A card and some photographs

Hello Everyone. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas Day. Sad to see that many in England had awful weather that left floods and damage in a lot of place in the south of the country. We were basking in sunshine but it was very cold--still is today with a heavy frost.

At Collage Obsession the theme is Love and Peace

I made this card for a friend who lost her husband a few weeks ago and didn't want to celebrate Christmas. I thought I would put a letter inside this and send it to her now that Christmas Day is over. It is a Gecko Galz image with a backing, stuck onto black card with some gold peel-off and a flower added.

There were just the two of us yesterday so went for a walk along the seafront and took a flask of coffee and  chocolates to enjoy in the open air.

Here are a few photographs that Vic took-well he took loads but you wouldn't want to see all of them

The harbour was almost full with no boats going out to sea

Not sure what type of goose this is but it was quite happy to pose on the harbour wall

The cliffs in the distance--we usually walk as far as that but didn't yesterday

The building on the left dates back to Victorian times and is now a very nice place for meals and drinks. It even has a night club and children's area. We went in there on Christmas Eve for just one drink but it was very cold with the wind blowing onto it so we came straight back home again. They weren't open yesterday and not many other places were which is unusual for Bridlington as there are usually places open for breakfast and coffee at least even on Christmas Day That is me wandering along in front behind the waste bin.

Hope you have a really lovely day today and thank you for dropping in to Jumbled Crafts.
