I'm still playing catch up after being away for a long weekend to my sons we got to see the new house its an Edwardian house and currently under renovation so a bit of a bomb site at present but it is a fabulous house which will be an amazing home for them when its finished. We had a lovely night out with them in Knutsford on Saturday evening and Michael and  I  stayed in a very nice hotel called Cottons. The highlight as always was the lovely time we spent with Miles which we always enjoy so much.  Love and  hugs Carole x

  2. Beautiful card Carole! Lovely image from Bugaboo complimented by the gorgeous leaf border and the two birdcage. Love the dragonflies, so delicate made from the vellum and the embossing looks wonderful and such a gorgeous colour too.
    Glad to hear you had some Miles time :). I love Georgian houses, always so elegant looking. I hope they're taking plenty before and after photos of the renovation which I'd love to see.
