Hi Honey……..I’m Home & DCM's Teen Spirit

Did you miss me?

I went off last Thursday for a few days fun in the snow to Norway and what a fabby time I had. Only trouble was I came home with more than I bargained for…..a bad attack of sinusitis and a mild chest infection. It didn’t stop me enjoying my break though and I’ve now been to the doctors and the antibiotics are beginning to kick in so I’m feeling a bit better now.

We landed in Torp (southern Norway) and made a little detour up to Oslo so we could see the Viking Ships that had been excavated and rebuilt over 900 years later.

It was absolutely amazing to see all that wood carving so well preserved and so worth the extra hour and a half on our original three hour journey to Gol where we were staying.
This was our Hotel and the view from our room.

Saturday was spent at a wild life park up in the mountains somewhere. I totally forgot to make a note of the names of the places we went to but will find out from John who is the guy who invited us out there.
I came nose to none with my first Moose which made my weekend especially as this was one I the animals we failed to see while visiting Canada a few years ago.
We also saw some Lynx and Wolves among other things but no Bears….they were all sleeping…..wise decision when you see how much snow there was up there!

Sunday was another exciting day because we visited the highest inhabited village in Norway to do a bit of Skidooing……Ooooo this was fun……and cold…….but fun!

Then there was just time for a quick look around Gol itself and a spot of shopping before facing the long journey back to the airport on Monday. All in all it was a great weekend only slightly spoiled but the flight being delayed due to the storms over here.

Anyway, after all the excitement of the weekend and being ill for a few days after I finally managed to make my card for our Daring Cardmakers
Friday Challenge.

Now, this week it's Rachel's first time to set the dare;"Well I thought we have had plenty of flowers and hearts and girly things so I would like some cards with some teen spirit please."

My card was a very quick one I’m afraid.
It’s using papers from the DCWV ‘All dressed Up’ stack.

The handbag, shoes and coat hanger are QuickKutz dies. The Alphabet is Sizzix ‘Hunky Dory’ and the dress was cut from a template that was in a magazine a little while ago and layered with 3d foam (sorry, can’t remember which mag.)
