Long Bank Holiday weekend!

We had a lovely bank holiday weekend at my parents house in Somerset where we were able to relax and enjoy the nice weather and large garden. 
It was a weekend filled with flowers
Camps in the garden.
Riding on Grandad's tractor
and his old metal horse (now 60 years old!).
Swinging on the swing.
Afternoon tea in the garden with Great Gran,
and walks down to the river
where Alex had fun throwing the ball for Juno
who loved to jump in the river after it. A perfect relaxing weekend.
I have managed to do a little crafting since getting back in the form of this Thank you card for my parents which fits with the Less is More challenge for this week, as well as Stamp Something 'with wings', Speedy the cat's friends 'use a hat pin', Pollycraft 'anything goes', stamp with fun 'lace or ribbon', crafty creations 'white space' and CCC 'something begining with C' (in my case Clean and simple). That is all from me for now. Have a great rest of the week everyone.
Love,
Caro
