The other week I received a fabulous ATC from Deb but as I knew that one was on it's way from Elizabeth I thought I would show both in the same post
Here is Deb's
It arrived with a beautiful card and some lovely bits and pieces that Deb said she hoped I could use!
Thank you so much Deb! It will be a case of 'Watch this space!" as I have something in mind!
Elizabeth's packet arrived last week not long before we left for our caravan with some definitely usable stamps!
The ATC - you may have already seen the ones Elizabeth sent - was a very clever idea! I wouldn't play cards with Elizabeth if you drop by her house one day though!
Along with them came THE most beautiful handmade papers - as I was sitting beside hubby on our sofa he would tell you that I was making the loudest Oohs!and Aahs! anyone ever made - it may be time before I can bear to use them but I can tell you that I definitely will be - maybe a little piece at a time!!! Every single one is beautiful! Not only that, Elizabeth was pestered into sending me some deli paper so I am making plans for using that too!
|See what I mean!|
I have seen Elizabeth's post about my ATC package and have already confessed to her in an e-mail that she would not have got those dies if I hadn't spotted them in a box at Paperchase a few weeks ago with a massive 85% off them! My halo is definitely slipping now!!
Last week we went up to our caravan - on Friday we had an outing to Furness Abbey - somewhere we have tried to visit before but found it closed.
We stopped on the way for a picnic by the sea!
We stayed in the car but some folk were out walking - maybe next time…
We did get the binoculars out though - we could see Heysham quite well, but to the right of it we could see Blackpool quite well with the 'bins'!
We arrived at Furness Abbey and it was looking very much like rain so we knew we would have to get a move on!
We hadn't got far when it started to rain - Furness Abbey is in ruins but fortunately round by the cloisters there was some shelter - it was a short shower and we were able to see the rest of the abbey without getting wet!
I loved seeing these flowers that were growing out of crevices in the walls!
As it is Tuesday I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday!
We had intended visiting the cafe near the abbey - they sell the most delicious scones EVER, but they wren just shutting up - I suppose with it being a dull day not many folk were going down there!
We drove back to Ulverstone and called in to Booths for some shopping and shared a chocolate tiffin cake with our drinks - Tea for him and Americano for me!
Hubby was in his acting up mode so I thought this one...
…or maybe this one….
…would give you an idea of what I have to put up with!!!
You do know I'm only joking…..or am I??
Oh! and before I go I am linking my Thankyou tag to Tag Tuesday where the theme is Use Your Scraps
My next post is a reminder about Try It On Tuesday where the Postcard/Mailart theme still has week to go!
Thanks for looking, Chris
