Anyway, just wanted to share a card with you that I was able to make before I went away - using one of my favourite Sarah Kay stamps "Time for apple pie"
I've coloured the stamp with Graphit pens and a touch of pencil
The papers are from LOTV, as is the sentiment stamp. I've added flowers from WOC and die cut ivy corner from Joanna Sheen.
And I just thought I'd share a few pics of Lewes, the beautiful little market town in East Sussex where my daughter is now living - taken when we were out on a walk the other day (so excuse the overcast February weather!).
There are lots of these little narrow, cobbled streets (called 'twittens') with such cute little houses - but they are quite steep so I can imagine they're a bit treacherous in bad weather! My daughter lives near the top of one of these - keeps you fit walking up and down the hills lol!
We had a walk through Southover gardens in the town - and you can see Lewes Castle on the hill in the distance in the top photo. They'll be beautiful in a few more weeks when all the spring flowers and blossoms are out!
And then a walk around the Priory ruins, of the 11th Century priory of St Pancras, an active priory until the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th Century. The ruins are open to wander around, with lots of information about how it would have looked, what the various buildings were, etc.
And after all that, we treated ourselves to lunch in a sweet little cafe near the castle! Perfect girly time!
I hope you'll forgive the photo overload - just thought I'd share a few pics of a very pretty little corner of the country!
