I really can’t believe how few posts I’ve been able to make pretty much all of summer so far.  It’s not a bad thing, it actually means we’re getting out and about a lot more but it’s leaving me little time to anything else, and sorting through the days photos and compiling a blog post are taking a serious back seat this year.  I also just don’t have much time to blog hop either, so I’m sorry if I haven’t called around much lately!  I’ve also had a very lucky break with two of my husbands lines on the genealogy front, the Palmers and the Peachey’s, both of Burwell in Cambridgeshire and have added close to 200 names to our family tree in the last month, but I’ve also found great things like wills too and have been having a ball reading through everything and finding yet more little twigs to attach to the tree.  Wonderful stuff.

And talking of family, here is a little card I knocked up quite quickly (for me anyway) for my FIL for his birthday last Sunday, always struggle making men cards but I’d just bought a new clear stamp set with a travel theme and I knew I had some vintagey travel paper in my stash and the right coloured card to pull it all together; the sentiment was printed on the computer.  The two little Eiffel Towers were heat embossed in black.

Our plans for this weekend include kayaking on Saturday morning, baking/making something for a friends combined birthday and house warming party, and then attending said party!  Sunday will see us making our annual trip to the fabulous Thunder Over Michigan air display, so once again, a very busy weekend!  Whatever you’re all doing I hope you enjoy it and the weather stays fine…. and I hope I can catch up with you all soon!!
