Graphic 45 cards and pictures of Chester

Hi Crafting friends , I've been neglecting my blog , various things , too hot , busy with the house etc. Yesterday my hubby was at work all day so I had a play in my craftroom using the wonderful 12x12 papers by Graphic 45. I've always loved their stuff, this years Secret Garden has really inspired me and so has place in time and Ladies Diary.
The elegant lady in the first pic has already been sent to a lovely lady and a family member on my hubbies side. She loves my cards and will be thrilled to receive this I'm sure.
I hope your all doing fine and enjoying the fine weather (in the UK) , makes a change doesn't it ! although sleeping is hard in stuff bedrooms built to keep the heat in. Well it's dull now following heavy rain last night.
I'm going to my local craft shop this afternoon, think some more Graphic 45 papers will be falling into my basket.

Things are progressing well with the house move , we can't wait , living in the center of Chester will be such a change but one we are all looking forward to . My son Sam will be able to walk to work in 5 mins as opposed to an hour on the bus. The river , great pubs and restaurants, not to mention shops all on the door step. The pics bellow show Chester, our house is very near the city walls , they surround Chester and you can walk all round the looking down on the people bellow . The walls by us have steps down to the Roman gardens, more steps down from here and your at the river (Dee).  The clock pictured is on the walls on the East Gate bridge , it's the most photographed clock after Big Ben.

well hope you enjoyed the picture fest , or maybe I just bored you. Time to jump in the shower now and then have breakfast. Have a great day.
happy crafting. janex

Wow you have been busy. Those ladies are so elegant and you've made a fabulous selection of cards with them and the papers.
Glad the move is going well. I went to Chester with a friend last summer and it is a lovely pace. Plus we had a walk along the river and sat there for quite a while. Bliss.

Oh wow, oh wow, what amazing, beautiful cards! I am totally in awe (as my daughter says!!)

how wonderful that you're living in the middle of beautiful Chester. Last time my OH and I visited our son who lives near Shrewsbury we had a day-trip to Chester and walked around the walls - it's an absolutely stunning place! I hope you are all very happy in your new home!
