100 + Fab Followers and DT Card for Totally PaperCrafts

Good morning all.
 Hope the weather where you are is better than here, ours is totally pants, Someone must have the sunshine!  Typical, seeing as it's  the Annual Sue Ryder Garden Party  this Sunday and yours truly here is running the Tombola stall with some friends. For those of you who don't know, Sue Ryder's  provides respite care for Cancer patients and I have been involved in fund raising for them for quite a few years. I lost my lovely mum to cancer 12yrs ago, she was only 68 and my Husbands father died in the Hospice and the care they provided to him was truly wonderful, so we wanted to give something back. So whatever the weather we will be there !

Now a huge thankyou to my fab followers, I have passed the 100 mark YIPEE! so I will get together some candy my dears and hopefully post that next week, so watch this space. You are all amazing.

My card today is my DT card for Totally PaperCrafts. The lovely Vicky has chosen the theme for this weeks challenge, "Here Comes Summer" and this weeks fabulous Sponsor is
