Well the holiday is over!

Eric and I have enjoyed a lovely break in Anglesey over the last few days, we were really lucky with the weather with bright sunshine and warmth every day. The cottage we stayed in was about 20 feet, at most, from the waters edge when the tide was in, and every room had a window overlooking the sea. We came back feeling relaxed and refreshed yesterday, picked Meg up from respite this morning at 10 o'clock and by 11 0'clock there was music blaring all over the house, and toileting and personal care stuff to attend to, and it felt like we had never been away LOL!

When I got home yesterday, I found that the postman had delivered the latest issue of Complete Cardmaking, Magazine. The magazine comes with a free CD containing digi stamps, images and papers from various companies. This time around there are stamps from the Paper Nest Dolls, papers and toppers from Crafters Companion, a Sarah Paris Christmas kit (digi stamps and papers - which I was lucky enough to get to play with) and a couple of Daisy Trail kits for those of you who use Serif Craft Artist. 

Here's one of the cards I made for this issue.

Paper and digital stamps - Sarah Paris Digi-kit - Complete cardmaking issue 52 Free CD
Kraft Card - Anna Marie Designs
X-cut Large Palm punch - Holly Branch
Nellie Snellen Pine branch die
Spray Adhesive
Glamour Dust
Stick on pearls - Meiflower

I still have another eight cards made from this collection so I will be showing them over the coming weeks.

Thanks for visiting,
Colette xx

So glad you had a lovely time away... that cottage does sound like paradise being so close to the water's edge!

And what a fabulous card!! I haven't seen this issue yet, so will have to watch out for it..
