Back & Busy


Yes I've returned from my holiday in France. We were in a heavenly, bucolic part of the country, staying in a beautiful gite. The weather was gorgeous and most days were hot (I confess to not realising how sunny on the first day when I sat out and became engrossed in the book I was reading and came inside glowing red with sunburn). So I'm fully chilled, relaxed and trying to get my head back into the real world.

I haven't had a lot of time spare time to begin crafting again after my break but I was determined to make a start. So having visited the Play Date Cafe blog, I whipped up this ten minute quickie card. Well, they don't dictate how long you should take making your project, only that it contains the relevant colours haha.

The design team for the PDCC was commenting on how we missed you playing just last week...how I envy the opportunity to live so close to France : ( My dream is to go to Provence...no, it's to LIVE in Provence (Peter Mayle is my hero) :)

So great to see you again and hope to hear more about your fab getaway!

Oh! The card...lovely as always!
