Thank you

Hello Fellow bloggers
Ooh it's been rather cold here today
So spoilt because the weather in Italy was gorgeous
Yes l had a mini break in Italy (Lake Como) where my daugher
Sarah and her partner Mark are getting married in August this year 
They where there to sample the wedding food
And checked out the venue it's a beautiful place
l can see why many go and marry abroad
Here is a sample of the photos l took during my visit
 Daughter Sarah and her Husband to be Mark
 Beautiful views across Lake Como
 This is the appartment l stayed at
 Exploring the sites and sampling the Italian Wine and food
And the famous Harry's Bar the food lived up to it's spectations it was delicious
Can't wait until we go back in August 
Here is a thank you card l made for my neighbour after keeping an eye on my property
While l was away
Items used was plenty of snippets of backing paper 
Recycled image added some gems and flowers
Hope you enjoy your visit

Oh Sandra, what an absolute dream to be in Italy... let alone for such a special occasion. I cannot wait to hear all about it when the time comes! I'm glad your visit was so wonderful.. your pictures are gorgeous. :) Your card is so pretty, in design and thought. It is so sweet of you to make a card for your house sitter. :) Your heart is beautiful, my friend. I missed you while I was away yet again. Have a wonderful night, Sandra. :)
