Good Morning Ladies,
It sounds like you are all experiencing this unusually good weather for a Bank Holiday weekend, it was so warm out in the garden yesterday afternoon, I did wonder if we were going to see the sun as early morning was very overcast and breezy, but fortunately it really did brighten up, in fact Paul and I were really hot as we attempted to weed under the Leylandii trees in the front garden, I don't think that anyone has had a fork in that soil for a good 10 years, it's a mass of compacted roots, Ivy that has hit the ground and set down roots everywhere, brambles and Clover, the clover must be a really invasive spreading plant, I have never seen it so prolific. We managed to get most of the weeds out, enough to sow a box of Bee attracting Wildflower seeds all over the surface and rake them in, fingers crossed we will get some colour at some point, I quite fancy sowing some wild poppy seeds, my Nan used to grow the most incredible poppies, with really densely packed flowers, they were beautiful.
More of the same for us today, the garden jobs just never stop coming, we didn't intend to do the front garden yesterday, I suggested transplanting some of the Golden Rod to that border and we just carried on weeding. What are you all up to? Did any of you spend the day with family?
I didn't get a card made yesterday as the day just disappeared, so I am sharing some of my older 'Things With Wings' challenge cards in hope that they may inspire some of you, I have included a few different techniques from Gold embossed backgrounds to Inky backgrounds and some layered stamped backgrounds too.
Tomorrow we are starting a New Feature suggested by Michele, this first one is really lovely Fun Fold that Michele has written a tutorial for, so that's something to look forward to.
I hope that you all enjoy the Bank Holiday Monday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
