Well our lovely long weekend is over and we had a great time away. Fortunately the weather played ball and it only started getting cold yesterday afternoon when we where on our way home. A lot of time was spend fishing, the men folk that is, but nothing caught was big enough to make it to our pan so fortunately we, the women folk, over catered as usual. Despite eating heartily I feel like we brought home more than we set out with!!!

The new cue word at Addicted to CAS is

I don't really use banners on my cards very much, in fact I can only think of one occasion when I did. Fortunately I had a photo of it in my 'still to be displayed' stash so here it is.

The banners are hand cut and I drew the string holding them together with a fine liner. I adapted the bike as the one on the pattern is decidedly girly.

My inspiration
