Hello there! Another post from me - what in the world is going on?

While in London I was very lucky to have a craft day with Sandie. We made a few cards between us and one of them was one especially for the new challenge at ATCAS.

Well, I am the hostess for this challenge so it was lucky that I was able to even create something :)

Here is the code word I have chosen for you -
I hope to see over at the challenge blog playing along.

Here is my DT card -


The only details you have for this card (as far as cardstock, stamps and ink goes) is that I made it with Sandie using Sandie's stash ;)

Our Sponsor for this challenge is 


and the prize up for grabs is 7 digis from the store!!

We also have the pleasure of welcoming Anita back as our Guest Designer for this challenge.

Right, more photos - now from Spain.

I touched down in Spain on Tuesday afternoon and received a huge welcome at the airport from Florence and Freddie. 

Wednesday I was treated to a tour of the village -

Yep, that's me having a hot chocolate

this is just one of the cute streets we passed

 All my old mates outside the supermarket

 Another gorgeous street

Town Hall

The view of half of the village from a hiking trail

Then Thursday was a day trip to Torre Del Mar - a pretty town on the coast

 Starting off at the markets

 I have my own shoe line (wink wink). I couldn't believe how many shoes were called 'Kylie' lol

 Me and not so bad looking police officers (mmmmhmmmm, snap!)

 The boardwalk along the beach

 Gorgeous view!

 The marina

 The gorgeous sheep along the road as we wound back up the mountain

A spectacular view back down the mountain

Tomorrow there is a local market in the village for us to have a look at. Then we will be having a couple of relaxing days around the house. I'm a bit worried that Freddie is going to put me to work in the garden.... at least the sun has been shining and the weather stunning during the day. 

Adios Amigos!

Thanks so much for looking xx
