Home sweet home!


We are just back from a few days in Scotland for half term - it was great to have a break and spend time with the boys.  We have been to St Andrews before and love it around that area as there is lots to see and do including walking along the amazing beach at Tentsmuir and going to visit the pandas at Edinburgh zoo.  The little fishing villages along the east coast are beautiful and we stayed in a cosy cottage in Anstruther.  I will share a few photos later....

However, it is always nice to be home - particularly when there is crafting to be done :)

I got a set of Dear Lizzy journaling cards on sale at Hobbycraft and thought that they would be useful as stencils.  However, with this one I coloured a sheet of vellum in a rainbow of colours behind the sentiment and coloured/glittered a number of Studio Calico wood veneer stars as an embellishment.  No stamps at all on this one!!
I will join up with the current challenge at Addicted to CAS to add texture.  There are some gorgeous cards in the gallery there.... I will also link up with Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge.
I'm off to play in my craft room so hopefully I will have more to share soon :)
Thanks for your visit!
