We're Back Home

Hello friends, I'm sorry for my absence. I had hoped to do a little more blogging while we were away but time and circumstance were just not on my side. Hubby had to work from the hotel room while we were in Wales and therefore our internet connection was prioritised for him and I had to grab it here and there when I could. In the end it was just easier to leave it till we got back.

So here I am back in the comfort of my craft room. My kids went back to school today but I haven't gotten to craft just yet. I feel a little weird it has been so long. Hopefully my mojo won't hide for long. In the meantime I thought I would show you a card I managed to get made before we left. It was for a swap on my friend Joani's group Cards Made By Hand. The theme was Farmyard so I inked up my new Rachelle Anne Miller sheep stamp.

Cardstock is espresso and old olive, The DP is Heidi Grace and I used my cuttlebug. Pretty simple card but stands out thanks to dimensionals.

For the kids I'm sure the trip was the best holiday ever as they got to spend lots of time with their grandparents and I got to catch up with old friends which was really cool. The ultimate treat was a day at Legoland Windsor which was loads of fun. They weren't kidding when they said almost everything is made of Lego. It was a great day.
There will be plenty more pictures from Legoland on the family blog when I get around to getting that up to date too. I wrote most everything down in a notebook to remind me what happened so I could write it up later.

Yay Im glad you had a good time! Love the card..the sheep are sooo cute!

We went to Logoland in California and dang I couldnt believe everything they had there that was made out of legos..did they have an entire city made out of legos at that one? it was amazing to see.
