Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and having a nice weekend. More garden duties for us, I said to Paul yesterday that it seems like an endless task, there is so much to do, partly because we didn't get to do any preparation work that we intended to do in Autumn last year because of Paul's surgeries and strict recovery rules. Instead of having all the vegetable plot weeded and ready for planting we still needed to take out the finished crops from last year, plus the weeds that have grown since, the month of rain in May didn't help, it has made the soil more managable tbough. Paul cut our back lawn in April but like everyone else it was too wet to mow it during May, it was almost 10 inches tall in some areas, Ithink that's partly because the 'lawn' is more weed than grass! We also have a problem with 'Leatherjackets' (crane fly lava) but that is not something that we are going to pay to put right, we will manage and maintain it but thats it.
What have you all got planned?
The quote above always makes me think of my Mum, I remember going to extra trouble to make her a really special card, she opened it and said 'wow you are too tight to buy me a card I see" 🥲😂I laugh when I think about it now but my goodness she had that so wrong!!!
Michele's Magazine Review
Papercraft Essentials has a great free gift this month.
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
Just look at all the ideas using the free gift-from cards to 3D projects.
Such lovely cards using the free downloads.
Some lovely nautical themed cards.
An easy to make storage idea.
Great feature using Expanding Mousse which gives a great, textured finish.
WOW-one layer stencilling. This looks fantastic.
Some really great inspiration here for cards for men.
That’s all for this week so
Thanks Michele for a fantastic Review, so many good features in this edition. I do laugh when I see records and record players, I remember my girls asking what records actually were when they saw our record collections when we moved house, they had absolutely no idea what they could be, when we explained it blew their minds, I had to explsin Cassette Tapes too, which wasn't easy, lots of laughter though, we couldn’t actually show them as we dont have a record player anymore, actually tjat might be an idea for Father’s Day!
The 'Back to Basics ' feature is really good with some fantastic ideas for Father’s day cards. A couple of good Fun Fold cards too. The feature 'Upcycling' tins for craft storage is good too. I love the nautical themed cards too.
Thanks again Michele for making time over the last Bank Holiday to write the review. I am so grateful for any suppot with the blog. XXX
Sending lots of love and hugs to all of you,
