Busy Couple Of Weeks

Haven't made any cards over the last week or so cause I went away for a week down to the New Forest. Lovely part of the world and so relaxing. We definitely picked the right week though. While we were down there, hubby surprised me with a day trip to the Isle of Wight from Lymington. Had a great day. On the return ferry, we were 1 of 6 cars only on the ferry. I have been going to the Island regularly since I was 7 and have never seen the ferry that quiet! I did do a bit of crafting whilst away (couldn't go all week without) I took some decoupage to do and have made some Christmas toppers which hopefully will be made into cards!!

On Monday this week we were due to pick up our new car. We had a Kia Sportage 2.6 which was very juicy and as I use the car more than hubby, it was very expensive so we decided on a smaller car and opted for a Ford C-Max 1.6. Have to get used to the gears again as Byf - that was the Kia (yes I am one of those people that name their cars!! Byf was part of the registration plate. ) was an automatic

Here is the Black Panther :-)

As I haven't posted any pictures of my little grandson recently here are a few from yesterday. I can't believe how quickly he is growing.
