I'm back!

Afternoon all, wow I can't believe it's been nigh on 3 weeks since I blogged but this is the first free weekend we have had for about 5 weeks!
 Our Rock choir concert was a great success and we even had an encore:) We are on a break now and will be back singing in September.
We have been so lucky with the weather it was amazing down in Devon and of course ate and drank too much! Last weekend we were back down in Portsmouth again with great weather for picnics and bbq's:)
Anyway back to crafting of which I haven't done a lot and only have one project to show you which is a thank you box card that I made to send to our friends in Brixham, come and see:

I used Craftwork cards Harbour paper pad to cover the box and cut out some of the elements for the pop up effect. Had to use this pad it's so beautiful and of course it was off to Brixham:)

The only other thing I've been doing is a couple of scrapbook pages with photos of who else but Charlie:

I hope to be back with a card for this week's Less is More challenge and next Saturday we have another wedding and I have a card to show you then:)

Once again I'm sorry for my lack of commenting but I have been checking out your blogs and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!!!

Great box card Val, and perfect to send to Brixham! The two scrapbook pages of Charlie are lovely; love the first one which picks up on his t-shirt colours. Give Kate our love for next Saturday.

Great to see you back, Val! I think everyone is in the same way over the summer with lots of fun outside activities to pull us away from our bloggy world. No need to apologize!

I'm so glad to hear that your choir was a huge success and that you've had lovely weather!!

Your popup thank you card and your two layouts of Charlie are just delightful!! You carry on and have fun and don't worry about commenting while you're at it!! Hugs, Darnell
