Home Again!

Happy Saturday bloggers!  I'm back home after a lovely week in my tent in Devon.  I say lovely, but what I mean is it was an adventure!!  We were very, very lucky to be able to bring our tent home again in one piece following two nights of gale force winds and lashing rain!  Being right on the coast I counted my blessings that we woke up in the same field that we *slept* in (the noise of the wind prevented a lot of sleep!!!).  Unfortunately the same could not be said for the the lovely family next door - their poor tent took a good bashing and was ripped to shreds in parts.  It was ferocious!

Anyway, a good night's sleep in my own bed last night has put me right back on track and I finally got finished my entry for the Totally Tilda DT call.  I coloured the image before I went away and managed to get it assembled this morning - it's one of the very few stepper cards I've ever made, and here it is:
The bg paper, believe it or not, is giftwrap that I found at Tesco and I just had to buy it because it is so gorgeous.  Tilda and the harbour were coloured with pencils and I used Stickles stardust around all the edges.

Fingers crossed for a result! Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very happy weekend!  It's meant to be one the hottest days of the year?? hmmmm...... not here it isn't!  :o) xx
