Stuck on you.

Hello Girls, Sorry I haven't been to visit you this last few days, on my way now!!
I have just got back form a trip around Yorkshire, we have been to Leeds Armories, which made me yawn a bit but the boys liked it, so that's all that mattered, then we went on to Whitby and Robin hoods Bay, now there my mouth stayed closed, I didn't yawn once it was great.

I am in love with this camper van stamp, hope you like it too, I just cant stop using it, and this Christmas its going have Fairy lights on it, well why not! I know its a bit on the Bright side, but occasionally I am Bright!! Honest!
back soon love Chris xx

Oh wow Chris. I'm lovin' it. What an iconic van. Great retro feel. Love the colours you've chosen. Love that stamp, saw a set in Hobbycraft with a camper van on which I am tempted to get,don't know if it's the same one.

Can you imagine going round the little seaside towns in a camper like this??mmmm .. heaven.

Hi Chris - So pleased to hear that you have been up to my neck of the woods (Leeds) but I have to agree - the Armouries leave me cold. As for Whitby and the East Coast, we have had so many happy times there over tons of years - we love it!! Your card is fabulous - love the camper van and the fab. colouring. It would look amazing with Xmas lights too!!!

Hi Chris, love the card, so hippy (flowerpower and all that) reminds me of my youth - showing my age now lol! Glad you had a good time in Yorkshire, Whitby is a favourite of ours and Robin Hoods Bay, very steep down to the sea but wonderful views and plenty of teashops on the way back up to have a breather!

Wow! What a totally gorgeous card! Love the colour combo! I know quite a few people who would love that!

Tracy said...

First of all missy, why didn't you pop in for a cuppa, I live 10/15 minutes from The Royal Armouries, just think you wouldn't have had to walk round yawning, you could have come and plyed and done some crafting instead Lol!
Love that camper van, I could just climb in and drive away. Gorgeous colours and can't wait to see it with xmas lights.
Happy crafting

Lesley said...

brilliant card love the camper van - whose stamp is it? I've always wanted to go to the Amouries at Leeds - still yet to get there but one day - looking forward to seeing you all in Oct best wishes Lesley x

lisa said...

Well, I shall echo so many others, Chris you could hve stopped by here for a cuppa while the boys did the Armouries!! You'll laugh at this but that was the where my DH took me on our very first date!!!! Not sure what that says, I'll leave it to your own interpretation. We have been to much more interesting places since. I think it was probably because it was free!!
Glad you enjoyed the coast though. It's beautiful isn't it.
Your camp van is just brill, the bright colours make it. I think it'll make a fantastic Christmas card with fairy lights!!
Hugs Lisax
