I am off on holiday (Yipee)!!!!


















These stunning apricot roses were a gift from a lovely mummy at my school, aren't they gorgeous the photograph doesn't do them justice really, they smell divine and the colour is much richer than shows here.
I was lucky enough to receive a few gifts including lots of yummy chocolates, check these out, it was a shame to eat them as each animal is a work of art.
Here are a couple of mini thank you cards that I have made, the first one isn't my usual style but I was inspired by Jenny's cards, they always make me smile.






















This is a great thank you card for a child and I had fun creating the scene, as I have used lots of stamped images I will enter it in Jenny's current challenge.























The second one was made using stamped scraps from my scraps basket, it always feels good to use some up!
This will be my last post for two weeks as I am off to sunny Italy tomorrow, I can't wait!!  We are driving down through France and sightseeing in a few french towns before we get to the Ligurian coast. I shall take lots of photographs to show you while I am away.
