Oh I am a bad blogger, not blogged for ages! Well I did go away to Torquay for a few days, but have been back for a couple of weeks so no excuse really but I am struggling to find my mojo.
In Torquay we were on a bus when there was a bang and I watched a large seagull tumbling over and over coming to rest on his back with his feet in the air on the pavement (sidewalk). I assume he was trying to steal some food from someone on the top deck and didn't realise about glass. I wonder if this was the silly bird, probably not.
We went into Paignton to watch Inception (or Conception according to the hotel receptionist) which was awesome, and then we waited at the bus stop for our ride home, we had enquired where the stop was when we got off the bus at the cinema. We waited................and waited, tried ringing the number on the sign but no answer, in the end started walking. Got to the next stop and found the buses stopped 10 minutes ago in Paignton! We had seen an open top bus speeding by but he didn't stop at the bus stop, in fairness we didn't flag him down but he wasn't really looking at the stop anyway. We assumed that the open top bus was a special tourist bus now I think it was maybe the normal service in summer and we just missed it.
We were due back at the hotel for our evening meal, so I had to ring them to say we would be late and rebook a later table, and then we kept walking back to the main road to look for the other bus - every 10 minutes. We saw plenty of buses but all going the other way, finally a little bus turned up and it was going our way, yippee at last!
No sign of the seagull who fell, so he either got up or had been removed.
This card was for my Son and Daughter in Law who just bought their first own home, and it is white with a green roof and door. I used a set of Dario stamps for this and stamped onto black card with white Versamark as my first choice seemd to have dried up, and then added white embossing powder. I cut the house out and stamped another one on white card and coloured the roof and door before cutting them out and layering them. The tree, sun and blooms are were coloured with my Marvy wet look pens straight onto the stamp but not embossed. The butterflies are because it is was also the first wedding anniversary and the fence is a Sizzix die cut.
