I'm back!!

I'm back!! I have been away in my Romahome, had a lovely time, weather dry but cold, but lots of good company and loads of laughs.  Then I went and visited my daughter and granddaughter and had a super time, the weather was gorgeous, those two hot days we had last week.  (Hope that wasn't our summer) We explored Oxford, its a very interesting town and I cant wait to explore more of it. Later we played with the sand and water in the garden with Elsie.  I bought her a doll's pram and she loved it.  She is such a lovely little girl and quite the little Mother looking after her dolly.  Cant wait to see her again.  The rest of the time I have been catching up on things, but I'm back crafting now.  I sent Beth a Thank You card for the lovely  time I had and the presents she bought me.  After Christmas I discovered I had no Thank You cards to send people so I set to and made ten so I now have a stash of them.  I had great fun making them.  I used the triple layer technique and was able to use lots of stamps I haven't used before or not used often.  Here is the one I sent to Beth.

I like this technique because it is simple and quite quick and you can produce some lovely cards. The stamps I used were Everything Eleanor from Stampin' Up.
I was very pleased to discover just before I went away that I had achieved Top Three in the Make My Monday One Layer Challenge with my Little Bit of Sunshine.  I was thrilled and it was lovely to go away on a high.  Made my day.
 I have missed some lovely challenges whilst I have been away, some I would really have loved to have a go at, but never mind, perhaps I'll try the ideas sometime.  Yesterday I made two cards, one for the Colours and Sketches challenge and one for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown..
