Lanterns

Well, I'm back from all my gallivanting. I spent a week in France with the Youth Orchestra (with 24 hours' notice!!), came back to do some frantic washing and sleeping, and then went to the Lleyn peninsula in Wales with the family for a week. Talk about contrasts in weather - France was boiling (I'm not much of a heat lover), whereas Wales was cold and wet. I've spent all of today washing and ironing, and getting my phone sorted out after 2 weeks of it being out of order.


Back to crafting with a smile. Here's a card I made for the Lots to do Challenge on the theme of Oriental, using a sketch from 2Peas. There should be brads on the ribbon but I felt they intruded. Note to self - buy more oriental stamps...
