Up, up and away

Well folks I'm currently drinking coffee in 78 degree heat in sunny California and I'm loving it, especially as I know it's raining back home (sorry).

Just been taking it easy and chilling the last few days but we did go for a gorgeous lunch at a local Mexican restaurant yesterday as it was Daddy Dave's 70th birthday and I had a proper Margarita.. They always taste so much better here than they do back home. Done a little bit of shopping and spent a few hours speaking with the neighbours too. Funniest one was Amy who is from Taiwan and she was so excited to speak to a scottish person in the flesh.. Apparently she fell in love with the accent when she watched Andy Murray playing in the olympics. She's so lovely and even brought her dog Roxy over for a visit.. Really need to get a pic of her as she's an unusual breed of dog.

Today, we're off to South Coast Plaza as it's seemingly expanded a huge amount since our last visit so the credit card could well take a bashing. Lol. Rob's also getting geared up for a weekend on the shooting range with his Dad so I'm going to be spending time with Ruth (step mother in law) so not sure what we'll get up to.

Anyway, here's my blog card of the day. One of the samples I made for last weekends trade show where I was working with Jones Crafts of Nottingham. This one is made using papers from the Periwinkle range (due to be released) which I coloured slightly with some distress inks and combined it with one of the wooden balloon embellishments. I added a Bon Voyage sentiment as I thought it could be used for retirement, leaving for a new job, emigration etc.

Well, it's just after 9am here so going to finish my coffee then get organised for my shopping spree so will sign off just now and hope you all have a fab day. I'll post again tomorrow so be sure to check back for another reveal as a lot of the stuff I've used are new releases and it will give you a chance to see them then ask your local craft store to stock them. Right I'm off now, catch you again soon.

Love 'n' hugs
