think of that is ... metal!!  The challenge runs right through to Friday 8 April and you can enter up to THREE creations.

I thought I would use this Sassy Cheryl image which I won some time ago, she is so cute and I could just nibble that lump of choccy cake (although I can't now .... grrrrrr).

I hope you can find the time to enter our challenge this month, you have loads of time and the prize will be a Gift Voucher for an online crafty shop - details will be given later on the Crafty Calendar Challenge blog (here).  

Thank you, not only for popping over to my blog, but also for the comments on my previous posts.  I really do need to do some ironing now - unless there are any volunteers out there - pleeeeeeease!!!!!   Oh well, worth a try! 

Enjoy the rest of your week, if you are feeling under the weather, I am sending you a virtual hug and hoping that you will feel better soon.

Big hugs to you
