A lovely day with the Grandchildren.

Well it's been another lovely day weather wise here in the West Midlands today, so we decided to pay a visit to a local attraction. I have lived in this area all of my life and yet had never visited the lovely Bantock House and Gardens which is just outside the centre of Wolverhampton. We took our Grandchildren with us and Elliot enjoyed the playground with his Granddad while Jessica and myself went around the lovely old house.  We had lunch in the courtyard of the cafe in the lovely sunshine which was really good.  So if you are ever in the area Bantock House is certainly worth a visit. It's a shame it took me so long to find out.
Now I have a little card to share with you that I made for my BIL and his wife for their Wedding Anniversary which is today.

The image is a Penny Black coloured with Whisper pens.  The patterned paper is by Wild Rose and the sentiment was created in Word and cut out using a nestie die.
I am entering this into the
Carisma Cardz challenge - Anything Goes
Art Impressions stamps - Lots of Dots

Well that's about it from me tonight.
Thanks for stopping by

  1. Lovely card Pat, I love the embossed nestie and the layout.
    Sounds like you had a lovely day out. I think we'll take a visiit there. Aston Hall is another lovely day out. We went last week and the manor house and gardens are beautiful.
