Stamptacular Sunday challenge and blog hop

May 31, 2009

Good morning every one. Its time again for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. and this week the theme is ‘Something old, something blue, something borrowed something blue’  wich means this week we are looking at a wedding theme.

There are some wonderful projects by the DT so please pop by and have a look.

Here is my creation:

We also have a blog hop today.

This is our first ever blog hop and we are so glad that you could join us.

If you have come to my blog first then you have missed some fun.   You need to go to Paula’s blog first and then follow your way bac through to me.

If you have followed the blogs through then congratulations you are nearly at the end of the blog hop and in with a chance of winning the grand prize.

During the summer we love to take out our touring caravan and enjoy the beautiful countryside around the UK.  Walking and visiting National Trust properties and enjoying the country we live in.   We also enjoy inviting our friends around for BBQ’s and socialising.

Your next hop along will be Dee‘s  blog please pop by and leave her a lovely message.

    Puh! I’ve already been visiting Paula, Nikki, Line, Pricilla, Donna, Liza, Joey, Janneke, Joanne and Kritin – and now it’s your turn!

    My favourite activity during the summer, is spending time with my family on our 23 feet boat, and go swimming in the sea!

    Happy summer, Jilly! Hugs, Lena

    Hey Jilly,
    you should try caravaning in Norway, where the roads up the the fjords are 1 lane and the slow houses on wheels drive the natives crazy 😀 Your wedding card is stunning – simple yet elegant!

    Wish you a sunny summer with nice traveling ^_^

    xx, nunt

    great wedding card love the embossing.
    in the summer we spend half of the time in either wales or the lake district taking long walks, swimming in streams running down from the mountains oh and visiting the local homemade icecream shop that sells over 45 flavours and i do enjoy that it doesn’t get dark till much later in the evening.

    We used to caravan loads as a kid – even had 6 month pitch Sandown on I.O.W. – which was strange coz we lived only a few miles away in Cowes 🙂
