Bees And Bunny


We had a short break in Rye over the weekend, (as H had an inset day yesterday and we went with our friends, who's son also had an inset day) to a caravan park - on Friday night we had ringside seats to a family feud (that was happening 2 caravans away from us), followed by a light show by the Police !!, - luckily the weather was nice and we went for fun days out, only really using the caravan park for sleeping - but will never go to another one again.

Today's card is for a friend of mine, who celebrates a special birthday next month and her favourite colour is 'Yellow',the image is a stamp, i seem to avoid using, but i don't know why !! Penny Black - 'Bees & Bunny / 2305H', the papers are an old pack of : Stampin Up - 'Tea Party', the sentiments are : LOTV - 'Tags', i really must looking at other blogs, as they always want me to buy more things :-), - this time it was the lovely Sue and she had used for the doily - Whimsy Stamps - 'Lace Doily Corner 1', the ribbon is from : The Ribbon Girls - '38mm Lemon Yellow/ Gold Glitter Organza', the bee is : Cheery Lynn - 'Tiny Things With Wings', the flowers are from stash and the leaves are : Sizzix - 'Flowers, Branches & Leaves Set', the pearls were from my stash.

Hi Sam, ♥love♥ your card - it's so sweet and lacy. You have such a knack of knowing how to embellish a card (something that I really struggle with!) and I just love the pearls and the bees.

It can be a little scary when you can't help but listen to others having a heated argument because you wonder how far it will go. Not really a pleasant way to spend an evening. When I used to camp with my husband (before my DD was born), we came across all sorts of people. One time, the caravan park was nearly empty but some retired people (aged 65+) arrived and just HAD to pitch their tent right next to ours (kind of like being in our personal space!). All I will say is that they had a LOT of noisy fun and every time they came out of their tent, I couldn't make eye contact with them - I was so embarrassed! I'll never know why they couldn't just pitch their tent somewhere else where they would have had more privacy!! Oh well!!

I have to agree with you about caravans/camping m'love - age had lead me to discover that I am too domesticated for going back to the wild, lol. Gorgeous PB card, that bunny is too adorable - your friend will be thrilled. Hugs xx
