Good Morning Ladies,
Before I start today's post I would like to wish my amazing Husband Paul, the very happiest of Birthdays, you are just the most perfect husband anyone could wish for, be prepared to be treated like a King today, love you millions xxx
I have been saving these cards to show you all while I'm away but I just can't wait any longer! I think it's partly because I have really missed seeing Our Lilian's cards in the Challenges while she has been poorly. This trio of cards was well worth the wait though.
Lilian, all three of your cards are stunning, you have perfected the art of adding just the right amount of sparkle or embellishments.
The first card with the Dandelion, blowing in the breeze is stunning, you have added just the perfect amount of glitter, so that it just sparkles in the light. The sunset in your 'Faux Aperture' is the perfect backdrop for all three of these cards. I absolutely love the edger die you have used in this card too, it's so delicate.
The second card uses the same stamped image but this time you have stamped foliage in opposite corners, making the card look quite different but just as amazing.
The final card features a different stamp, I love this image too, such a peaceful scene of butterflies fluttering around a meadow.
To be honest I have never thought about creating 'Sets' of cards that all have a common theme, like the butterflies and sunset in you cards Lilian, such a fantastic idea that I think I will have a go at when I get home.
Thank you so much for allowing me to share these gorgeous cards with all of our friends Lilian . XXX
I wanted to update you all on our first fun treat of the holiday, Paul and I booked an afternoon in a 'Velo Rail' which is a funny contraption that looks like two bikes out together with a long bench seat at the back, they are fun on old disused railways throughout France, we have been staying in Millau as a stopover for years and the girls have always asked to go on the Velo-Rail but we have never had the time as we are always just passing through. This year Paul suggested that we book it as a surprise for the girls as it may well be the last time they 'want' to come on holiday with us. So that's what we did and we told them on the night before, their faces absolutely lit up!
We set off to find the Station (which was an adventure in itself) and booked in, the girls were insistent about 'driving' so Paul and I were like royalty lounging in the back, we pedalled along the track over 3 different viaducts and experienced the most breathtaking views imaginable, the course that we took was 8 kilometres long, mostly downhill, our drivers were rewarded at the end with a delicious local ice-cream, which we ate while listening to a charming lady playing an accordion, the return journey was by train. All in all it took about three hours, the time whizzed by though.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it, you have to book well in advance though, the whole of August was booked up, so I was relieved that we booked back in May.
