Rome 2017

Hello and a big warm welcome to my blog. Hope everyone is well, I have not long returned from a 5 day break in Rome. It was our first time ever to Italy and it's been on my list of places to go for years. We were totally blown away. We walked and walked for miles and saw all the sights.... but trust us to go when there is a heatwave ! 40/41 degrees was soooo hot !

It was a truly fabulous trip and I really need to see other parts of Italy !
Anyway here's a quick card I made using some stamps by me products and stix2 card.
Thanks for looking 
Take care
