One for fun!

Just to show it's not all about pretty flowers lol!

Made this fun card for my best friend; bit of a story, so go and make a cuppa and settle down.....

 Gail lives near Glasgow and I live in London.
I used to go up on the plane to visit her every year but became too ill to continue.

A few years ago she invested in a caravan and so was able to travel to a site near me each year during the summer hols. Two years ago she bought a big caravan. 

When she came down this year it was during the "rainy" season :-0. It didn't stop pouring the whole time she was here. It was so loud on the roof we could barely hear each other speaking!
Didn't spoil our enjoyment of being in each others company though and we had a cream tea two days running :-))))

So I made this for her birthday and made sure the sun was shining in it :-)
She saw the funny side of it and we had a good laugh on the phone.

The design of the car/caravan is actually from a stitching pattern.

OK you can stop yawning with boredom lol ;-)



Many thanks for looking and for any comments which are always appreciated xx
