Washed out!

Oooer!  It's Friday already and I haven't yet posted my card for this week's Midweek Magnolia theme which is "Anything Goes".  My lovely teamies have created some fabulous projects, please pop over there and take a look at them!

I'm late posting because we decided to take a chance on the weather and head off with our tent to Devon.  unusually though we had to book ahead because the world and his dog chose this week to go camping!  We did find a fabulous place called Leadstone Camping at Dawlish.  Beautiful campsite, very clean and well managed.  However, the weather wasn't on our side.  We bore the brunt of this European Monsoon that's in full swing and Devon and Cornwall were apparently on 'Ambert Alert' yesterday.  Yuk!  It was horrible in a tent and everything got soaked.  I've camped in the rain before and it doesn't bother me, but this was different - it was incredibly windy, freezing cold and the rain was just not letting up at all and with the forecast ahead being just as grim, we decided to call it a day and came home.

Before I went though I made this card in anticipation of smelling the sea air!  We did manage to spend a gorgeous day in the sunshine at Brixham, so it wasn't all bad.

The bg paper is one that I made myself using a digi kit - I can't remember which one, off the top of my head, but I will try and remember and post it next time.

Right, that's my lot.  Hope you're all having a good week, despite the rain.  See you soon and thank you for stopping by! :o) xx
