Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all stayed safe and that Christoph didn't cause you any damage. I think it missed us but the wind was extremely strong late afternoon and early evening yesterday, we had a fair bit of rain too, so I guess the Thames will break its banks for the 3rd time this year, the poor farmers must tear their hair out, although I will say that the crop that he had in the fields that ran along side the river looked like they did really well last year, so maybe it doesn't cause too much damage. One thing that does surprise me is the amount of little left behind after the floods have gone, the drains and ditches along side the roads are full of cans and bottles and drink cups, it looks so awful. We are actually having a real problem with 'Fly Tipping in our village, there is a layby that is just at the entrance to the village and when Lucy took me for a test drive in her new car the other day some lazy swine had dumped about 20 or more black bin liners full of rubbish, they were both in the ditch and on the verges, I have suggested putting a sign up saying that there is a camera (even though there isn't) hopefully the thought of the huge fine and thought of being caught might stop them, they will probably just take it somewhere else. Rant Warning: If our Council didn't make it so awkward to book a slot at the Waste Recycling Centre (Tip as we call it), you have to take evidence that you live in the area a book a particular spot etc, if people could just pitch up and drop off they might be less likely to drop it in laybys, I mean if you have it bagged up and in your car you are half way there! (rant over)!
Today's cards were designed by Cheryl, the cards were made with leftover bits of backing card that Cheryl used for her last Challenge card. I have to say Cheryl it is a really pretty design. Cheryl has used toppers that look like they are actually stitched, I love the muted colours and the designs are so beautiful Cheryl.
Thank you so much for sharing them with us XXX
Ladies I hope that 'Christoph' misses your area and you stay dry and safe,
Sending love and hugs your way,
