Home Again

Hello there ...
I'm back home tucked up in my craft room once more ... It was lovely spending time in Lincoln ... although it was so cold on the east coast!
The day we went into Lincoln city it was really freezing ... It's such a lovely city ... a mix of old and new ... Tudor style buildings and cobbled streets with a river running through - swans gliding along - gave way to the more modern sections and the vast university buildings. 
We visited the market and I was amazed at the beautiful home grown fruit and vegetables ... so much bigger and cheaper than here ... Time (and my Aunt's bad hip) didn't permit us to wander too far and being as it was so cold ... we only shopped for the necessities and then were taken home to have tea and cake in the warmth of her little home.

I really enjoyed the rest I got ... and now it's back to reality ... laundry, cleaning, cooking and with some crafting thrown in ... Starting with today's challenge at City Crafter where we have sweet Kirsty hosting for us ...
Kirsty has chosen a beautiful inspiration photo for her challenge 
"Wings of An Angel"
Make a project that includes wings (angels, pixies, butterflies etc.)

Our Guest Designer this week is someone I bet a lot of you are familiar with ... it's Inger
If you haven't taken a look at Inger's blog ... I highly recommend that you click the link and pay a visit ... her shabby chic style is a joy to behold!

This week I made a bookmark instead of a card ... using up more scraps and some lovely bling from Charlene

I did a little embossing on the paper too ... 

Yep, there's that butterfly again!

Because I mostly do square cards using A4 sheets ... I always have strips of card stock left over ... If you fold these they make excellent Bookmarks which are really strong ...

Our team have come up with some pretty lovely examples for this challenge ... why not take a look?And for a chance to Guest Design with us at City Crafter all you have to do is follow the rules and link up with us this week ...

I'm so glad to be back with you ... Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow

Take care
