Spanish clues and a baby card

Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela de Vigo

Happy Saturday everyone and as promised, here is the first of the clues for those of you who want to try your hand at winning one of my candy selections......four of them on offer and details of how to enter in the post at the top of my blog.

This first one is a bit tough, but I promise you they get easier, this place was a very difficult one to find clues for. It's a Spanish coastal City on the tip of Northern Spain but just a few miles for Portugal's Atlantic coast, beginning with 'V' ending in 'O' - it's the largest City in Galicia with a population of 300,000 and is the site if the magnificent cathedral pictured above........the clues in the name !


Now onto Allsorts new challenge which has been set by the lovely Amanda this week and she would like to see cards for a baby or child.

Before I tell you about my card, don't forget there is still a few days left to join in our brand new monthly challenge Penny Black at Allsorts where the theme this month is A Burst of Summer Colour.

I have gone Penny Black again, but the stamp is from an unmounted set and I have lost the code I am afraid, but I am pretty sure it is still available as a wood mounted stamp if not in the unmounted set.

I coloured the image with Copics, added a border punched with Martha Stewart embossed scallop from a piece of DP from stash, a couple of stamped butterflies and a computer generated greeting.

Your next candy clue will be on Monday 26th as we are at sea tomorrow.
