Sweet Sunday

I treated myself with a lie in this morning.  No alarm clock set - woo hoo.  When I did wake up Steve got me a bacon buttie.  A bit of a disappointment as I'd bought the more expensive thick cut bacon from Tesco's and it was thinner than normal bacon and just fell apart in the pan!  Ah well onwards and upwards.
I dropped Steve off at the cricket club and decided to venture out even though it was raining.  So today the adventure was around Daisy Nook Country Park.  I do feel lucky to have so many nice places not too far away.  Talking of luck, the rain stopped and the swans and geese were on the canal.

So only 8,000 steps today but as I had my ankle weights on it was a good work out.
So home to do some homework but first a couple cards.
This first one was inpired by challenges at:
2sketches 4 you - sketch challenge - although I was too late to upload it!
Allsorts Challenge - strawberries and cream
The red of the strawberries just led me to the bright colours and the gingham is just perfect for any summer picnic.

This second card went texture crazy with the dry embossing and the ruched gingham ribbon.  It was inspired by challenges at:
Meljen's Designs - dry embossing
Tuesday Taggers - touchy feely texture
Moxie Fab World - Tesday Trigger - for me it was the colours and ruffled edges of the flowers that triggered me.

So back to my homework, which I can't share with you just yet, but as soon as I can, I will.  Enjoy the last few hours of your weekend
