Kitty Mannequin

Good morning everyone well I'm back from my holidays and  eventually getting everything sorted just finished the last of the ironing yesterday what a task. We had a great time in Sri Lanka it was a beautiful place and  the people are so lovely Our hotel was in a lovely location and  great food. Definitely could of stayed a while I love the hot.sunshine. We had a bit of a journey home fight delayed from Colombo so only had about an hour for our transfer in Dubai airport which involved a  bus ride and several security checks. I now know I can speed walk !! Got to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. downside when we got to Manchester one of our bags was still in Dubai it couldn't speed walk !! fortunately the bag that did arrive had most of the things we needed for the wedding we were travelling to the next day in Dorset. Our bag came on the next flight from Dubai and was delivered to our house the next day by Emirates..
The wedding was gorgeous I've never been to a marque wedding it was perfect as the sun shone most of the day. The setting was beautiful at the village church then on the Groom's parent's farm.

Well that's a quick catch up and  now onto my card. Today sees the launch of a new Anything Goes Challenge over at Crafting by Designs We have three sponsors this week giving some fab prizes
