I'm back

Yes I'm back and two of my favourite challenge blogs have stunning challenges. A spoonful of Sugar is for butterflies which means I can use my first ever stamp I brought. I love this stamp I've used it so many times and usually with parchment paper and a brilliance white inkpad, I embossed the white lines from the back to give them more depth but true to form the camera doesn't show it up that well. Cute Card Thursday wanted a quote somewhere on your card, the one I've used is a Penny Black and a neglected Sarah Kay image, the papers are Bo Bunny, now that I've used the ribbon, I'm not sure I like it but its stuck now.

We had a fabulous time in Tossa de Mar, the weather was lovely and hot and the festival for Fishermen went ahead so hubby got his sardines on the beach. We brought some raffle tickets, the prizes were a meal in one of the various restaurants who had donated a prize and we won. The restaurant we won at was Casa Andreas which is run by the father of model whose dating a rather famous singer. They also make the best Champagne Sangria in Tossa but back to the winning ticket we gave it to our friend Feliu who was over the moon.
Remember I was taking a cross stitch kit to do while there, next time I'm taking a packet of needles cos you can't sew without a needle, it must have dropped out when I swopped the aida inside the kit for larger piece.
