Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – Winds of Change, Beautiful Blends Markers Card
I fell for this stamp set the moment I saw it.
There are a couple of reasons – the bike caught my eye, I have a similar shaped bike with a basket on the front and I adore cycling with Chris and the children whenever I can. It’s definitely the ‘year of the bike’ for me!
I also love the windmill because there is one just a few short strides from my house and I pass it every time I go out of my front door!
Whittlesey is an old old market town and where I live backs onto the old Bakery that was on the main road through the town, and that had the windmill in its grounds, and that, as I said, is just a few strides away from my door.
There aren’t any sails sadly, a health and safety danger, but the main body of it and the top are there. It’s privately owned and being very slowly put back to its former glory, however there is a preservation order on some rare bats that live in it, so little can be done to it.
However it’s absolutely amazing to live so close to such a stunning piece of historical architecture. Curiously, I didn’t notice it (how?!) when Chris and I came to view the house – too excited I think – but it was quite the lovely surprise the day we moved in. And a move 200+ miles from West to East across the UK certainly was a change for us.
So I hope you like my card and the reason for the windmill on it.
