Weston Hall Bridge, Turner's Green

We awoke to a fairly heavy frost, so hung around until 0830 before setting off. As the locks leak so badly, most of them were against us, but we did cross paths with 2 boats, which helps. Still the 19 locks were done in 2 1/2 hours and mostly in sunshine, and we turned right into the Grand Union Canal, stopping at the first bit of piling we could find. Time for a snooze, now, I think to get over all those locks.

Having said I don't often stamp, here is one I made some time ago. The stamp came free with a magazine. I tend to stamp in the colour I want and then emboss with clear embossing powder (you don't get the little flecks that way (and no matter what I used to get rid of the static, I always manage to get some!)). I cut the image out and matted on white and gold card and then onto pink, embroidered, handmade paper before sticking the lot onto gold card before adding it to the base card. The sentiment was cut from a third impression and is the wording from the side of the stamp. This was also matted up in the same way.
