Thank You!

Hello Crafters

How are you all, I think I have almost managed to catch up since coming home from our search of a new home county, and I must say, I really didn’t want to come home. We have fallen in love with Taunton, which was a surprise as we were leaning towards Chard, but I felt like I was at home in Taunton, so we are working things through now to see if we can afford to move there!

We stayed at a wonderful little barn conversion in Monkton Heath, and the owners were very friendly and helpful, and the place was amazing, surrounded by idyllic countryside and we went on many a walk with Little Lad as he was allowed too!

This was what we woke up to every morning, so you can understand why we didn’t want to come home, in fact other than my family, the only thing I missed was my card room!

As you can see little lad loved it, and we went walking everywhere everyday, and he came with us everywhere too including the town centres, and as he hadn’t done that before he behaved really well. We also took him to Vivary Park in Taunton which is a beautifully kept local park, and he absolutely didn’t want to leave. All in all we had a wonderful time, and the first thing I made on our return was a ‘Thank You’ to the owners who were so hospitable.

This beautiful stamp is from Honeydoo Crafts – Butterfly Fountain which is a lovely stamp. The ‘Thank You’ – Xcut was cut in fun foam and glittered with Stickles Crystal. I did try to show the background paper from Santoro that has a beautiful shimmer, but couldn’t quite get the angle right to capture it.

Well that’s it folks, not looking forward to return to work tomorrow as I know I will have to work like a trojan to catch up! On a brighter note, I hope to share a video with you (my very first) as I have finally finished the long awaited scrapbook that I keep mentioning (thank goodness). I am quite proud of it and although it’s not perfect, I can’t wait to share.

So hopefully I shall see you soon. Have a wonderful week 🙂

  1. Very pretty card. Glad you had a good trip. Your dog is adorable. Have I seen him here before? What breed or mix is he?

    1. He is a Chi-Apso or posh mongrel! Dad was a black long haired Mexican Chihuahua and his Mum was a cream Lhasa Apso. I wish I had got his sister too as the only ones I can find are American. He’s so good. Stubborn as a mule and has little dog syndrome at times (but he has been twice beaten up by a cat, and bitten 3 times by different dogs) but wouldn’t change him for the world. He’s my buddy 🐕

    1. Thank you. Not looking forward to it, deep breath and dive right in and if I’m lucky I’ll come up for air by the end of the month ready to start the process all over again 😂😭
