Good Morning Ladies,
We are bathed in sunshine once again, although we shouldn't get too excited as I think the temperatures are set to drop again next week, so get out and make the most of it.
I ordered a collection of 72 perennials at the weekend for the bargain price of £16.99, they are from Thomson & Morgan so should be good quality, if I can find the offer code again would any of you like it? they come as plug plants. I am hoping that they will add some colour to the back garden as there are no flowering shrubs at all, apart from Lavenders that we have grown. We will have to 'spruce' up the front borders too as the village has entered the 'Best Kept Village' competition!!
Now onto today's card, this time we have shades of orange, the two colours I have used for this card are So Saffron and Crushed Curry, I used the Daisy Lane stamp set to randomly stamp the background and stamp some of the daisies that I then punched out, using two daisies for each flower, I stamped one in set in Crushed Curry too. I arranged them is a cluster of three and then punched some sprigs to add some extra foliage (as I couldn't use green for leaves). I matted and layered and the pretty card base is Phil Martins latest die collection 'Charmed Rectangles', my sentiment was also cut out with and layered onto labels cut with the same die collection. I have to say that despite being limited with colour etc I really liked how this card turned out xxx
Paul is going to be to'ing and fro'ing today as he needs to take our car to the garage as the exhaust is blowing, it sounds like we have a V8 super car engine in our old bird 😂😂. We are at that stage that she really isn't worth spending a lot of money on but we need her to keep going until we find a replacement, luckily John is a fantastic mechanic and he said yesterday that he would do his best to patch her up for now, there is nothing more valuable than a good honest mechanic. Paul also needs to take Matt's truck for an MOT too, so he will have a busy morning, luckily its only 5 minutes up the road.
I will be in my craftroom, I'd like to get a little bit of time in the garden too as it is supposed to be nice weather today.
Sending love and hugs to all of you
