Lovely Heart


A couple of weeks ago, while Harrison was at Scout camp, Alan, Clio and I took full advantage of it and went to 'Fort Nelson' in Fareham for the 'Wave Of Poppies'

Today's stamp was purchased at a craft sale I went to recently and this is an old Penny Black, that I fell in love with and the card was made to participate in Faye's 5 Pen Copic Challenge - 
V15, V01, C3, YG01, YG17, and is for one of the ladies who works in reception, at Harrison's school (he leaves in July, so Alan and I wanted to acknowledge some of the backstage people who have supported us)

Bearing Flowers


Gee what a scorcher of a weekend, I hope you all enjoyed it - Alan and I had an amazing time on Saturday night, when we went to see Kerry Ellis, who is simply an amazing singer and the added bonus was that Brian May of Queen was in the audience and joined Kerry for the final song, which for a small town where I live was simply WOW.

I made today's card for the receptionist at Harrison's school, who is leaving later on this month and she has been really helpful and understanding, with us living 30 mins away from the school.
