Hope

edited new photo not so much yellow now

Oh dear I had to take the photo with the electric light on, will have to take a new pic when its the day lighters up. I'm quite please how this turned out since I haven't made a card for several days and previously Mr Mojo had left.
But I decided to use the latest sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and just go with using all the things I love, well the MFT crochet border. The papers are Kaiser not sure which one down to few pages left and I also used Kraft card. The swirl is also MFT and the flowers out of stash.
The image is from Sylvia Zet called Hope.
We had a fabulous New Year in Bath although the weather could have been better and I wouldn't recommend the Hilton Hotel, strange but my Sister and I have been to a few due to Scrapbooking retreats admittedly not since 2008 and they were fabulous.
For example we had to upgrade cos there was no basic rooms but what they meant as a upgrade was a larger bed in basic room well I've seen larger rooms in a budget hotels and the quilt fitted from one edge to the other with no run off if you know what I mean. Wasn't impressed when hubby woke me up in middle of night asking where was the quilt I told him to crawl to the middle he may find it.
I'm also thankful that we are early risers cos I wouldn't have like to queue for 20 minutes plus for what is a buffet breakfast! But at the end of the day you have to make the best you can there were a few other things that only confirmed we won't be going there next year.
