Making Cards again

I was very short of Men,s cards so thought  I would buy a sheet of pictures to make a few quick cards
Here are some of the cards that came from the sheets.

A birthday card made for a friend of ours

Two of the same card made in different shapes

this one made in a class at my local craft store

The above two cards were made for a craft day we are having next week so the girls have something to do besides eat drink and chat

This card was made for my Husband on o ur Anniversary ( 42 years this year)

Photographs of our beautiful block of land in Kooralbyn

We get lovely breezes most of the day and have had lots of water recently ( will have to get a bigger water tank although we have water to the block the flow is not very good.)

2014 so far

Well Christmas came and went (2013) had a great time at my daughters and helped to look after our grandsons during the school holidays.
Just before Christmas we decided to purchase a property in the beautiful Kooralbyn Valley in between Beaudesert and Rathdowney. It is just over 2 acres on the side of a very large hill ( or small mountain whichever way you look at it). It has a large shed on it and power and water to the block.
After the boys went back to school we stayed at a friends place in Buccan for 4 weeks ferrying daily to the block all our boxes from both our daughter's houses.
We have bow been living on the block for about 5 weeks in the caravan and Stephen is in his element again. He is digging holes both manually and with a Backhoe (yes we purchased a big boy toy for him) to route the electricity cables and water pipes to the shed and then he will convert part of the shed for us to live in as we have decided to sell our caravan and car and try to purchase a smaller one.
We are also going overseas this year, mid July, visiting Singapore, Dublin, England, Scotland,London, Paris,Baden Baden,Munich and Venice. Looking forward to seeing family and also the Edinburgh Military Tattoo ( which I've always wanted to see)
This will probably be our last trip over to England as I think the money will run out soon.
We still have to try and build a house on the property but we will look at this when we get back.
I have been making more cards since we settled here and will have to get back into the habit of photographing them for you all to see.
We do not intend to stop traveling but just wont be traveling full time as there is still so much of Australia to see.
