A New Home

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well. We have had a very busy couple of days. Yesterday, we visited Bothwell Castle. It's the only thing that all the kids enjoy together now. Jack likes the history, Kim enjoys the quietness and Wee Steven loves to climb and explore. There was a mini
trebuchet yesterday which was set up with millions of wee pebbles around it and directed at a holi in the wall. Wee Steven was in his element - he would've stayed and played with it for hours, lol. Sadly, I never had the camera with me, though. We joined Historic Scotland when we were there so today...Linlithgow Palace. I love Linlithgow - it's a beautiful wee town - and the kids love the palace, loch and, of course, the park. So, tonight, I will be lucky if my legs will carry me up the stairs to my bed,lol

Anyway, onto the card. My aunt has just moved into a new home so I made this for her.

I started the card with a Pepper and Friends clear stamp but I don't like the wat it stamps so changed my mind. I have no idea where this one came from - from a lot I bought at a boot sale once...I think...was actually there to sell off all the kids stuff they no longer wanted - don't think I came home with any money though after I found the stamp stand, lol.
