Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
We had a lovely cool day of rain, rain and more rain yesterday, the garden really needed it and fingers crossed it was enough to replenish all of the water butts. We used some 'Wildlife attracting' seed boxes in our front borders after Paul spent literally hours and hours pulling out the Ivy and Clover that were tangled between the fir tree roots, we haven't seen anything much coming through, despite us watering every night hopefully the thorough soaking yesterday will get the seeds to germinate! Otherwise the butterflies will be looking at my cauliflowers!! 😂😅
The card above is another of Sonia's inspiration cards for our next Challenge, such a lovely Sentiment in a pretty font, I love the bold colours too. Thank you so much Sonia for giving us more inspiration XXX

Michele thank you so much for a fantastic Magazine review, I do love this magazine, the free gifts always look useful and the magazine is packed with great features. I like the look of John Lockwoods new Magazine Kit, some great 'mixed media ' style sample cards included too. The Daisy cards are all very inspirational, as are the 'circle' cards, what a great way to encourage us to get the best from our 'Basic shape' Dies. I hope that you and Phil get to spend some quality time together this weekend with him being away this past week etc, relax and enjoy time together ❤XXX
Cheryl got a great bargain from a Facebook selling page, a lovely big bundle of Crochet yarn for £6 50 posted! A real bargain Cheryl, pretty colours too, I look forward to seeing what you create with it. XXX
I hope you all have lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
