This is a short post to share a Hallowe’en card I made a few years ago for a friend. It was around the time I first saw and loved Shaun of the Dead. Five years later and it’s still my favourite film. I used a template from Zombie Pumpkins and raised the cutout to put Happy Halloween confetti behind it. I stuck on acetate too to make a window from which you could view the confetti. Needless to say, my friend loved it.

The Cotswolds or Bust
I apologise for the break in transmission; I haven’t been well lately. We did however manage to get away for the May Bank Holiday. We went to the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire, visited several of the lovely picturesque villages there. Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water were the best ones for kitsch homeware shopping and afternoon teas. Here are some pictures from our weekend away.
