Hi Friends.

So how was your Bank Holiday last weekend...UK only of course? Wet? well yes I think that goes without saying doesn't it! Hubby and I managed a ride over the North Yorkshire Moors on Sunday..(cloudy but no rain)...all the heather was in full bloom so very pretty with all the purple, shame the sun did not just put in an appearance. We drove home down the coast and stopped at Bridlington for a fish and chip supper and then home .......but captured this beautiful sunset on the way.

OK...onto a card..........

My son and DIL........(.the ones of strawberry Santa fame...see earlier blog post) are expecting their first baby next I sent them a card to celebrate the wonderful news. Yes I am to be a Grandma at last!

It is a Stamping Bella digi image called Baby Shower (I think)......doing a lot of that today...thinking.... which I coloured with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders die (I think).......there I go again! The rest speaks for itself.

Right I must dash as I have rather a busy day today. I will not be around for a little while........well blogging anyway but will still pop in to your blogs to see what you will be doing. I am going tomorrow on a long weekend...........courtesy of that chain of hotels run by the NHS..........and strangely they do not figure on trip advisor!! crafting will be off the calendar for a little while at least. I won't go into details but a surgeon and a knife are involved ...and he won't be cutting out decoupage with his scalpel...well I trust not!

Thank you for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments that you leave me. It is so good to know that you enjoy my ramblings and my cards! I do hope you will come and visit me again on my return...........I'll be getting my crafty fix from all your gorgeous creations in the meantime.

Take care friends and have a wonderful weekend.

  8. CAROLE *waving wildly* Apologies galore for being tardy in visiting; this back to work thing, paired with travels and bike race officiating has me scatter allll over the place! First: WOO HOOOOO on the news of becoming a Grandma! So exciting! I'm old enough to be a granny (55...eek!) but having no children of my own, such a role is not one I'll ever have. The best, most awesome alternative: being Aunty C to Ms. T and Mr. C! You will be a most awesome grandma...only a few more months! Gorgeous card, which I know your DIL loved, as do I. The sunset: glorious! Nature...miracles...A trip to the hospital? Oh my...sending hugs and prayers that all goes well, my sweet friend!
