Jubilee Weekend

Good Afternoon all.

Hope you are enjoying the jubilee weekend. We haven't really done much. We went to Hardwick Hall on Sunday where there was supposed to be a 1950s style street party but that was a bit of a washout so we just had a mooch around the hall and then left to go see Emily in Lincoln. She is coming home from uni next week so as we were only 45 mins away we thought we would go see her and bring some of her stuff back so there wouldn't be as much to carry next week. We went for a lovely meal and it was so nice to see her and catch up.

Yesterday we just did a bit of shopping and tidying up.  Today Chris is out in the garden.  He is making a new bed at the end of the garden where hopefully we are going to grow some fruit and veg. 

I thought as I had a couple of hours to spare before the French Open, mens quarter finals start I would get another Christmas card made to add to my collection

Top Tip - When cutting the glitter card, put your double sided tape on the back first so the glitter doesn't flake off and leave a white edge.

Image Pink Petticoat - Have an Ice Day
Coloured with Promarkers
Matted onto glitter card from Wilkies.
Martha Stewart Punch - Arch Lattice
gems and ribbon from stash.

I am entering it into a few challenges:
ABC Christmas - K - Keep it Simple
Crafty Hazel - Right Royal Purple
Top Tip Tuesday - Sparkle (Gems, Glitter card and sparkle in the faux snow)

Super positioning of the ribbon with the image & nicely CAS without being too stark.
Glad you've had a good Jubilee Break even if the party didn't go to plan.
