Back home and 70th Birthday

Hello there!

I'm back from holiday and happy to be home ... It was a lovely break and the weather was amazing but I missed my son, my cats and my creative space and I missed popping in to see you all and your creations... There's no place like home!

I have a card to share that I made for my husbands friend who celebrated his 70th whilst we were away 


I cut the front on my silhouette and turned it into a shaker


I rarely share photos of myself but here are a couple taken from the chill out space on the top floor of our hotel - I've no doubt that once the colder weather takes hold here in the UK I will wish I were back there just chillin' and seeing that beautiful view as the sun dips over the mountians



I hope to catch up with you all soon

Wishing you a beautiful day

~ Ros ~

What a great chill out space. Yep won't be long before you'll wish you are back there in the sunshine! Thank you so much for finding time to pop over to my blog and leave such generous comments, very much appreciated. Welcome home.

Meant to say...Love your clever card. Don't have a machine that cuts out and haven't tried shaker cards yet but after seeing this, it's on my to do list. Gorgeous card and no doubt very well received by the recipient.

I am glad you are back home safely and glad that you had a great time!
That's a wonderful card you make!
Like you, I rarely take photo of myself, but on the other end, it is really good to see your photo, I think maybe it is because we are so-called blog friends, but it seems like we know each other so much and have so much in common, seeing your photo just make me feel even closer to you. Thanks for sharing them.!

Loving the shaker card with all the fun "shakey" stuff inside!!! Another one I must "PIN"!! Lovely pictures of you too...the vacation sure flew by didn't it.....seems like you just left, and if I think that it must really seem like it to you! Glad you had a fabulous time, glad to see you back!! Little kitty is doing great, though she is a little monster, I forgot how cute and awful at the same time kittens can be...lol!
