It's been a sunny start to the week here in Kent but the forecast is now for 2 weeks of rain! Hopefully there will be a respite on Sunday as we're having a barbeque to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday and we really don't have space in the house to accomodate the 10 adults and 9 children who are coming!
We had a lovely weekend. I took Thomas on a steam train ride on Saturday and he absolutely loved it. It was only a 15 minute ride with time for a cup of tea and a chocolate bar at the station before the return journey but it was lovely to ride in an old fashioned carriage with wood interiors and the old slam doors that you have to open from the outside! Yesterday was a more practical day with a trip to Ikea to buy bedroom furniture. I really enjoy puting flat-packed furniture together so I did the whole lot as soon as we got home and now Thomas has some great toy storage with funky green boxes and plenty of shelves for his books.
I started this card last Friday but then our cable service went down so we had no TV or internet for 12 hours!
It's taken me a long time to bring myself to cut into this gorgeous K & Co paper. I didn't want to hide it all so this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers is perfect. I used a piece of sheer fabric paper behind my image which is just about visible through all the embellishments! The two green flowers I made myself and the others are from Wild Orchid Crafts. It's my sisters birthday in a few weeks time so this will be perfect for her.
Have a good week, I'll have another card on Wednesday for a new Truly Scrumptious challenge.
