Here be Dragons!

Hello Lovelies! How are you??? I have been a bad blogger this past week - I have been away with my girls on an action packed outdoor adventure holiday - it was a family active holiday run by PGL and we went to Caythorpe Court in Lincolnshire. It was such a good week - more of that later!!!

Over on the chocolatebaroque blog today we are sharing some more quick cards - these are mine.

I have used distress inks, distress pens, stencils and stamps from here be dragons stamp set.

In both cases the image was simply stamped and masked and thenthe background created.

After revealing the image again they we coloured with distress pens. 

So back to my holiday - it was so very much fun - we all had a wonderful time and have returned exhausted but very happy!

these pics are all from an activity called 'all aboard' - three people had to climb this pole with three platforms plus a top platform - then all three had to stand on the top. It was great fun!!! All excellent tests of my upper body strength! 

I hope to be back very soon and around to visit your blogs as soon as possible!!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx

  14. I am slowly getting to know you, my good friend. I've been blogging such a short time and sometimes don't quite catch on to what you are talking about, so let me say I am touched to know that you are raising these girls on your own. You are love them fiercely and it shows! I didn't know... Looks like you all had a lovely time climbing. I just love these simple cards, they do not look simple! Gorgeous! Hugs, Autumn
