A rest day.........

I was going in to town Yesterday to do a few errands when the car suddenly decided to take me to Wales lol........

It was lovely and sunny and before I knew it I was in Mostyn, North Wales at Aberkhan......I can't tell you what a disappointment it was from when I went a few years ago.The craft shop had all the same old stuff, I just bought some small scissors and embroidery thread. I went in the mill and there was no material I wanted. I needed some soft green for a baby quilt but just came out with 3 small pieces of Christmas material which was over-priced........just £13.50 spent. Off I went to Llandudno and had a very pleasant afternoon in the sunshine. I did call in the craft shop there as well, BUT, all old stuff again, nothing that I wanted or needed lol, Just came out after spending ££21.00 on 2 distress inks, sequin waste and a little card.
I had tea at Weatherspoons and then walked along the beach as the tide came in. Got home at 9pm.
Today I have sorted my errands and also the car insurance due in October. Not doing much this afternoon lol..............

 I made today's card for my neighbours birthday, here is what I used, Lilac cardstock, Dovecraft 'Birthday' papers, cut with MS punch.
Penny Black hedgies matted on to green card.Coloured with promarkers. stickles and 3D gloss on balloon
card candy and sentiment from stash.
