Card # 3
These two cards are very simple. The pink one has a border of pretty flowers across the top while the red one has side borders of roses. I am determined to use that Hunkydory Festive Poetry book. I just layered the image and then added Tonic Nuvo drops and a small poinsettia die from Marianne Creations.
I said that we were on holiday and unfortunately the weather was dire - rain every day!. It didn't stop us going out everyday but we were unable to do some of the things that we had planned. We had a beautiful cottage in Powys so at least we very comfortable when we were inside.
But I think the weather was even worse here. We got home to find there had been a really bad storm which brought down an enormous ash tree at the bottom of our land. Fortunately it fell to the right, rather than into the road, but it damaged our farmer neighbour's fence so as well as sorting out the tree John had to sort out the fence. Mind you the fence was in an appalling state anyway. He doesn't exactly spend money on decent fencing - some of it is old pallet wood and bits of other rubbishy stuff, including pieces of old rusted metal. We do have two log burners so it means we will have lots of wood when it has had time to season.
Well that's it from me.
Take care and happy crafting.
Pretty card. It's such a shame when the weather spoils your holiday.

Hi Christine, three very lovely cards, perfect for Kate's challenge. Shame about the weather you had on your holiday. Seems, according to the long term forecast that we are in for a hot spell in July. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
3 gorgeous cards, sorry the weather wasn't kind for your holiday but this year has been pretty bad so far. Hopefully it will pick up xx
Three stunning cards but oh my the middle one caught my eye the most. I love the colours. We have fencing being replaced later today. Now that the old shed is down we can get to the section to the side of it . Been up for 37yrs so has stood the test of time. Probably because the shed( which was in a sorry state ) was protecting it from the weather. Hugs Mrs A.
Really pretty cards Christine - I love them all - hard to choose a favourite! Hugs rachel xx
