What, no image!


Good evening lovely people and what a fabulous sunny day it has been here today. Yes here I am in case you thought I wasn't posting today. I don't think I have missed a day this year yet and don't intend to unless I can't help it. Actually the second post yesterday was meant to be today's post but I was so busy adding Dt cards to admin blogs that I forgot to schedule it and after merrily linking it to challenges thought, oops that was meant to be today's which I would have linked this morning using the iPad.  We have had a lovely day out at Southwold, went for a really long walk near the beach and by the harbour and finished it with a late lunch. I had a prawn and crayfish tail salad and it was so yummy. For those of you who don't know Southwold it's a lovely old fashioned seaside, quite gentile with lots of beach huts which cost a fortune. It was used as the town East Lee in this week's drama A Mother's Son.

Any better get onto my card, which is a bit different for me and was one of the cards I taught my non cardmaking friend this week at her monthly class with me. This was the 3rd lesson and we haven't tried colouring, not sure if we ever will as she doesn't like cute images.

Hi Marianne. Sounds like you had a good day out. Your card is really pretty. Love the colours and just shows that you don't always need to have a coloured image.
