What a beautiful day it is here in Canterbury, and it looks as if the sun is shining on all those inspirational people running the London Marathon, best of luck to them all.
I have had a real family couple of days, first Friday spent with Ben and Charlie, and yesterday Matthew, Emma and Sam came down, we decided to go to the opening of the New Turner Art Gallery in Margate, so had a very cultural afternoon, as it was the opening day the exhibitions were quite sparse but what we did see was fabulous, especially being able to see and almost touch a Turner IRL, I do hope this is the beginning of the regeneration of Margate, it has been left to become really run down for too long, the beautiful sandy beach is one of the best in the South East but the state of the sea front is just so off putting, empty shops and run down buildings.
After visiting the Art Centre we met up with James, Vicki, Ben and Lucy and took in the lovely party atmosphere. On the way back home we stopped at a stunning 14th Century Pub and had a real slap up meal, the end of a perfect day.
Having been away from the craft room for 2 days it took a bit of time to get into the mood this morning, but here is a quick card I made whilst watching the Grand Prix and the Marathon. I have used another of my new Bildmalarna Stamps on this Easter card which I am sending to Mum, the stamp actually has her sitting on an egg, but I couldn’t get the complete image to fit the lovely sketch on Sketch Saturday this week so I have cut her out and 3d her onto the Nestie Ovals.
