evening all............

 It's rained on and off all day but it's quite noisy here tonight with all the fireworks,........but near to where I live, we don't often see bonfires now.
Ours was always a massive one, living on a farm, we collected trees and wood for weeks. Nothing can beat potatoes cooked in the embers with loads of salt, home made treacle toffee and meat and potato pie. The crackerjacks trying to get into your wellies, the spinning wheels which always came off the wall and bangers being thrown behind you (health and safety NO.... we had much more fun !! ) The fireworks were not as powerful but we certainly got a lot more for our money.........even if the rockets didn't reach the moon lol
My card today is what I made for my grandson in Oz........

I used Clare Curd papers  (an old pack)
Image was a gift (no name but could be house mouse / Penny Black)
Coloured with promarkers
3D gloss on raspberry drink
MS punch
Sentiment, candy dots and candles from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Bearly mine challenge ---------------anything goes

Crafty Sentiments ------------ for the boys

Papertake weekly -------------anything goes

Oooo a fabby fun card and perfect for your grandson too - i don't have this stamp, but it is on my wishlist.

I took H to a fireworks display on Friday night - let's hope the fireworks don't start tonight at 11.30 and finish at 1am, like they did on Saturday night :-(, oh and well done for winning at Crafty Sentiments too.

Hi Tilly

Lovely card, beautiful colours and great image.

It's raining here this morning, and looks like it's going to rain all day, as if we have not had enough rain.
We have had fireworks the last four nights, last night was rough and they still put them up.
Have a good day.

As it’s something I don’t like doing will admit to this being a copy and paste comment because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.

Lovely card Tilly and your memories of 5th nov are priceless. Simple things were so special then.
Huge apologies and so sorry I haven't been back to you re a meet up but we've tried to arrange a short break at short notice but I've been shattered since the girls went home. I feel I let you down but hope we can do it again.
The curly girlies almost filled those baskets "Trick or Treating" just around our little close. everyone was so generous and so pleased to see them.
Lots of love Jo x
