I hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting some down time after another week has zoomed by. My husband and I, along with some friends, went to an illustrated talk last night on the National Parks of Great Britain. It is so easy to forget what a beautiful country we live in and when I saw the slides of all the different National Parks, I was amazed at the variety of landscapes we have here without having to jet round the world to find them. I have yet to visit them all and have added some of them to my mental bucket list, but we are so lucky to have the Peak District, Snowdonia, Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks all within day trip distance from home. Now if we only had the weather you get abroad .... sigh.
We are off to Oxfordshire tomorrow to explore that area of the world. I want to visit some of the beautiful Oxford buildings that I have only seen on the 'Morse' programmes. One day is reserved for a visit to Blenheim Palace where Winston Churchill was born, and after that we will just go with the flow. Before I start to pack, I just wanted to share a card and tag I made which is a variation on a butterfly card that I made a little while ago. Since doing the CAS course, I have really liked the sight of white space on my cards and it also has my favourite dotty ribbon on it:-

I also made a little tag in the same colours to go on the present.
These sunny colours are a little outside my comfort zone but they really lift the spirits. All the materials are from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks for looking and have a great week.
