Cuttlebug Mania – Flying High

Tuesday, 17 September 2013

Well where did that holiday go!! We’ve just spent 2 weeks in France, one in the Alps and one in the Charente. We’ve had a fantastic time, lots of walks and bike rides, lovely company and lots of yummy food and wine, plus the delicious Pineau des Charente. It comes in Rose and White and it’s just the most gorgeous drink. Very warming and comforting and far too easy to drink!! If you ever get a chance to try some, I highly recommend it.


On to this weeks challenge at Cuttlebug Mania and it’s Flying High. This could be birds, planes, balloons etc but the first thing that came into my head were roller coasters.  I made a little carriage out of Kraft cardstock and stamped the people behind. I thought this card was a little bit of fun. Sorry about the quality of the photo, but the light was terrible. I will be returning to make regular comments on your projects now that I’m back from my holidays.
