a Tilda and some photos as promised...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend...well we went for a drive yesterday back to the beach to see if I could get some photos to show you and all I managed was one with the church spire as it was so windy and cloudy, so we drove a few more miles to another beach and got the other photo, what look like streaks on the sand is actually the wind whipping the sand across the beach, Phil said he didn't want to stay as the car didn't really need paint stripped lol...it was so so windy but at least it kept the clouds moving fast so I even managed to catch the beach in sunshine too...well before the next rain hit anyway...then we went to the top of a mountain to have a look at the view and go for a walk but couldn't stand up in the wind and decided as we didn't have our hang gliding equipment (yeah right) with us we wouldn't bother...right my card for today is another try to rediscover my colouring mojo...nope still missing...you know when something isn't right don't you...the papers are a mix from different pads and I added some brown lace and a lush gold ribbon to finish...I didn't make this for any challenge...now don't all faint lol


Isn't it amazing this stunning beach is just a few miles from where we live


Isn't this view just amazing...well today I'm going to lock myself in my craftroom and stay there until my mojo is found so if you don't hear from me in a while send the mojo police around...whatever your up to today have a fab day and I hope the sun reaches you wherever you are

Oh! Mina, Thank you so much for sharing your photos of beautiful Ireland, One day I'm coming to see this fabulous place:0)
Your card is really fantastic, I understand you want it to be perfect but you're really hard on yourself, it is gorgeous! The only thing I would say is that she looks like she might need a tweezer job on her leg, sorry, I'm wincing now:{
Have a wonderful day, hugs :0) xxx
