It's a Public Holiday and guess what?
It's only blooming well raining and has been most of the night!! Fortunately, we hadn't planned a BBQ but that's not the point - what is UP with our weather? I've said it before and will probably end up saying it again!, our weather is FREAKY!
Hope it hasn't spoiled any plans you may have for today.
Yesterday my neighbour (and friend, I might add) took her young nephew here, bet she's soooo glad she didn't arrange to go today - can't imagine anything worse than a soggy day at a British (and therefore chilly!) theme park!
We went to visit one of "the Surrogates" yesterday but discovered a whole load of cars parked outside the house so didn't intrude on their party! preferring instead to carry on out and just admire some scenery. It was, however, a pretty dull old afternoon and my camera stayed firmly in its pouch - so no pix to share with you all.
However, I did decide to have another go at the three greens challenge over on the Simply Less Is More blog and did something a little different from my last entry ...... I like this one a lot and think it could do duty as a sympathy card, a get well card or even a male birthday card - what do you think?
Rosie set a challenge of "SUNSHINEY MOMENTS" over on Craft Mad and Loving It and I chose to combine it with the "ANYTHING BUT A CARD" challenge on the same group and came up with this - not my finest work but it IS a bit of fun! The moment I read Rosie's challenge I thought of childhood Bank Holiday journeys to the seaside and the plaintiff cry "are we nearly there yet?"!!! Images are by Fiskars, Hampton Art and an unknown source (basically I DESTROYED the packaging trying to remove the blooming things and it was quite a while ago). Having rediscovered this set though, I'm thinking the car might come in handy again! And, of course, after yesterday's project featured no stamping whatsoever - it was obvious that there would be quite a bit on the next project (see card above)!
Hope you've enjoyed your pit stop at my blog, hope you'll find time to leave me a comment too.
Enjoy the remainder of your Easter break.
