More food and more relaxing

I'm loving being on holiday and have relaxed into holiday mode very quickly.  We started the day with a walk (the boys took the bikes) and a swim (I managed 60 lengths this morning).

We popped out to Sharkey's at Venice for lunch, which meant a couple of cocktails too.  I was loving the Mango Bango and my Grouper with Macadamia crust topping with cocunet shrimp was totally yummy.

After walking along the pier we headed back via the supermarket.  I love that you can buy Beringer White Zinfandel in very large bottles!!
Now back to food again - tonight we had some of the fish the boys caught, we started with sea trout bites and then followed with mackerel (not oily like ours is) and shark with salad and rice.  Sorry about the half eaten plate of food photo but it was so good I nearly forgot to take the picture!

I even had time for some cardmaking today.  This first one was inspired by challenges at:
Crazy 4 Challenges - music - well as I have limited supplies I went for a song title and it's Let's Go Fly a Kite
Allsorts - paper piecing - look closely at the kite.
I used Kaisercraft Lush 6" x 6" paper pad and my Up, Up  & Away stamp set from Papertrey Ink

This next one was inspired by the challenge at:
Clean & Simple - Sketch #103
Saturday challenge - what are little girls made of
There's a mixture of Papertrey Ink stamps here - the swirl is from the Fancy Flourishes set and the text is from Up, Up  & Away and the paper is from the In Bloom paper pad - isn't it gorgeous.

Next up we have a card inspired by challenge at:
Get Sketchy - Sketch #51 and it's a fab sketch
The Pink Elephant - ribbon & sparkles
I think this card is my favourite from today's card making adventure. I used more of the lovely In Bloom paper pack from Papertrey Ink and the felt flowers are from Stamin' Up

Another sketch challenge inspired this card:
 Card Patterns - sketch 77
I'm not sure what I'm going to do when I run out of In Bloom paper!

One last one for tonight.  A little dinky card inspired by the challenges at:
Cupcake Craft - recipe - 2 papers, 2 flowers, 2 ribbons
The Crafty Pad - Glitz & Glitter

To get ready for our trip to the baseball tomorrow we watched some on TV tonight, as I was crafting I'm guessing I'll have very little idea of what's going on, but that's how things quite often are in my world anyway!!
