Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope you all enjoyed the glorious sunshine yesterday, it was fairly mild too, we spent most of the day outside. We stopped mid afternoon for a little afternoon tea. Some boys in our village are doing their Duke Of Edinburgh award scheme Bronze badge, they have to support a charity as part of the scheme so they decided to do Cream Tea in a box, for 2 for £5, all proceeds going to Prospect House Hospice, a 4 of ours did D of E so we were happy to support them, it was delivered in a lovely box, there were two fruit scones, 2 pots of jam, 2 pots of Clotted Cream and 2 Cornish Teabags, that was our late lunch sorted, we had some of a local gentleman's Bread that he bakes to order, followed by our cream tea, I warmed the scones and they literally melted in your mouth.
Today's card I made on Friday using the Magazine Freebies from the last issue of Creative Stamping Magazine. I embossed the card with the free embossing folder, next step was to blend some distress oxides lightly over the embossed area. I used Spiced Marmalade & Scattered Straw. I layered the embossed piece onto gold card and then onto a white card blank. To finish my card I stamped the dress, shoe and lipstick and fussy cut them, I used my Zig Clean colour pens to add colour to the three pieces, to finish I added some tiny diamantés to the dress & shoe. This is totally a different style of card for me, however I quite like how it turned out.
Janet, how did you get on booking your journey to Marigny? Did you choose Channel Tunnel or Ferry? We (fortunately) booked the Tunnel when we booked a couple of months ago, hopefully the huge issue that P&O have caused will sort itself out soon as it is causing massive issues on the M20 and road all the way into Dover. We booked a hotel that's only 8 miles from tunnel entrance, so we shouldn't have too many problems fingers crossed. We did find booking our hotels that we usually use along the journey were really booked, there was very little availability, I guess it's because this is the first year going back to having no restrictions i hope that you got everything booked ok xxx
I hope that you all have a great day, I think we are forecast rain, so no sunshine today.
Love & Hugs to all of you,
