Good Thursday Morning Ladies,
Well yesterday seemed a long day, we were up early and had to start the day with no 🍵 tea! We couldn't get milk anywhere for some reason, the supermarkets only have a really small milk section in Spain and actually in Millau the supermarket only had 4 bottles, they have lots of Long life milk, aisles full, so I'm guessing they use more of that, Paul went and got some fresh croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice, which was lovely but my goodness did I suffer afterwards, my tummy and digestive system has not been the same since I was sick, heartburn is so painful and I felt so sick I had to go lie down. We then had to pack the car (when I say we....) we left the mobile home at around eleven and went to the car wash area as our poor car was covered in sand and bird 'doings' we had great fun and both ending up soaked. We then went to fill up with Diesel and get something for picnic lunch. The Spanish government are giving back 20 cents per litre of fuel, for everyone (not just Spanish) so filling up was a lot cheaper, thank you very much. We set off on the 200 mile journey to Millau, stopping for lunch at a scenic spot. We arrived at our little cabin at 6 15 unloaded most ofbour overnight bits I went to put wash bags in bathroom to find a colony of ants wete already occupying it, there were even flying ants!! Paul said "we'll just keep door closed to bathroom 😳)! Err absolutely not !! They were in amongst the towels and everything! Paul went to reception to request some help, they are all about the environment so I don't think they would have appreciated me scooting Ant powder everywhere! She explained that the cabin had been empty for 3 days which is why it went unnoticed, she was very apologetic and gave us another cabin that was actually a Chalet with a full kitchen, lounge area etc, it was really high up too with great views!
Today's card was made using dies from Diecutting Essentials Magazine, they are a lovely set of Wildflower dies. I used the dies to cut a pile of white flowers, I arranged on a piece of white card and die cut a hexagonal frame, the white die cuts on white background give the look of a deep embossing folder. I coloured the remaining flowers with alcohol Markers, I placed the frame on a piece of Dsp that has the look of a 3d painted effect and then arranges the coloured flowers through the frame, finishing with sentiment.
I hope that you all have a lovely Thursday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
