Happy Monday

Hello friends...
I'm back from our break in a wet and very windy Majorca...In all the years I have been visiting there, I have never seen waves so high on the beautiful turquoise sea. Being used to rain it didn't stop us getting out and about and we did a lot of walking. We went to the lovely Andraxt market which is usually bustling, but as expected, a lot of the stall holders had given up. From there we took a bus to Palma and walked around the city sheltering every now and then from the hailstones and rain, the normal street cafes abandoned as thunder boomed above. Then it was on to Santa Ponsa and back to the hotel. 
Each day was much the same and once or twice the sun peeked out, lovely warm rays, but the wind was prevalent. I never got to feel the sand between my toes or the sea wash over me but I did enjoy the lovely meals served in the hotel and snuggling down with a good book. I did have a fall one evening but I was more shaken than injured - As my consultant said, I have very tough bones Lol!

Some weeks ago I bought a few alcohol inks and couldn't wait to give them a go but I just left the pieces I did till I had some inspiration as to what to do with them. Today I pulled out some dies and used one of my pieces for this card

 It's for my friend's birthday

Over the weeks I've also added a few new dies to my stash, the corner die and the flower/fronds die being 2 of them

I like that the flower die can be used upside down as I have done here so it looks like it's trailing over a trellis

Well, the cupboards are bare so I have to go grocery shopping ... I'll wish you all a lovely day and catch up with you soon
