Fishbourne, via Chichester Marina to West Wittering

Friday, 30 March 2012

Well I managed to get the camera and here are a few shots of our bike ride last Sunday. I love the area around Chichester Marina. It's so pretty with the lock and views out to Chichester Harbour. So peaceful and relaxing. If you're ever in the area it's well worth a visit.

The bottom photo was taken on West Wittering beach with views across to the Isle of Wight.

Congratulations Tina

Thursday, 29 March 2012

My friend Tina has just qualified as Cabin Crew for Virgin Atlantic. She was so excited when she got the job and even more excited when she qualified. I couldn't resist making this card for her, even though the shoes need to be higher :) The destinations across the top, are where she will be flying during her first month. How fantastic. Congratulations Tina and enjoy your travels.

Congrats Tina

It's Mothers Day here in the UK on 18th March, so create a card for your Mum plus add some stitching. This could be real, faux, rub-ons, etc whatever takes your fancy. I know it's not Mothers Day on that date in other countries, but at least you'll have your card made in plenty of time :)

I've included a bit of real and faux on my card. Pop on over to see the other great creations this week , plus I look forward to seeing your Mothers Day cards. Have fun.
