Hi folks, I hope all is good in your part of the world :D

Over here at Wimbledon Murray made it to the semis, yes!!! Weather is set to be fine for a while and next week I'm off for a few days R&R Yippee!!!

So I have a couple of cards to share, my owl card is for a lovely young lady whooooo is moving on with her job and I wanted to wish her well :D
Check out the mooving eyes LOL I used an Andy Skinner mask Owls

This next card is for LIM where it's a lucky dip week! Chrissie and Jen have challenged us with one word, SAND in honour of Hannelie's GD for this week, well done Hannelie! 

 My choice of stamp is this little cutie wistfully gazing out to sea. I can remember from my childhood how magical it is at the sea-side, watching the salty waves gently lapping onto the beach, seagulls keening above Ahhhhh! Nothing to do, just daydream away..................................
 Thank you for stopping for a while, if you say "Hi" I will do my best to visit you soon, Gay x

Very nice cards,



Hi Gay - here I am at last (sorry!). Love those googly eyes on the Owl, and the beach scene is so tranquil - you brought back some happy childhood memories with this one!

Wasn't the Murray match a fantastic nail-biter yesterday - I could hardly bear to watch at times, but what a great result. I will be watching him again tomorrow (and fingers crossed - Sunday too).
Enjoy your R&R - Big Hugs, Sylvia xxx
