Thailand and a pink and girly card

Aonang Beach in Krabi

I am back home again really, and no I haven’t been gone all month! Before I show you a card I will show some photos and tell you of my trip to Thailand.

Together with a few friends (some new) we travelled all over Thailand. We started in beautiful Krabi where we spent some on a longtail boat visiting seven different small island, swimming in the sunset, snorkingling in a cave and had a bbq on the beach in the dark.

Phi Phi Island

The following day we took a ferry from Krabi to Phi Phi and spent a few hours on the beach enjoying brilliant sunshine and salty water in an enchantingly beautiful lagune. It really is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! Then we took the ferry from Phi Phi and spent a couple of lazy days in Phuket before we flew up to Chiang Mai.

Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai

In Chiang Mai we went to the night market, we did elephant trecking (which included bathing them, feeding them and riding them for about 45 minutes), and we visisted Tiger Kingdom where we got to be together with tigers. We also got to cuddle them, even the big ones, and watch them play around us. I will post one of the photos of me cuddling a tiger in one of the new posts! What an experience!

The southern beach in Hua Hin

After Chiang Mai we flew down to Bangkok and spent the day doing some shopping before heading down to Hua Hin. We drove through some pretty nasty weather and the storm had knocked over lots of trees, knocked out the power and there was a lot of water in the streets (about 30cm or so high). Thankfully the weather cleared up just in time for the wedding so the couple did indeed get married on the beach. It was beautiful! The following the day the sun can out to play all day again and we visisted the monkeys by the temple on Monkey Mountain.

Bangkok by night

We then drove back to Bangkok where we spent another day and a half shopping and just having a good time before flying back home. Apart from the day we went to Hua Hin, the little rain we had was during the night. The rest of the time we mostly had brilliant sunshine! What a dream holiday it was!

After I got back I have been a bit unwell so I haven’t been able to really update my blog again until now. I shall keep updating it frequently again, though, from now, and I have some exiting news to share at the weekend! This week I have dug out all the crafting materials again and started on the massive task that is Christmas cards so expect a few of those over the following month!

Right, card! Today I’m showing you a card that I made a little while ago. It is a tri-fold card made with a blank from Witch Craft UK. I have used papers from Papermania, and small yellow smarties looking buttons from Craftwork Cards. The main image is a pre-coloured topper by The Hobby House, which I have edged with a Martha Stewart Puncher. The leaves are also made with a Martha Stewart puncher and the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
