What a breath of fresh air to have something beautiful and positive to share about Europe!!
Janet's amazing card has winged it's way across the channel from France (well the image has)! I think your French cards are usually slightly different to your Yorkshire cards Janet, I don't know whether it's the the different materials that you use in France, or whether you are more relaxed, maybe your view inspires you!, I think that they are more floral and vintage, it may just be my imagination though, either way I LOVE your cards!
You have used your Floral Muse Paper on this card, I'm not sure whether the back paper is Vintage Notes by Papermania, I love how you have rolled the paper in to the centre of the card, placing doillies behind, the benefit of this is that you get to see both sides of the paper you have used, it's usually a tough choice which side of the paper to go with, particularly this paper range as you have the lovely handwritten postcard images on one side and gorgeous roses and butterflies on the other.
Your flower spray looks so pretty Janet, I love the resin bows that you have used in the corners and I REALLY love those pretty resin leaf sprays on the doilies and the hearts in the other corners. Woe, somebody's birthday is going to be brightened when they open this card! Thank you so much for sending this card over for me to share with our lovely friends. XXX
Margaret, I was so sorry to read about your insect bite, I saw it late on Saturday night but i had already posted Sundays blog, I hope that the antibiotics have gotten to work and that you haven't reacted badly, I totally understand why you didn't want to risk going, even if you hadn't reacted to the antibiotics you wouldn't have been able to relax and enjoy your trip. Isn't it frustrating that you look forward to something for so long and something happens last minute to spoil it! I am sure Alan was happy to have you home instead and it means we get to see you in here too, so every cloud has a silver lining! I hope your team are successful too! Xxx
Pat, I hope your journey home was a smooth one, I am looking forward to hearing all about your holiday, I have received the rest of your photos and I thought I would post them when you are back so that you could explain about them better than I could xxx
Val, I hope that you and Lynn have had a lovely weekend shopping, I hope that you squeezed him some craft shopping too, looking forward to seeing your haul!!
I'm sending love and hugs to all of you,
