Yesterday I went out with the WI to visit a country house which is not normally open to the public unless by special arrangement. The gardens are, but not the house, so it was quite an interesting visit. The house was built a few years before the Civil War and is still in the hands of the same family. Quite an achievement. The weather forecast said rain and sure enough in the early part of the day it certainly delivered. But fortunately it really brightened up and we had a lovely tour of the house and walk round the garden. We also had afternoon tea at a local hotel so it was a very pleasant day all round.

My card today is made with SB Tranquil Moments which I have not yet used. Once again I was able to use everything totally from my bits box, even the card base because it was an offcut from an A3 sheet. Mind you, it doesn't seem to be getting much less! I also added SB Labels 16 in the dark fuchsia card so that the lacy detail showed up more. The sentiment is from JustRite Birthday Vintage Labels 4. I then just added a bow and a few pearls. Even the ribbon is very old stash which I have never got round to using. A very simple card to make yet one which looks quite special I think.
I think I'll pop over to the Snippets Playground to see if anybody is playing. Better wear my wellies I think just in case!
Well that's all from me today. Thank you for your visit.
