My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

17 August 2012

Happy Days!

Good morning, well I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but guess what!? It's pouring with rain here again today :O( - it's really starting to get me down!  My Daughter Megs is on her way to Cornwall for the week with her Dad and my parents go away to the Isle of Wight for a week tomorrow, so I really hope the weather improves for them all.

And talking of holidays, at last we have finally booked something!  Unfortunately Mark couldn't get any time off work whilst I am off during the summer holidays, so we are now going away at half term in October, down to Falmouth for 6 days which will be lovely.  To be honest I don't even care if the weather is rubbish as I just want to get away by the sea and of course Cornwall is my favourite place, so it should be lovely.

So onto today's card:

  1. We have only had a couple of showers this week, been rather humid some of the time though. Gorgeous card, love the soft colours.

  2. This is so pretty Claire, sweet image and lovely papers.
    Cornwall can be lovely in October and it's usually drier in the Autumn than in the summer, just not quite hot enough for sunbathing - I'm sure you will have a lovely time.
