Brilliant day and a few CAS cards

Good morning everyone, what a difference the sun makes. Grab a cuppa and try not to nod off at the back please LOL. I had the most perfect day yesterday. It was my turn to host our get together and what a wonderful day it was too. As always we started the day off with bacon butties, these are obligatory to get us into the mood. Then the next obligatory thing we do is craft shopping, you cannot have a craft get together without a bit of retail therapy so off we went to Breedon on the Hill and I bought about 5 new dies so lots of playing to be done this week. We did confuse the poor girl, who was standing in for her Mum, and I think she was glad to see the back of us hehehehehe. Unlike her Mum, she is not used to us lot when we are together! Arriving back home of course the kettle went on and the home made scones, provided by Sandra, were lathered in clotted cream and topped with fresh strawberries (I am drooling just thinking about them). 
Have you nodded off yet?
Crafting time had finally arrived and there was lots of laughing  but not many cards made :o)
I made a ginormous cottage pie for dinner and this was followed with Pauline's gorgeous home made black sticky gingerbread and more cream. Methinks it will take more than this week to work of those calories.....
Anyhow, time to show you my cards before you forget why you are here :o)






As usual, I have feather my photographs in PSP then printed onto Bazzill and linen card, then cut and folded to A6 apart from the peacock which is 6x6. I have shown the peacock inside to illustrate that I put the image on the insert too.
Okay, you can wake up now, I've finished :o)
