Hi Everyone,I'm back, I'll try not to bore you with Holiday pictures though!!
Yes We have been away cruising the Med , a special Holiday for us with our silver wedding in mind, even though we don't celebrate it until the 18Th of May, couldn't go then as our son has his Sat's and we weren't allowed to take him out of school then.
We had a reasonable time, though it never entered my mind that I would suffer from motion sickness, so that was a bit of a shock the plus side of it is that I have lost 3 lbs I usually put on at least half a stone when away, so that's a bonus.
I didn't do any blogging on board ship as it was a ridiculous price (50p a minute) and I just felt they were being greedy so I went without for a whole fortnight, I was lucky enough to meet up with a very special Lady who I follow that lives in Gibraltar,
I will tell you more about that another day.
I think this is one of the quickest cards I have ever done, its very simple as you can see hope you like, I know its a bit boring but just wanted to say hello.
back soon .
lots of love Chris xx
I'm still going along with my song titles as my titles,
and yes this ones by Jason Mraz, I adore his music.

Life is just a bowl of cherries.

This card has been hidden away, thought I would bring it out for an airing!
the image is Penny Black
the swirls and tab are done on the cricut using wild card, and the papers I have just cut round to do a thingy with!!!! (its Late and I have man flu even though I'm a woman I'm trying to get out of cleaning our Bearded Dragons cage out!
no seriously I do feel really grot.) I can't remember what they are maybe someone out there will let me know.
if you look closely at the tab on the side you can see stitch marks this is off wild card and I love it.
The cherries I have done 3 time with glossy accents its built them right up.
Also just to let you know that a Dear Friend of mine Jo has just started a new blog it is called MANGO PANCAKES
and believe me she is good keep your eye on what she's up to because her work is very original.
