A New House!

Hello to you All, I hope you are enjoying the sunny weather today, isn't it so changeable though, one day with downpours and the next, blazing sunshine and heat., It's really hot today here, but I think there could be thunder later on.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my last card, you are such an encouraging bunch of people, makes it all worth while.

Well my lovely Alistair is taking me away for a few days for my birthday which is next week, now wait for it folks... where could our destination be....Paris, Rome or even Venice, no it is romantic Falkirk!!!, what a come down from last years Iceland.  I had mentioned that I would love to see the Water Kelpies which are two huge horse head statues on the banks of the Forth and Clyde canal at Falkirk.  I'll take you there for your birthday, said DH, it quite turned my head, and then if that's not all there is The Falkirk Wheel, a great feat of engineering, so Alistair tells me. Anyway, we are booked into a hotel in Stirling which is near Falkirk, and there is lots to see there, like the castle, the Wallace Monument.  It should be a lovely few days and I hope we have decent weather.

My card today is one for my friend Karen and her family who are about to move house;
I've used one of the LC Dinkies stamps, I bought a few a wee while ago, I think they are great little stamps for when you want to make little cards.  This one is 5x5.
Embossalicious Embossing folder, shaded with Prismacolour Pencils.
Imaged coloured with Derwent Inkintense Pencils
Centura pearl card
LOTV Sentiment on Cor'dination card
Papermania gems
Frosted Lace Stickles

So we are off down the road tomorrow, so I'm away to have a think about what to take with me,  enjoy the remainder of your weekend and I'll see you soon,

Great card Kate, love the wee stamp and fab design.
You will have good fun on your break. We have not seen the Kelpies yet but John, Audrey and the boys have been and LOVED every minute of their day.
Our last night here will be glad to get home. I have really missed John, think with the weather not being so good has not helped.
Chat soon,
