Oh to be in England!

I just wanted to let you know I'm still here ... just not working on my card-making right now! Far too busy having a wonderful time with my family in England. Who wouldn't love this?

... and here's Sarah playing her flute in Elmsett Church which is in the village my parents live in.

Look at that for a front entrance! The tombstone in the ground just by the door is Saxon (10th Century) and the Church is mentioned in the Doomsday Book which puts it at over 1,000 years old.
Home at the end of the week (sob) ... but lots of work to do so I won't have time to dwell on being homesick!

An English Country Wedding

Last weekend my cousin Antonia married Jon in Gloucestershire, England. We had an absolutely wonderful time sharing their day with them. Here's my sister (in the pink) and me all dressed up!
The reception was at Chavenage House just outside Tetbury in Gloucestershire. The house is medieval (1500s) so is full of character and history, the perfect setting to celebrate a wedding, especially with our string quartet playing on the lawn!

Here are mum, Sarah, Antonia, my sister Sarah and Sophie my niece enjoying the day.

And here's the front of the house at dusk, with the lights from the party inside glowing ... totally blissful!
