Something Floral For Friday
Good Friday Morning Ladies,
I have chosen another one of Pat's stunning Groovi cards for this week's 'Something Floral' feature, those flowers look so pretty in shades of violet/purple and yellow, like little pansies of violas.
Pat has then used her Ball tool and created an absolutely stunning frame around that central floral piece.
Pat's friend Carole designs these frames on her Silhoutte (cutting machine) and then designs the Groovi template to fit the frame, which is a really clever idea, it works beautifully too, as it really highlights every little bit of the detail of the Groovi Frame work.
Pat, thank you so much for making these cards and keeping them for me to share while I was on holiday, I am very grateful my lovely xxxx
Yesterday's adventure was to a nearby Water Park called Aqua Brava, to be honest it isn't something we have been bothered about this past few years as I would have had to pay the full price but not be able to go on any of the rides/slides but this year I emailed them explaining that our Children wanted to attend but I didn't think it was fair to have to pay 30 euros to sit and do nothing. Surprisingly the emailed me back and said that as I was in a wheelchair they would let me in for free, so re relented, on previous occasions we have dropped Becca and the girls off and gone and picked them up later but this time Lucy wanted a partner to go on the rides with and Paul enjoys them so we decided to give it a go. I downloaded a couple of books onto my Kindle so that I had something to do while they were sliding and riding the waves! We were a bit concerned about the weather but as we got closer to the park the sun came out and it was a glorious day, it was really quiet too as its the end of the season, so they didn't have to queue for more than 5 minutes for any ride. We had a lovely lunch and I had a couple of trips around the 'Lazy River' or 'Rio Tranquil' to give it it's correct name.
Just as they were finished there were rumbles of thunder and lightning in the distance, the park is in the Bay Of Roses and is super close to the mountains, so I am guessing thunder storms are quite common. I can honestly say that all four of them were totally wiped out by the time we got back, so it was a very quiet night.
Today will be a chill out day, we will also start to do some packing, as we are supposed to vacate the mobile home by 10am on Saturday, I do remember the chap saying that he has 17 people all leaving on the same day though, so I am hoping he will give us an extra hour. Depending on the weather we will either spend a few hours by the pool or maybe go into a local town.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
