a view to die for...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a fantastic weekend...we are heading for Glenveagh National Park today so I hope the weather holds up and it doesn't pour down...its a stunning place and there is a view across a lough which would be right out of a scene from Harry Potter, I am taking my camera so will try my best to get some amazing view photos...photos never really do it justice at all...their website is badly inadequate but here's a link to some photos to make you drool...the gardens are incredible too and the castle is stunning to walk through and it has been a wonderful home through the years to some very lucky people...right now onto my card for today which is using this new digi from Crafts and Me, shes from Hannah Lynn and is called Chelsea...fabulous hair hasn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and matched her up with these lush papers from the My Mind's Eye - A Happy Heart 6x6 Pad, this colour pad colour combo shouldn't work but it really really does...I finished with a lush grey organza ribbon and bow and a beautiful glittered Prima rose...the fab sketch is from the Papertake Weekly challenge...I will be back tomorrow with a little touch of Mo...whatever your up to today I hope you have a fabulous time and it stays dry for you

Beautiful card! Hope the weather smartens up a bit for you ... we went to Glenveagh a couple of years ago, stunning place, but definitely not a good idea to do that long walk down to the Castle in blistering sunshine and flip flops!
