Soooo Distressed!!!

Hi, hope you all has a fab weekend,
only 2 more early rises for Mac,
she breaks up for summer on Wed.
We've got nearly 7 weeks to fill, lots of things planned,
she's going horse riding for the day with her friend Holly,
Mac hasn't been for a while,
I'm sure she'll enjoy it!
We're going to try & go to Burghley "garden of surprise"
being as she was poorly when they went from school
we're also going to try to lots of "free" things as everything is sooo expensive.
We don't have a main holiday in the summer, we go in October as Darren can't have any time off during July ~ Sept and he works until 7 most days & every other weekend, (that's agriculture for you, but I'm sure he's luckier than most in that line of work) - So we have to "change" Macs hours so she stays up later otherwise she doesn't see much of him!
Sorry for waffling ~ on to my card!
I have use:
Belles n Whistles ~ not sure what she's called
Great Impressions ~ Cooking Background
Basic Grey ~ Capella & Kraft
SU Cardstock ~ Soft Suede
Tag from stash
Water-coloured ~ Distress inks
I have entered the following challenges:

Belles n Whistles ~ So Distressing

Hi Fleur

That's a lot of weeks to fill, but they say it's going to be a good summer so lots of outside activities.

I was brought up on a farm so know all about late holidays. But on the positive side they are less expensive then.

That new widget is scary or what, have I missed that many of your posts, griefy me.

Nearly forgot what brought me here, your lovely card, love it.
