By Bridge 129, Oxford Canal

Yet another early start and up through the Napton Locks. Not a boat on the moove. Heard a cuckoo in the distance.
I have noticed that we have not seen any wild roses since leaving the lowest part of the GU, must be warmer down there.

It was certainly chilly up here. We moored up by Br 123 for a couple of hours for a snooze and a warm before setting off again.

Then just after Bridge 129 there is a straight stretch of piling and a gap in the hedge, consequently there is a lovely view over the hills and back to Napton. We decided to spend the rest of the day here.
Back to the canal theme with this card.
Starting with a blue base card I stuck down a matted and Cuttlebugged piece of darker blue card. Before I stuck it to the card I wrapped a piece of organza ribbon around it and tied it in a knot.
The photograph was matted onto silver, blue and light green card with a scalloped edge.
The card was finished off with two blue gems.
