Back from our travels

Hello all I am back from our holiday, we had a fantastic time the weather was good it didn't rain during the day apart from Friday, we were going to go to Doncaster wildlife Zoo but it was too wet.

We found loads of craft shops all around Yorkshire it was great, I was so spoilt I've never seen so many and I went into everyone.

We were also taken out with our Step-Mum's Brother and Sister-in-law Monica and David, Monica makes cards too, we went for miles to all fantastic craft places, we went to the Kanban shop wow it was amazing, we went to Shipton and that was like a Aladdin's cave.

We did go sight seeing too we saw the Minster at York it was an amazing place, the lovely countryside in Yorkshire is beautiful.

I have now come down to earth with a bang, we only have 1 craft shop on the Island, so you can see why I was so excited to find all those fab crafty places on holiday.

Anyway enough of my rabble here is a card I made before we went away so I thought I would share it with you. It's from the Morehead Cd rom from Crafters Companion.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, it's poring with rain here and it's very windy too.

Thank you for stopping by.
