We're off again!

Hi all,
I'm madly packing again as we are away for a week. Tomorrow I am off to Peterborough to a class at Sir Stampalot, and I can't wait! Then, Steve and the girls are picking me up so we can go to Hook to meet some friends from Sydney who are over here visiting family. It will be great to see them again. I can't believe that it has already been three months since we got back. On Sunday evening we are then off to Somerset to spend a week with my parents. I should still be able to get on the internet now and again to keep up with you all.
I made this card a few weeks ago and only just realised that I haven't posted it. When I started out making cards, I used to do a lot of decoupage and pyramage, but then I got hooked on stamps and find it hard to make a card without one now. However, the fabulous Wendy at Digital Delights has designed some fab pyramage and decoupage sheets. I have used Carolling Penny pyramage and kept with traditional colours. The card didn't take too long to do, but I like how it turned out and took me back to my roots! Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Nikki
Thanks for finding me too, and for your lovely comments. Like Lynn I was desperately trying to remember everyone's names, never mind the names of their blogs! (I blame my age!) It was lovely to meet you, and I've included you on my post now. Your brayering looked pretty good to me, and like Brenda said, keep practising!
