Fradley Junction, Coventry Canal
The contrast in traffic on the Coventry compared to the Birmingham and Fazeley is like the M6 and a byway. Boats every whichway.
Tried mooring in Fradley village, but it was too shallow, so we came on to the junction. We needed a few bits and bobs so I walked up to the shop, but it was closed. Summer not here yet?
Because there were no locks today I had an easy ride, but still, I had a nap this afternoon. I blame the heat from the fire. The boat is so cozy.
I canabalised a commercial invitation card for this one, cutting out the figures and splats from the front of the card. Some white card was Cuttlebugged with a brick folder and I swiped several ink pads over it to give it a grungy feel, then added the happy birthday banner, the splats and the figures. This was then fixed to the front of a white card blank.
