Pass The Pimms, Feeling Summery!

Sorry for lack of blogging....according to hubby...I've been doing far too much blogging...he obviously doesn't read my blog!!!  And things have been soooo totally hectic that I haven't had a chance to visit any blogs...so huge apologies to my design team mates!!!

Not been home much as "one" has been sampling the delights of Henley Royal Regatta.  If you read this blog you will have seen that my youngest has been getting quite good with her rowing.  So we thought it might be nice if she got to go to Henley with her rowing partner.  Seeing as it is their ambition to row at Henley...(Unfortunately there isn't an event for a ladies pair)...

Also huge decorating project going on...and suddenly 48 hours notice...got a french girl coming to stay for a week. Stuff everywhere..can't even see the bed in the spare room atm...and DH is away until Friday! DD1 is adamant she will not help....DD2 is currently hoovering, bless her!

So this is a thank you card to the friends that gave us tickets for Stewards so that the Emily and Sarah could see what the the best crews were like.  They had the huge privilege to get photographed with Sir Steve Redgrave and so this was the inspiration for the card....together with the "bubble wrap stamp by Sam Poole"....you create loads of bubbles when you row!! And if, by any chance you get to see this Sir Steven...you totally made the girls day! Thank you!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges....

"Crafty bloggers network - Anything goes"
"Incy Wincy Designs - Summertime" what could be more summertime than Henley and Pimms?
"Make it Monday - Anything goes"
"Stamps and Fun - Summer" Pimms again!
"That Craft Place - anything goes"
"Less is more - Gold"....a bit outside the box with this one....Sir Steve Redgrave is my golden ticket having won 5 gold medals in the Olympics!

My son was a rower.... at Cambridge!
