New challenge over at 'The Crazy Challenge' ....

Just a quicky about our weekend away, it was fantastic, we had such a good time, we popped over to Angelsey & saw the Hunter Hawks at the RAf base taking off & landing.They came in right over our heads, I have never felt the earth move quite like it lol.....Whilst we were ther we went to South Stack to look at the birds & we saw some Puffins how cute? They are gorgeous Nige managed to get a few pics of them so I will post when I can get his camera off him lol...I hope you all had a fab weekend, in this gorgeous weather..where's it gone now tho xx

My second card for today, is for the weekly challenge over at 'The Crazy Challenge' where this week Nana has picked 'Distress it!' as the theme. Well I don't do alot of distressing, other than to take away the glare of white paper on a coloured paper...so this was a blog hopping adventure for me lol....I will just say I found some just wonderful blogs out there, some simply stunning work...

Our sponsor this week is Hobbisimo

Before I show you my card for this week, I just want to say thank you to everyone who joined in with our 'black, white & pink' challenge last week, WOW!!! they were stunning xx

 After my blog hopping, I decided to try a bit of ripping then using inks love it..got really messy but had loadsa fun, will be doing this lots..lol
