Back from the hammock............

 Yes I'm back from my Tuscan hideaway.....what an amazing holiday we enjoyed and yes seriously there was even a hammock to relax in and enjoy the views.....

 the countryside was just stunning.
I have 539 photos to sort through so you will be seeing some more posts very soon.

My card to share today is this had to feature a hammock didn't it. Also my niece had a sweet little baby girl...Edith Elizabeth be known as Edie whilst we were away. Many congratulations to her and her dear Hb.

I have made lots of baby's cards for Dotty's tea rooms.....and this cute Penny Black Stamp is so popular. As fast as I make one it sells....

My image is coloured with Promarkers and the daisies are Memory Box. The papers are ancient. The sentiments are Clearly Besotted.
