Quick Post Today

Just a quick post today as it's the first Brighton Marathon and as Hubby is mad enough to take part, I need to make my way to the centre of town. Not an easy thing to do with most of the roads closed and the buses changing routes for the day! He left this morning at 6.15am and managed to hitch two lifts to get to where he needed to be for the start line.
Anyway, Jenni and Tom are moving into a new flat very soon. They will be living in Shoreham-By-Sea in West Sussex, a small town with the South Downs to the north, the Adur Valley to the west, and the River Adur and Shoreham Beach on the English Channel to the south. Their flat has a balcony looking out over the River Adur and the houseboats moored there. It's a beautiful spot and they are very lucky to get the flat.
I made this card quickly this morning to give them today as we are meeting up in Brighton at lunchtime to watch the runners and take some photos.

I used a Hero Arts stamp and Tim Holtz ink in Cranberry, dragging the colour around each clock face  with a water brush. Inside I included a quotation that I think is very true about what makes a house into a home. 
Gotta go now as I have to put away my crafting stuff and find a bus that's actually running into town!


  1. Love the effect you created using the paint brush the stamp.

    Your hubby is either brave, fit or plain mad to do a run like that .....I wish him well. Does he just want to complete it or has he a time to beat/achieve? Hope you see him and give him a cheer. xx

  2. Well it's all go at your place - hope the Marathon has gone well for your DH, what a player! I love the card, colour,image, the lot - agree with you about the sentiment. And would love to live near water, am a teeny bit jealous!

  3. Oh i love that card, that is always such a nice thing to do! and the saying inside...

    I've never heard that before...but I love it!

    love and dreams....the foundation of a great home!

    ciao bella
    thanks for popping in!
