We're back from a week in Northumberland with my folks - the weather wasn't too bad and we were able to get out and about for at least part of every day. It's just lovely to spend time in my "home" village with my Aunt and Uncle really - that it's less than a five minute walk to the prom from their house is a bonus!
The photos haven't even been put onto the pc yet so if you want to see where I was, scroll down a couple of posts to Friday's Daring Cardmakers "Wish You Were Here?" challenge and there's a photo of the bay there!
The excitement I had while I was away was hearing that the latest issue of "Simply Cards and Papercraft" magazine was out along with it's "Best of British supplement - exciting because the card I made using Funky Hand products is in there - and it's on the cover too.
The card template and all papers are by Funky Hand and the instructions on how I made it are in the magazine
As my Aunt always comes to visit armed with boxes of home-made goodies, we decided to do a bit of baking ourselves so we could return the favour. We made another batch of those wonderful Rhubarb and Custard Cupcakes and also tried out a new recipe for Chocolate Chip Woopie Pies. Sorry about this rubbish photo but you'll get the idea, I'm sure!
Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of crafting, blogging and blog-hopping soon, but now I must get back into "cooking dinner" routine - I'd forgotten that food wasn't just going to appear in front of me courtesy of Aunt and Uncle or via a waiter/waitress today. Oh the shock of being home!
Thanks for visiting
