Monday #1

Hello ,welcome to my room . Thank you for calling in to see me . Also , welcome to a new follower, Deb . Lovely to have you here and I am sure we will enjoy each other's company .
Anne-Marie has rejoined after dissappearing for a while ..she did not leave me and I did not delete her so I dont know what happened there .
I hope that you all have enjoyed a fabulous weekend .
Doug and I were couch potatoes for most of it .
Both of us love car racing on TV. and this last weekend there was a street V8 race fully covered by TV channel .
Thank Heaven that I had made this card earlier .
I did enjoy creating this one for my Make it Monday DT post.

I have left it with no sentiment for the inside because it may be for a Grandson's birthday or a " just because you did well at school last week" .. card.

The awesome image I have used is one supplied by our sponsor for this week ......
