Carpay Deeum - Bright on !

Happy Monday!
Thanks for popping in!
It’s a beautiful sunny day, and we’re on our way out to Brighton as soon as Gracie gets back from the hairdressers!
She’ll only let my friend Carron near it, so by the time she gets home twice or thrice a year - she NEEDS a trim !!!

In the meantime, Mark is out for the count upstairs. The Jetlag hits you hard when you come east from California.

The fires are pretty shocking, aren’t they. 
So sad and sorry for the victims who have lost their homes, 
families - and lives.
Here we are partying and eating roast lamb, 
and there they are, in an inferno.
Terrible.
Mark lives south of the hotspot, in Oakland,
but friends and family have already been evacuated from Green Valley. Mark said the smell of smoke all around the bay when we left last Thursday was extreme. 

So tomorrow both Grace and Mark fly away again.
She to New York.
He to San Francisco.

I thought I would make a quick card to celebrate today with you though. Quick being the operative word!

Stamped out my two favourite stamps in the world
(I wonder why...)
on a lovely new Designer Paper leaf which is being launched by myself on HOCHANDA in a fortnight, on Sunday 29th October, 
the week before the NEC.

Stamp




Trim and outline.


Mount on a white fold card.


Done.
See the wise old finger pointing the way?


I cannot wait to present these new papers and parchment papers to you. Look up Shenandoah, Virginia.
It must be one of the most beautiful places on earth.

But now we are off to Brighton.
Got to make the most of it while they’re here.

Ain’t that the truth.


Love & Hugs,
Barb
