~ Back Home! ~

Took a week's break and headed to Cornwall to stay in this:

We went 'glamping'. Rather than stay in a tent, we lived in a tipi. It was big inside but due to the chilly weather we have been having, it was kinda cold. Luckily there was a wood burner inside which we used to the max! There was a cooker inside too which we cooked for most days. There was also a double bed and two 3 more single mattresses (so you can imagine the space inside). We didn't hang around during the day as we went exploring different parts of Cornwall. We visited quite a few places such as Falmouth, Newquay, Padstow, Penzance and St Ives. My favs were St Ives & Padstow. We even did the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow on our bikes (yup, we brought 4 bikes with us).

The tipi is located on a farm and the farm has also another site, Orchard Yurt, again equipped with the necessary stuff for camping. Hence the word 'glamping'... camping with glamour! There is an indoor area with electricity and all the mod cons inside. We could get wifi too but it was extremely slow. Don't even try to download anything! 

Would I recommend it? Most definitely but in much better warmer conditions. When we arrived, that night we stayed, it was extremely cold. We survived and we had a lot of fun. I didn't think I could stand extreme cold but my body coped! Thank god for thermals! TTFN!

~ 365 Cards: Day 99 ~

Today's challenge is called 'Shapely' i.e. making a card which isn't a square or rectangle. Well, inspiration struck and I came up with this: 

Beth Rimmer: Junque Journal
Font: Hole Hearted

I had this image in my digi stash and though it would make a great shapely card! TTFN!
