Well today I'm going to post a parcel in time for Miles Birthday on Saturday then we are going to Whitby. For those of you who go there the Whitby Craft Shop in the Abbey Wharf (The Shambles )Market is closing on the 25th June. However good news Whitby Crafts are moving to a shop on Brunswick Street its on the other side of the river up the bank it used to be Judiths quilt/craft shop owned by a lady called Judith so I wanted to pay a last visit so I can get all the details about the new shop. I think it will be just as good as the lady who owns Whitby Crafts is lovely and a crafter. 
We also need to find a decent Fish and  Chip shop that does GF The Magpie had a huge fire a few months ago and is not opening again for a long while We tried The Quayside last time but not that good even though they have won Fish and Chip shop of the year .

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone I'll be back tomorrow not with one but two posts just like those buses they all come together. Love and hugs Carole x .

  3. Oh, this made me smile! He's really sweet, love his jauntily worn Santa hat. Lovely colour palette and a fantastic card design. The reindeer button, bells and stars are fab additions to your card.
    Miles is having another Birthday? Wow, isn't time just whizzing away. I heard about the Magpie fire and knew you'd be disappointed not to get your fish and chips. The ones in Barnard Castle are really good but I don't know if they do gluten free ones. I was planning to go to the craft shop next time we went to the apartment but that'll have to wait, thanks for the update. Debra x

  4. It's a lovely color palette Carole. Only been to Whitby once but the fish and chips were memorable.
