A fabulous image that can only mean summer,wouldn't it be great to be able to go away in a caravan and stop anywhere you wished,a beautiful card Jenny

Beautiful design Jenny and such a lovely image- reminds of when we were newly married (and had very little money!) we would go on holiday with friends and their children- they had the caravan which we would squeeze into for meals when it rained (which it often did!)- they slept in the caravan and we had a tent...they were happy days!!
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

This is a brilliant card Jenny and very nostalgic for me!! My Mum and Dad had one just like that (inherited from my Nan and Pop)except it was blue and cream. It was very posh and had a name Bon Terra (Good Land Goodland was our surname!!) Many happy holidays spent in it at West Bay where it stayed all year round. Hope you are keeping well xx
