If It's Monday It Must be Kanban!!

Good Morning, All
The lovely, Karen Smith of Kanban Crafts has arranged with us that normal submission day for Kanban DT work (play but don't tell !!) is going to be Monday so will hoping to share things I send with you at least on a Monday and probably at other times but Monday for sure.
We were lucky enough to receive a lovely goody box and, as I already have so much Kanban goodies in my crafty stash already, it is going to fun mixing and matching things. Actually, it already has !! I have a couple of things to send so I hope it is okay to post them one at a time. I really hope you will have a look and let me know what you think and I am hoping my friends old and new will enjoy what I am posting. Karen will be adding them to my own folder on Kanban facebook so it would be wonderful if you could pop over there once they are on and leave a word or two. Each of us will have our own folder and as we send things to Karen she will be updating those. I hope you will be patient with me this week as it may be Wednesday or Thursday before I catch up properly but you know I will.
