Broad Bulk Bridge, Birmingham & Fazeley Canal

 We got back to the boatyard after a swim at the hotel and left after 10 o'clock.  We got water at Fazeley Junction and then set off up the Curdworth locks.  The sign on the lock gate said that the volunteer lock keeper is usually on duty on Tuesdays.  What day was it?  Monday.  S***!

After a very long day (6 hours!!!) we moored up within a stone's throw of Milnworth ready for the long slog up to Birmingham tomorrow.

An early attempt of colouring the embossing, but rubbing an ink pad over over the embossing folder before running the card through the embossing machine.  I think it worked.

The embossed panel was then matted onto gold card and then an even larger piece of yellow card.  Some yellow grossgrain ribbon was wrapped around this panel and a bow tied around it.

Three silk daffodils were then added to the bottom right hand corner.
