Above Povey Lock - Llangollen Canal

 Good things about the Llangollen Canal:
  •  It's pretty
  • It's not too long
  • There is lots and lots of piling for mooring onto
Not so good things about the Llangollen Canal:
  • The by-washes
  • The leaky locks
  • The lift bridges
  • Grindley Brook staircase
  • The number of boats
  • The current
 I really don't know why we come.  Well, yes I do, it is really beautiful and fairly peaceful once the boats have stopped moving.

It was the usual 7 o'clock start, but we were finished by 11.  And, only 7 locks and 2 lift bridges.

The women in David's life!   ps: I'm the little fat one in the distance.

This type of card is called an easel card because it stands up a bit like an easel, get it?

You take an ordinary card blank and fold one half in half again and fold it in on itself. 

I decorated the front parts with black patterned paper, matted onto black card and added a topper which was matted onto black and white card and a pink bow with a gem and stuck it to the middle of the card.

The base has a panel of the black patterned paper matted onto black card and some pleated pink ribbon tied around it with some silver lace.  This was then stuck down onto the inside of the card base along with a white matted panel for writing the greetings on.

Because the ribbon sticks up it stops the front of the card from folding flat.
