Love Grows here card

Hi there friends, sorry I have been missing for a while! I have just caught up on my commenting today at last. We went for a little holiday to the Lake District last week, it was my OH's 70th birthday and we celebrated with family and friends. More celebrations to come yet too...lucky OH eh :)

We managed to get together with 17 of our very oldest friends we haven't seen for ages and it was fabulous ! the weather was glorious too so we had a great time. We stayed with relatives at a lovely hotel in the Lake District.
Anyway that's why I have been absent, I will post some pics of the scenery in a separate post (I realised there were so many lol) if you are nosey. If you haven't been there before it's well worth a visit! We both come from near there originally so visit it often but we still just love it.

So much to catch up on now...and we are trying to design our new kitchen too...well I am lol. I have been like a whirling dervish since we got back. I did all the Summer bedding planting today, did some baking (coconut,banana,choc chip, walnut muffins...yum!) and have now cleaned most of the house and caught up with piles of washing/ironing....so much to do yet still...yikes!

Right ...sorry about all the rambling !...here is my card for the latest 'Less is More' challenge which is 'CAS Embossing' this time, come and have a quick peek ;)

Such a beautifully made and designed card Viv, you always make such gorgeous CAS cards.
We haven't been to the Lake District, one of our must see places. Good to hear you had a good time, shame to come back to so much work LOL. Isn't it always the same?
