Tower Cottage and a Card for a Cause.

 {Weekend Away Photos and Diary with a Card for a cause}

- After work, packed and set off for Yorkshire
- Sat and rocked in some the new comfy chairs, with a hot chocolate, 'In with the Flynns' and 'Mrs Browns Boys' Catch up with Ed's Mum.

- Snuggles and Kisses in Bed with Beanie the dog.
- Breakfast with Ed and his Mum
- A spot of shopping in Doncaster
- 2-3 hour journey to Warkworth settle into 'Tower Cottage' on Castle Street
- Drove to find a grocery store, stocked up on food and drink for the week away
- Snuggles on the Sofa with Ed and the 4th series of 'The Big Bang Theory'

- Breakfast, head off for a walk along the beach, which turned out more to be an adventure. 4 hours later. Knackered and bus back to cottage.
- Cosy Night in, fell asleep on the sofa. Dinner and bed.

- Headed into the town of Alnwick
- Headed off home, 6 hour drive.
Was good to be home, we had a great time, but felt we had used our time best we could on the Saturday, on our 'Adventure' laughter, frustration, getting lost, finding hope again hehe. The Weather started turning nasty so decided both that we would head home.

When I saw that Saturated Canary's Challenge blog was supporting such a great cause, I had to create something!
For every entry into the challenge (up to 500), Saturated Canary will donate $1 to Susan G Kolmen for the Cure in Jen's honor.
This is my first white on white effect card so don't be too harsh on me ;) But as I love colour I wanted to add something that would stand out and be rather striking against the white. So I decided on Snow White as she is bright and so fun to colour. I also found some pom poms in my stash I thought I would never use.

Backing Paper - White Card Embossed with Universal Embossing Folder - Venus and a dotty folder.
Digi - Snow White by Saturated Canary
Promarkers: Cool Grey 1, Black, Dusky Pink, Royal Blue, Yellow, Buttercup, Poppy, Coca and Pine
