Quick catch up before I'm off on my travels again .........

Happy Tuesday!

Well .... we survived another TT fortnight ...... just!!  
We had a fabulous week last week ........ not much time spent in the old craft room though, I'm afraid!
Hubby took the week off work and we had a ball!  The weather was glorious, and we were out and about every day .......  it felt as though we were actually on holiday.

Here's a quick catch up on race week ........
Tuesday evening saw the Red Arrows fly in over Douglas Bay .......

Always fun to watch ....... especially sat up on the terrace with a nice bottle of red ..... cheers!

We saw quite a bit of the racing ...... down at Bray Hill, up at the Creg and two days on the park at the Grandstand.  We got a lovely spot ........ well Lauren and her boyfriend did!  They did the early starts, we joined them later.  We were right by the roadside, just down from the start line and the pit lane .....

And ...... close enough to get to the enclosure when the winners came in ......

Here's John McGuinness, the winner of the Senior Race on Friday, closely followed by the number 2 James Hillier ........ it suddenly got very noisy down there!!!

And of course here's Guy Martin ....... he had a good race, unfortunately he finished 4th though (sigh!)

Never mind ..... only 347 days until it all starts again!!

I did manage to spend some time in the old craft room yesterday ..... I've got birthday cards to make, Father's Day to sort out, as well as catching up with some Blog Challenges.

It's One Layer Week over at Less is More ...... you all know how I love those!!, and the theme this week is ......

Very CAS, lots of white space.  

The words are from Inkylicious, and the cute little cottage is by Clarity

I added a touch of colour and shading using my Spectrum Noir Pencils and I finished off with a little heart at the end of the sentiment, coloured and then Wink of Stella'd ........

One layer ..... and only one attempt, almost unheard of!

That's it from me today...... busy week ahead.  We're going away on Friday ........ a nice family trip over to the Cotswolds ...... I can't wait!  Lots to do before then though ..... including going to a craft workshop this afternoon.  

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time
