Holiday in France

Hubby and I have just returned from a week long holiday to France to visit my in laws. They live in a little hamlet called Chambe near Vouleme. Right out in the middle of nowhere, peace and quiet. It was lovely spending tome with my brother in law and his family. The weather was beautiful especially for our visit to La Rochelle.

Here are a few pictures of the week.

'My Besties' Birthday card

Today I will be looking after Ollie my grandson and then at 3pm, picking up Leon from school so I will have no time to post during the day so I have scheduled this post. 

This is a card that I have made for my sister's birthday. The image is from 'My Besties' and was coloured in using promarkers. All other items from my stash. I have never really been taken with these images before but have to say that I really liked colouring on this one so watch this space for another one :-)

Scotney Castle - 2nd Sept

I have so much to catch up on and do that I am adding more things to my to do list than I am crossing off!!. Anyway, no card to show you on this post, only some pictures from a trip that hubby and I took to Scotney Castle the other week. The weather was a bit overcast but luckily the rain stayed away until we were due to leave.

The walled garden wasn't at it's best as it's late in the season and most of the flowers wee dying, however the grounds and the house were magnificent. The house was actually lived in up until 2006. It was open to the public via the National Trust in 2007. I love looking round old houses and learning all about the history. 

The visit was finished off with a cream tea. Don't mind if I do!!!! :-) 









This tree was huge!! so tall, the white blob is Gary just to show how tall the tree was.

Another walk & Wellington the Bear

Today hubby and I decided to go for a walk. We started off at Beach Green in Lancing and walked along the seafront as far as the the Goring roundabout, a round trip of approx 8 miles. It was a lovely day and a lovely walk although by the time I got back to the car my feet were aching a bit :-) 


I do have a card to show you this evening, one that I ave made for my nephew. I have used Wellington Bear which has been decoupaged. Kraft card has been used for the baking card and the backing paper used was from the Wellington kit. I have used some string to decorate the card, some gems from my stash. The greeting has been stamped using memento ink.

Workshop Card - 1st Sept 2016

 Today I am showing you the card that we made at Clair's last workshop. It is a card made decorated with rolled flowers which are one of my nemesis!! I do not enjoy doing them at all.  I did do a few but the card was finished off with pre - made roses. Could have probably used a few more flowers on it but it looks ok like this. 

For the card we used Sweet Dixie Happy Birthday, Spellbinders Rolled Flowers, MFT Rolled flowers, MFT Rolled Scalloped flower die, and Sue Wilson Noble Stitched Rectangles. Clear sequins and several coloured card.
