Wonderful day in York + a card

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. Thank goodness the rain has stopped!
I have a fantastic day in York on Sunday with my daughter and granddaughter. We (daughter and me) had gone up there to take granddaughter Sian's bike so she can get out and about, and I wanted to be nosey and see what her digs is like LOL. She and three other students are sharing a bungalow and I was very surprised, and relieved,  to see how nice it is LOL. Sian took us on a tour of the Minster area and in the Minster itself. Wow, what a magnificent building that is! Of course it cost me for lunch for the three of us but it was well worth it, and what an unforgettable day it was :o)
Anyhow, on to my card for today.


Another very simple card but no photographs LOL.
I bought this Crafts Too embossing folder a few weeks ago and forgot all about it tut. tut!
Embossed very pale blue pearlised card and I love how clear it shows up. Added a Marianne deer diecut (another new toy) and stamped Woodware greeting and that's all there is to it :o)

Hi Jackie

Beautiful card... fabulous embossing folder and that reindeer diecut is perfect for it!

Glad you had a lovely day in York... it's only about 12 miles from us so we visit quite often. It's a stunning city and is always bustling. Both my daughters went to York uni... it really is a fabulous place and they loved it - and Emma has stayed there to settle.

Glad to hear your granddaughter got decent digs too! But tell her to make sure her bike is in a locked shed if she can, there's a heck of a lot of bike theft around (Emma had hers stolen from her back yard at her digs complete with lock and chain and they took it over a six foot wall!!) But as long as bike theft is the worst of it, it's not a bad city and she'll have the time of her life there!

Hugs

It's beautiful!!! yes, the blue really pops and I love the elegance of the CAS design. Hummm, maybe the girls cleaned up for you....either way...it's great that they are learning to live on their own. Glad you had the time to spend with family. I didn't even miss not having a photo today...your cards w/o photos are always just as pretty.
