Mothers Day Card

This card I made for my Mum whilst I was away with the girls. I used my new Martha Stewart punch to make the doily which I purchased in the USA. Punched a couple of butterflies using a die and added some sparkle. Hope she likes it. I will be going out with all my children to Cambridge on sunday to have a late lunch at The Chop House. Hope you all have a good mothers day x

A week with the girls

 Well I am just settling back into the swing of things after a fabulous week away with the girls. Yes a whole week of scrapbooking, card making and sewing. We all stayed in a bungalow on a farm in Newbury. It was a nice setting and the weather was perfect. Lots of late nights and some late mornings too.

There were six of us who traveled from Devon, Norfolk, Hampshire and Hertfordshire it was great to meet up as hadn't seen some for years and some I had never met before but we all got on fine.

The good news is….we have booked to do it all again next year, happy days.

I shall be posting my makes shortly so keep popping back xx

Birthday Weekend In Spain

 Just back from a lovely weekend staying with friends in Spain. Pete and I now always seek out Segway tours when we are away we love them and the guides are a good way to find out about the cities.

We went to Valencia for the day and done the obligatory tour on Segways our friends had never been on them before and now they are hooked. There was a lovely park which used to be the old river bed which leads from the town and has many interesting pieces of architecture. So as you can imagine snap happy was miles behind the rest trying to take pictures.

Also some lovely sunsets were to be had. This one was at the harbour in a place called Denia. Well there will be some crafting posts coming soon as off next weekend on my week away with the girls so better get packing. Have a good weekend everyone x
