I've still got a few tiny envelopes from a box of cards I had, so thought I'd use one for this plain(ish) design, the style is nodding towards invitations, going to play around in CAP when I get the time and see if I get come up with something...

Eat, Pray, Love

by Elizabeth Gilbert.

I came to this book late, the film was already out and causing a stir - I picked the book up from a charity shop, luckily it was the original book and not the book of the movie (whether its any different I don't know). I just about sat through it one emotional rollercoaster session, couldn't put it down. Since then Elizabeth Gilbert  has written "Committed" sort of a 'what happened next' to her life story and well....... no.... no  spoilers, and I recently found "Eat, Pray, Love in Rome" by Luca Spaghetti (yes, that really is his name!) one of the main characters telling his life story.

And then there's the movie, settle down with a nice chilled bottle of wine and a box of chocolates, and then let the story envelop you -  better than a spa treatment!

guess you can tell I love it?? lol.

Flippin' football

I've had this La Pashe flippin' decoupage footballer image for years, so when I saw the new challenge on the cardz4guyz blog. I thought I'd use the front half of it.

Father's Day

Went to Elscar Heritage centre yesterday, had a lovely wander round the huge antique centre, and had a quick look in the craft shop - spotted a design pack which was perfect for 2 challenge cards.

This is for dad, I can remember us having a lawn mower like that one! Many many moons ago. And the jacket reminds me of Monty Don - only thing missing is Nigel.

you know you're getting old when you get asked which is YOUR Gardeners World presenter - rather than which was YOUR Doctor (Who).
