Hello bird card

Good afternoon friends, I am late making my
usual 'Less is More' card. We have been away
for a week in the Lake District. More about that 
later though....and photo's..... and 
celebrity spotting !

Come and see my card, more watercolouring
and a bit hurried but hope it's ok. It's a sketch 
this week, see it below my card.

I wish you all a good week....well what's left 
of it anyway!

We had a great time in the Lake District, 
the weather was so hot too, about 23c
every day.So lucky... here are a few photo's.
 We were there with my two BIL's and SIL's.
My SIL was just talking about Jerry Hall and
 Rupert Murdoch as we walked around Tarn
Hows and who should walk past us 5 mins
 later....yes THEM !!!
 We were quite gob smacked, they also
followed us to a pub later......maybe they
were stalking us lol! Anyway my SIL's
mouth wide open stare was a picture I can
 tell you.....she was the one who had been
talking about them...hope they didn't hear.

Next day we were in the hotel spa and who
should we find ourselves sitting next to in the
steam room but Dave, (Jools Holland's Bass
 player).The other guitar player was splashing
 a lot as he swam, front crawl...I got out!

 They had a gig later that night so they were
just relaxing. Lovely man and we had a great
 chat with him. We saw Ruby and the rest later
 too. The best laugh was someone from the hotel 
asked my BIL if he was Jools as they were
 looking for him. He doesn't look like him in
  the slightest!

 We wondered who we might meet next day,
I was hoping for George Clooney but no
didn't happen alas !!!
Anyway it was a lovely break away and now I
am knee deep in washing etc. Back down to
 earth ;)

You are the queen of the watercolour splash Viv. Terrific interpretation of the sketch and the bird is so cool! Your holiday sounds and looks fabulous. There'll be no talking to you now that you've rubbed shoulders with so many celebs in such a short space of time ;-)
Great to see you at Less is More again.
