Happy Handfasting

Hi there everyone!

So this Bank Holiday weekend gave me the chance to escape a bit for a few days which is lovely.

First stop we had the pleasure of going to a pirate-themed handfasting on Sunday which was brilliant! This was down in Avebury, Wiltshire where we joined close friends and the lovely couple. Here is a photo of me with good friend Noelle (I'm on the right):

This was the card I made based on thank you notes made by the lovely Cate Terry of Blue Angel Crafts :

Not the best picture in the world (I'm still half asleep I think!) but you can probably see that I stupidly managed to smudge the black ink, then promptly forgot to take a picture of the second (non-smudged) card I made. But you get the idea! C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S Jax and Mark! xxxx
I used Marina Mist and Pear Pizzaz colours which I think complemented each other perfectly, set off with some Crumbcake (one of my faves). I used the "Just Believe" stamp set to stamp the leaves.
Next stop on the road trip was a visit to Bridgwater to visit Mr Crafty Hippy's family. We were spoilt rotten and soon it was time to move on to Glastonbury to visit some friends who were also camping in the area. It was so lovely to catch up with them, I hadn't seen them in years yet it felt like only yesterday.
I think next year is going to spent mainly camping, based on the wonderful trips we've had this year. Let's hope the weather is better next year!!
