Sentimental me!

I really don't seem to be able to get a grip of this blogging regularly lark do I? Where does the time go? I honestly feel like it is just a few days since I was here but no it is weeks!

In my defense I have been a little holiday to Wales which was really nice. We had a day in Chester and then three days in Holyhead and a day at Middlewich. The weather was a little damp, ha there's a surprise eh? lol but apart from not being able to go on the motorbike it didn't make a huge difference.

Then I had a daft accident with my horse, after I got my wedding ring caught on a clench on her shoe, right as she stamped her foot down!!! I was hugely fortunate that she didn't put her whole weight on the foot and she grabbed it back up as I screamed at her. Unfortunately my ring finger and index finger got a bit squished and my wedding ring had to be cut off. It is at the jewellers now and they are doing their best to mend it but it is well mangled :-(

I also have hubby home for an extra week so crafting time is very limited. I have managed to grab a day to come to my mum's today which is nice to catch up with our girly gossip and card making.

I have made this card for SIL for her wedding anniversary and I am entering it into the MAWTT challenge 'Sentimental' which finishes usual I am last minute lol.

The paper is Papermania 'Lucy Cromwell' designs. The stamps are: Papermania Urban stamp 'Beautiful Folium' and two stamps from The unmounted stamp company. The butterfly is a die from Cheery Lynn.
