 Good Evening!
Sorry I haven't been in blogland the past few days.
We went away for the weekend to Hastings. We couldn't have picked a better weekend,the weather was absolutely glorious :)
I even managed to pop to The Glitter Pot on the way and ofcourse had to buy some crafty stash. I love shopping with them online as their service is fantastic so it was really nice to visit the actual shop and drool over all the yummy goodies they sell.Once I've had a play with my new stash I will share some cards :)

Now if going away and having glorious weather and visiting one of my fave craft shops wasn't enough. We stopped off at Brighton as it was on the way and spent the day on the beach only to be joined by Alan Carr and Jonathon Ross with a film crew lol

Anyway here's my card using some of my lovely new Wellington goodies which I managed to have a play with before we went away...

Products used; Wellington A4 Ultimate collection pack from Docrafts, Ribbon from stash,Papermania star brads and Tim holtz ditress ink pad.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges...

Thanks for stopping by
I will leave you with a pic of me with my baby enjoying the beautiful weather :)
