An Eggnog


We were away last week for half term in Dubrovnik, Croatia and it was superb and so worth the 3 year wait !!, anyway here are a couple of photos :

We took a cable car to get to the top of Mount Srdj, it was 4pm, hence the blanket round me and please note, no cake for me, as they didn't do a dairy free one

H on the boat on our way over to Lokrum

Us doing the city wall walk and we are about 100 feet above the city

Today's card is using a stamp i bought in a sale : Penny Black - 'An Eggnog / 4005H', the papers are: Echo Park - 'Season's Greetings', the holly die is : Marianne D - 'LR0244', the corner holly die is : Cottage Cutz -'Elegant Holly Corner' and they have both been decorated with : Papermania - 'Adhesive Shimmer Stones' and Stampendous Frantage - 'Chunky White', the ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Christmas Tags'
