Nuts About Fall
Well, I am back from England and I had a lovely time. We didn't go as many places this time as we usually do when we visit but did manage to spend a fabulous day at Portsmouth touring old warships, took a run to Bakewell to get my special scotch and went to London for a tour of Buckingham Palace and tea at Fortnum and Mason.. I also managed to get some craft shopping in and now just have to figure out how to keep my husband calm when he sees the bills. It isn't as much the cost of the items but the fact that 1 British pound costs $1.62 Canadian. That exchange rate is a killer.
On the day in London I met up with Anne Ray, who is Phindy's DT Leader and a friend of my hostess. You would almost think the four of us had known each other for years because we got along so nicely and had such a lovely day. Anne is a super lady and I am so glad that we got to meet.
I am exhausted with the time change and the 7 hour flight but should get back to normal by tomorrow - I hope. I also have to work on losing the 5 pounds that I gained.
Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Place is to make a card or other paper-crafted project with a AUTUMN/FALL theme. I have created a card in the colours of fall and used a great Phindy image that screams fall.
