I haven't been blogging for the past few days 
as I've been away in the Yorkshire Dales with limited internet access.

Don't usually post non crafty pics 
but these are relevant to my crafty posts :-)
This is me on our walk - on this walk MIL & I collected

from these guys ....

whilst walking to Castle Bolton
- if you get chance it's a great place to visit :-)

on the way we found these wonderful fungi

and this fantastic log
check out the gorgeous textures! :-)

This is the Easter card I made

inspired by the countryside we walked through
& using the bits of wool that we collected whilst walking through the fields which were full of spring lambs :-)
using the limited crafty stash that I had with me :-)

The wool made into sheep with the addition of legs (done with copics)

Managed to leave behind ALL of my Easter stamps so had to 
 freehand the sentiment

these are close-ups of the other card I made 
but I don't have the full view unfortunately as I was interrupted when taking them & didn't have chance to go back & photograph ..........
