Not a card

Hi fellow bloggers, 
I can safely say after 22 days of work without a day off, its officially my holiday for 9 whole days. We are off to Cumbria in the morning to pick up the much awaited wedding photos - cant wait. We are staying for a couple of days. We will be off to Abbey house hotel for afternoon tea. I have so much planned lunch on several days with different friends catching up, a craft day round at my wonderful craft buddies house ( maria ) and lots of crafting & generally taking it easy , I think as I have been overdoing it my back has been really painful the last few days!!! But enough of that.... The reason for todays post is there is a new challenge over at Hobbycutz and the theme is "not a card" ....... 
I chose to do a tag using texture paste, g45 steampunk spells and the gorgeous wooden pumpkins from Hobbycutz.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend so far. Let me know what you think. And as always a big thanks for taking the time to stop by. It means so much to me. Take care Elaine xx

P.s only 3 more followers for the candy giveaway - spread the word !!
