Whimsie Doodles..... we're back!!


HI Lovely Blogging Friends.....

Have you missed me?? LOL!  I've been away on my jollies for a little while...  we went back to the Isle of Wight where we used to live, and had a wonderful time!  The Island really showed itself at it's best to us.... the sun shone every day, and we met up with lots of good friends..... lots of chatting, relaxing - and yes.... the odd glass of wine or two!  

And then when we got back, my printer decided that it liked the relaxing life, so it went on strike for a couple of days..  I just got it working - which is why I'm late with my cards for Whimsie Doodles!!  

So........  WE'RE BACK!  Whimsie Doodles is in full swing after our summer break.... and wow, there are some fabulous new releases to tempt you!  This is Mermaid Abby - hope you like!

So sorry I've missed out on commenting while I've been away...  but I have been trying to do a little bit of catching up..... am I forgiven??

And now I'm going to do the boring bit and show you a couple of pics of our hols....  I bought a selfie stick on the trip there - and put it to use!! LOL!  Yes.... I'm one of the embarrassing, annoying people!!  But hey... I loved it!

 OK - holiday snaps boring bit over...  I'll be back very shortly with my card for our Sept challenge at Whimsie Doodles too.... I promise to keep that post minimal to make up for this one!!

Big hugs


  1. Another gorgeous card Christine! Love it!
    And glad you had such fun on your holiday, and that the weather held out for you. Needless to say, we've had rain pretty much every day, lol. x

  2. I'm giggling at that comment about Barry.. I often think the same thing at a tiny 5ft and a peanut. Tee hee.
    Nice to have you back..
    Your card is so very gorgeous. Just love it!


  3. I like how you've dotted the hair with this sweet little sea miss.
    Great holiday pics too.

  4. Beautiful image Christine, love how you've done her hair, lovely!
    Fab photos, looks great!

  5. Well that'll teach me, I commented on your last post first and said I hope you had a good holiday and by the looks of these lovely photo's you certainly did.
    Love this card too especially the fabulous hair.

  6. Of course you were missed, but as you have come back with a totally delightful card I will forgive you LOL.
    Lovely photographs too :o)

  7. Gorgeous card (Love her hair) and lovely pics of the two of you. Looks fab sunshine too.

  8. Anyone would think it's me that's been on holiday given how tardy I am getting round to my comments this week!

    The mermaid seems appropriate after you have had such a lovely time away by the sea! She is coloured beautifully and I love the polka dot DP :-)

    Fabulous pictures too, although those cakes are making my mouth water! It's good to know you had such a great time away :-)
    Shame about your printer but at least it recovered...mine well and truly died just over a week ago :-( The new one arrived yesterday and is brilliant; wireless printing, can now print digi papers, but haven't tried digi stamp yet with my Copics.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx


If you like what you see and have a moment, please say hello.. it means a lot to me..
