My Lovely Followers- Thank You

Tuesday, 23 August 2011


Hi again, well I managed to get the washing done, tidied up and even got round to making a card. Oh! I have missed my stamps and pens whilst I was away, although had a really fab time with my lovely hubby Wayne. We ended up going to Lincoln for the day where we did The Castle, Cathederal, Bishops Palace and then the ghost walk. Some shopping in between. We then had 3 days in Blackpool with our friends Jo & Paul, where we did loads of pubs! :o) Then yesterday we went to Matlock with our daughter Sam and Bradley, our Grandson. We all had the most lovely day, played on the old fashioned slots, had a yummy chippy dinner and played on the park.

Bradly & his Grandad walking over the wobbly bridge to the pirate ship.

Hope you all have had a really great weekend too, there's nothing better than spending time with family is there?

Anyhoo! here's the card I made earlier:

I used: BnW Elizabeth Bell 'Sisters'
K& co & Serif papers
Spectrum Noirs & Derwent pencils
Whimsey ticket stamp & die
Marriane D dies
Scrim, ribbon, flowers & dew drops from stash

I followed a fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday
and I'm also entering it into BnW 'anything goes'

Hope you all have a really lovely afternoon, will be back later for a HUGE catch up. :o)
