Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend, we were blessed with good weather, the only problem with that is that it is too easy to get carried away with 'a few simple jobs'! We got Paul's penstemon's all repotted and the new ones I had ordered potted up too, I had ordered some Petunia's in some gorgeous mixed colours a few weeks ago and they arrived on Friday so they got potted up too. I forgot to put my geraniums in the greenhouse last autumn so I lost most of them but 3 survived, so they got treated to some new soil with some fertiliser in, we have the most invasive Antirrhinums (Snap Dragons) I have ever known, they seem to end up in pots they have no business being in, so I managed to get them pulled out. I was hoping to pot on my Basil and Coriander plants but my body said No! Paul managed to finally get the last of the summer house taken down so we both felt like we had a productive day, I felt sorry for him though as I was calling him for help every half hour or so, we had a lovely lunch in the garden, I think lunch in the sun makes Ham/cheese salad sandwiches taste so much nicer, the bread was the star of the show a local gentleman makes bread and gives any profit to the church roof, it started out as a hobby but now his weekly bread delivery is very popular, I wasn't expecting one this week but he popped by yesterday to see how we were all doing and left us a large granary loaf, still warm! It just tastes so much more than shop bought bread.
Janet I hope that you have arrived safely my lovely, no doubt your lovely friends had it all ready for your arrival, now put your feet up and relax my lovely. XXX
Today's card is a perfect example of this weeks challenge, I made this one in July 2019, I will leave the description below:
I took a piece of Botanical Butterfly Dsp, this particular sheet is completely black and white, therefore to 'Spotlight' a piece of it I just coloured it in with pencils, leaving the rest of the background black and white. So the Butterfly is the spotlight area of my card.
I know we aren't doing 'spotlight' but Monochrome with a splash of colour is kind of the same thing, so I thought this was a great example, I was fully intending to make a card after gardening, however after 'supervising' Paul making lasagne for dinner I was totally spent, so a throwback card it is. I know already that there will be no garden adventures for this body tomorrow so I will be sat in my craft room.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
