Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all have some sunshine today, we had another lovely sunny day yesterday although it was really chilly. So we are hoping to be able to get some jobs done in the garden today, not sure what yet as there are plenty of jobs to do. I am hoping to pot on some Geranium cuttings and other plants that we took from Mum's garden before the house was sold, I hope that they all take as they are a bit more special, so that's one job that I want to get done, we also need to clean all the seed trays and pots ready to sow the veg seeds. We usually fill a big trug with watered down Jeyes fluid and give them all a wash out. It's so lovely to see the daffodils coming out we have a few Snow Drops too, it's just a lovely time of the year in the garden.
I have featured a picture of Our Benji above as Becca is doing a 1000km Walk to raise money for the Dog's Trust
Dog's Trust run 21 Rehoming centres to Save over 16,000 Dogs annually
I will leave a link to Becca & Benji's Just Giving Page, I am not pressuring anyone into donating but if any of you would like to just click the link below.
May I introduce you to my version of “Viro”
Kerry Lord has brought out a kit I thought as I have her Imaginarium book and similar yarn I thought I would give it a go It’s probably not exactly the same but it’s close enough for me"
Thanks so much Karen for sharing Viro with us xxx
Michele's Magazine Review
Finally I have a magazine review for you.
Papercraft Essentials has a really cute gift this month-Woodland collection which includes topi& papers.
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
So much inspiration & ideas using the free gift.
How striking are these cards-perfect for children.
Great article explaining how to create your own backgrounds using photo paper & inks.
Stunning mixed media project.
Dry embossing on vellum-this technique produces some really lovely designs.
Some much needed ideas for men’s card.
More ideas-I’m sure we’ve all got stamps or dies similar to those used in this feature.
What a gorgeous card, made using the stamps in this months issue of Creative Stamping, as shown.
Interesting technique-embossing using sequins to create the pattern on your card, you could use Diecuts to create an embossed background too.
Colour block stamping effect-this technique creates a lovely background.
That’s all for this week so
Thanks so much Michele, it must be so frustrating waiting for your delayed magazines, especially when you are paying for the privilege of getting it a bit earlier than everyone else. There are some great features in this issue, I love the feature on backgrounds and that lovely Mixed Media project by Tracy Evans. Now I have the Creative Stamping Magazine and I'm not over keen on this month's stamps, they are like Zentangled designs, not really my thing but I might have a play and see if I change my mind. Thanks again for taking the time to write this weeks review. I am looking forward to the next one already XXX
Ladies I hope that you all have an enjoyable weekend and that you can get out in the garden,
Love and hugs to all of you,
