Morning everyone from a very 'cool' Wiltshire......hope you've all had a great Jubilee weekend so far.
Our few days have been quite busy, starting off with a lovely Craft Fair on Saturday.....I sold loads of cards and received lots of commissions to do, so a very happy 'me' drove home to start preparations for Jubilee Sunday.
We live in a very small village, and our 'Close' of 14 bungalows, is a sort of circle cum horseshoe shape with a lovely ornamental green in the middle, this is a great area for 'getting together' with the residents of 'the close'. The male contingent erected 3 huge marquees, while the females prepared enough food and drink to feed an army! We were outside from 12 midday until 3.30 am! (well, some were anyway) what a great day it was, despite the weather, which turned out quite wet....not under the marquee though, thankfully! It was so good to spend the day with friends, and especially our family Nick & Emma and Adam.
Last night was the lighting of the 'Beacon' in the village at 10pm......singing 'God save the Queen' with a glass of bubbly in my hand whilst the beacon was lit was quite 'uplifting' x
Anyway, although there are festivities in the village, we are just taking it easy today and I might even get time to craft!
The card below is the one I made for the COLOUR INSPIRATION challenge at http://cardsgalorechallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ Please pop over and have a look at the Design Team creations and enter the challenge. There is a great prize up for grabs this month.
