Have made another 2....

Yep I have made another 2 cards over the weekend. One is a wedding card and the other will go into my spare box!!

The wedding card is made from a white pearlescent 5" x 7" card. The top 3/4's of the card was run through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder. An embellishment of champagne glassed on a printed matt was put in the middle of the card. A silver peeloff 'Congratulations' was put on the bottom and 3 glass gems stuck underneath.

The second card is also a 5" x 7" white pearlescent card, the top half has been put through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder. Patterned paper was used to cover the bottom of the card with the join covered by yellow sticky ribbon. A piece of yellow organza ribbon was put down the center side. The dufex decoupage flower fairy was stuck on a piece of creamy yellow card and mounted in the centre of the card. A few gold peeloffs were put around the fairy. Not sure what or who will get this one yet so have left the greeting off at the moment.

Thanks for reading.

Devon - March 2009

Well I have survived my first day back at work following my gret holiday down in Devon. We stayed in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere and I mean nowhere. Nearest shop was 6 miles away! We were between Bideford and Barnstable. The road that the campsite was in was called 'The Road'. It was so peaceful.

The site was lovely set in the middle of a copse, in the area that we were in there were only 4 cabins. This is our one 'Foxglove'. As you can see it had a hot tub also which was lovely.

Hubby and I haven't been down to Devon for years and it was lovely being down there again. This was the first time that we had stayed in North Devon though as we normally stayed down near Dartmoor.

The weather was good on the Saturday and Sunday. On the Monday it was a bit cold but we went down to Morwellum Quey which is down near Tavistock. It's an old mining village which has been restored and normally in the summer, people of the village would walk around in Victorian costume. However as this was out of season they weren't dressed up as they were getting it ready for the tourist season. It was still good to go back there. We had fun in dressing up in the costumes.

On the Tuesday the heavons opened and it rained all day. This was the day we decided to go to Lynton and Lynmouth. What beautiful villages. We had a ride up the Cliff train from Lynmouth up to Lynton. As you can see from the picture we all had to wrap up against the elements.

On Wednesday we woke up to a light dusting of snow which looked beautiful but had melted by the time we went out. However on Wednesday evening it snowed quite heavily. I managed to get some photos of it and then on Thursday morning we woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland.

The hot tub was fun in the snow. Felt like we were in the snowy mountains.

On the way home on Saturday we drove through the New Forest which is another of my favourite places!.

Back to reality now and countdown to my next holiday. Only 7 weeks to go!!!!
