Good Monday Morning Ladies,
It sounds like you all had the lovely sunshine that we were treated to yesterday, both Becca and the Girls said how busy they had been at work, the Wildlife Park was super busy both days despite numbers being restricted to keep everyone Covid safe. Becca and I were laughing because there had been no point in my life that I have felt desperate enough to have a drink that I would sit in my coat with a blanket around me shivering so that I could have a glass of wine, they have put up a big marquee in the pub garden to fit in as many people as possible to make opening up a viable option, with the evenings being so cold Becca and I both thought that the pub would be quiet but we couldn't have been more wrong, it was that busy that there were no seats left and Becca had to virtually throw them out at closing time, she is struggling with being so cold bless her, she suffers with Reynaud's and her poor hands and feet really suffer. My Sophie suffers too but she gets really nasty chilblains, I bought her some battery operated heated socks at Christmas which really help when she wears them, both my Mum and her Dad got really bad chilblains too so it must be a hereditary thing.
Paul and I had a lovely weekend getting jobs done in the garden, Matt popped over for an hour or two yesterday too which was lovely. We have cleared so many weeds that the composters are all full, so I think that we are going to have a little bonfire to burn some of the dry stuff, thats the only problem when you are dealing with areas that haven't been touched for years. It was lovely to read that some of you got to enjoy the sunshine too.
Michele mentioned yesterday that she got carried away making a card for her friend, well lucky for us she was kind enough to share it with us. It's an amazing 'Pop-Up' Box card that showcases some of nature's cutest creations, I love to see birds featured on cards, especially at this time of year, the delicate floral backing paper that come with the kit make the perfect back drop too. Such a lovely little kit that includes absolutely everything you need to create the 'pop-up' even down to the acetate.
"Just made this for a friend’s birthday-she’s always rescuing wild animals!. I used a magazine freebie from ages ago. I’ve hardly used anything out of the kit so I can make loads more. "
I have included a picture of the kit that Michele used above.
Thank you so much Michele for sharing your amazing card with us, your friend will love it !! XXX
Ladies I hope that sun shines for you again today and that you get outside to enjoy it.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
