Home again, Home again joggity jog...........

Good morning all,
I arrived back on Tuesday morning into Manchester at temps of 7 degrees after leaving Darwin, Australia the day before and temps of 36 degrees...... do I wish I was back ????? Yes!

It was nice to get home again after 7 weeks though......... 3 weeks in Auckland New Zeland with my Nephew and his wedding, and 4 weeks in Humpty Doo, Darwin with My Son and family. It was very different spending Christmas in the sunshine, although because of cyclone Oswald, we did not get a beach barbie! still, the weather for the wedding was great and that was more important.We still ate and drank far too much for our own good lol........
 My suitcase had an extended holiday and arrived here last night at 10.15 pm. Today, I have 2 lines of washing blowing in the wind, hopefully drying before the rain forecast at lunchtime.

I have missed my crafting and sewing while I have been away, so yesterday, I sat down and made two thank you cards which are now winging their way back to the other side of the world lol.....

Thank you cut with cricut
white gel pen for dots on words
MS butterfly punch
Ribbon from stash
viva pearl pens

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Flutterby Wednesday ----- open-----must have a butterfly

Beccys Place --------- something begining with B-- Butterflies and bow

For fun challenge ------ Thank you

Hugs Tilly x

Hi Tilly

Lovely to see you back and sounds like you had a great time and enjoyed your holiday, That's the trouble with holidays there's always a catch it provides a lot of washing
Great cards, lovely colours.
