Magical Majorca

As promised I am back to share some photos of our recent trip to Majorca. I thought for my first post I would show you where we stayed. We were in a 3 bed apartment with a gorgeous rooftop terrace just off the Pine Walk in Puerto Pollensa. A most splendid place to stay. We had a large pool on site which the children loved. 
Our roof terrace had a 360o view and we felt that we were in the tree tops with the birds. 

There was welcome shade for our al fresco dining. 
Down at the pool there were also frog, fish and terrapin ponds, it was such fun seeing these lovely creatures. Daisy was fascinated. 

At dusk the view was so sky at night shepherd's delight.
We could see right through to the marina and the bay.
The ponds inspired to make the card below using distress inks and 2 of my lovley STAMPlorations stamps. I heat embossed the lovely butterfly stamps and coloured them with glitter green ink. I think this is such a lovely quote and yes I certainly enjoyed so many lovely moments on holiday with Daisy and Co. Special family times. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

 The alphabet challenge 1/3 Great outdoors
The butterfly challenge V I have gone for vertical pattern and vintage style
Crafty Catz 1/3 anything goes
As you like it 1/3 favourite type of embossing and why mine is always heat embossing as it gives a brilliant resist to all my inking.
CRAFT 1/2 summer
Time out 1/3 warm
Simon says stamp Wednesday bright and cheerful

It looks as though we are at the start of a 10 day heat wave here. The weather has been glorious and the temperatures are due to hit the 30s next week. Summer has definitely arrived.

I'm back on Monday with my weekly Visible Image inspiration. In the meantime have a fabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. I have been knee deep working (in a very nice way) on some magazine designs this week, so I have been rather absent in blog land. I will also share some more of our Majorcan holiday photos very soon.

Bye for now,
