Red Balloons

Hello there... How are you?

Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts following the loss of my friend Jeanie... I cried a million tears at the funeral and a few days later DH and I took a trip to Cornwall to visit our Cornish cousins. It couldn't have been better... The sea, the rugged coastline and the sheer unspoiled beauty of Cornwall together with the love and laughter has helped restore me and I'm feeling good.

We sailed to the Scilly Isles as guests of cousin Peter who is captain of the ship that transports around 490 people plus cargo to the Isles on a daily basis. Many of the passengers took along their dogs... Honestly I have never seen so many dogs together and on a ship!
It's not a cruise ship by any means and boy did I get seasick once we hit the Atlantic. It was all worth it though as St Mary's, where we docked, is beautiful. I don't have any photos to share yet, they're all on my husbands phone but I'll get around to downloading them sometime.
Suffice to say we crammed in a lot in 5 days and had a wonderful time with our family.

 I haven't had any time to craft since I got home but I do have a card to share that I made for a friend who celebrated his birthday at the end of May... His family threw a party for him in the garden - A small affair they said, just a few friends - There were 50 people! And it was freezing Lol!

 The balloons were done using Distress Oxides and the baby wipe technique on glossy photo paper
I know I've said it before but I do love the results you get doing this

I haven't had time to visit your blogs either but hope to rectify that soon and also check out the new challenges I like to play along with...

It's good to be back... 
Have a wonderful day and if you have any sunshine to spare could you please send it my way?

Till soon
