Good morning

I hope I find you well today and getting back into a routine if your off-spring are just back in school .This is a long post with pictures from last weeks holiday.........

Here is an anniversary card made for my friend in Blackpool and again I have used the First edition 'rose garden' papers ( I must put this away now lol.....I used a kraft card base and matted on to pale green card.Stella and Gus are from Bugaboo and coloured with promarkers, MS double heart punch. The lace is from Aberkhan and the ribbon from Mei-flower, the cheesecloth, heart doily, sentiments and viva pearls are from stash.
I would like to enter the following challenges;
Joanna Sheen------------ Ribbons

Crafty sentiments ----------anything goes

One stitch at a time ------------ Use a digi

Divas for design ------------ weddings or anniversarys

Glitter and sparkle -----------add a bow

The weather is certainly moving towards Autumn now, especially at night time. I was away in Wales last week and stayed at Dongelleu near Barmouth, We had super sunshine all week, going around without cardigan's. We stayed in a converted barn, half way up the Calder Idris mountain, such a cosy place. We came home of an evening and dined off local Welsh lamb (sorry to the sheep in the next field lol)......bread from the local bakery and blackberry crumble and sponges made with hand picked blackberries from down our lane.

Our cottage

The kitchen was home from home
 We went around  Bala lake on the small gauge railway..........
Into Barmouth a few times........
To Harlech Castle........
And to Portmerion where 'The Prisoner' was made in the 70's

I think I had better stop there because we also visited other beautiful places and you are probably asleep now lol.
Enjoy your week and I shall be back on Friday with my card for Crafty Catz

Hugs Tilly x
