Morning Vicky

Another super lovely creation .. .. loving your layout and that gorgeously decorated flourish at the side.

I would be super worried like you if one of mine was going off to New York .. .. but what an adventure!! It will be something never to be forgotten by your daughter I am sure (and probably not you either).

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx

Sarah said...

Hi Vicky, such a beautiful card - as always. Wonderful colours and such a sweet image.

It was -13 outside our house this morning (about 7.30am) and only got to +5 even at midday. Don't think you'd be visiting our part of the country anytime soon with those temps, would you!!!


PS - I remember our school doing trips, but to Canvey Island and Southend, not New York!!! Lucky Bexx, and I'm sure you will be fine - it will fly by!

Katina said...

Perfect Vicky! xx

Andrea said...

A beautiful card Vicky - I love that image.
I hope your daughter has a fabulous time in New York - I'm sure the time will fly by!
We seem to be lucky here in mid Wales - no snow, and the temperature has not been too cold - dull and damp today!
I hope your snow disappears soon, and that you keep warm.
Love, Andrea xx
