2nd post of the day, please scroll down to read my earlier post

Well, as most of my regular readers will know, we are coming to the end of our five week vacation in Florida and have to pack up and head home on Wednesday of this very week. The time has simply flown by and we have really LOVED IT here and can hardly wait till our next trip!

Anyway, this morning hubby was out on the pool deck pressure washing the metal screen room and then hosed down the windows, which I then went out and cleaned - which I don't do at home by the way!! We have a "man who does" - who goes by the name of Joe and he's such a good bloke and we've gotten on very well with him over the years he's been coming to us - so much so that we are invited (with another neighbour) to the wedding of his daughter! We're looking forward to that in July. I've also been mopping floors and doing laundry so we've had a fairly productive morning and rewarded ourselves with a good long "dunk" in the pool - to cool off!

Have managed a little crafting in between these chores though - hope you like this.......

Materials used:
  • White ATC blank coloured using Memento Angel Pink
  • Inkadinkado flourish inked in versafine pink
  • Perfect pearls (pink) brushed quickly over the whole ATC before the ink dried
  • Image, coloured using copic markers and Sakura stardust clear glitter pen

We're heading off out this afternoon as we have some mail we have to post - so need to hit the Post Office and I will probably be FORCED to do a little last minute shopping! Well, if I'm lucky anyway.

Hope you have all been making the most of the Bank Holiday and what I believe has been lovely weather, back in the U.K. - bet it'll change around Thursday morning, when we get back!

Great ATC Kathy - such a sweetie. Well done on all that cleaning. Still nice here so you and Steve may be ok when arriving back - obviously a little cooler though. Have a great last couple of days. A little light shopping may be? Safe journey. Hugs Cherry XxX
