What a weekend!

We had a fabulous time at the cheese festival but all that cheese leaves you with a cracking hangover!  OK, that could have been the copious amounts of local cider that I had!  The weather couldn't have been more perfect and there was a great group of us, in the fabulous setting of Cardiff Castle.  Role call from left to right, Stevie, JP, Emma, Neil, Denise, Ian, Debs, Rob and me.

Here's Jo & Ian with the biggest cheeseboard I've ever seen.

We went a did a masterclass where we got to mix and match different cheeses with different drinks.  It was worth going to just to discover Marks & Spencer Pink Port!

We found some people playing conkers and they very kindly let us join in.

There was so much more, as we went to Cardiff Bay after the festival.  But as it was rather alcohol charged I'm not sure some of those photos are for sharing!  I can tell you that there were cocktails, a gay stag do (good luck Christine and Linda), a meeting with some people from Essex, much dancing before an adventure to get back to Tonypandy!

We made it back home today via one of my customers and our local Italian restaurant.  As I've not crafted for a few days I felt the need to make a couple of cards before I went to bed.  I'm loving white on white just now.
This one was inspired by challenges at:
Chicken soup - recipe #13
Colour create - all white
Charisma cardz - anything goes

Supplies used:
Swiss dots embossing folder
Cuttlebug butterfly die and embossing folder
Stamps - everyday button bits from PTI

This one was inspired by challenges at:
Allsorts - plain & simple

Supplies used:
Sizzix embossing folder
Stampin' up butterfly punch
Stamp - giga guide lines by PTI

Hopefully my hangover will be completely gone by tomorrow and my body will no longer ache.  I'm definitely getting too old for a big party night!
