Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Firstly I would like to wish a safe journey home to both Janet & Sonia, I hope you are both returning home relaxed and unwound. We had Sophie & Lucy back home last night after their few days away, it was lovely to sit and listen to their adventures of fending for themselves for a few days, I always forget that at their age we were living together and running a home!
Sue and I had a lovely lunch out on Wednesday, Sue chose a Chinese restaurant, the food was lovely, after that we popped to a pet shop as Sue needed Bird seed while we were there we got to admire some beautiful Birds, the colours of which you wouldn't believe were natural, they were Kakarikies from New Zealand, they ranged from peacock blues and greens to the most vibrant yellows and greens, one had so many colours on it it didn't look real. It took me back to childhood when my dad had an aviary in the garden filled with brightly coloured budgies, I thought that they had gone out of fashion but apparently not, there were quite a few people in when we were there. After the pet shop we drove around the corner to a garden centre, it was a cross between the one really well priced one that Paul and I have been going to and fancy garden centre, there were as many Ornaments and decorative things as there were plants. I did manage to get a Squirrel and Large Bird proof bird feeder for £14.99 though, which is a really good price, we have a huge problem with crows or rooks stealing all the bird food and the smaller birds don't get a look in, so now we have something for everyone!
Thanks so much for a lovely afternoon Sue XXX
Our Next Challenge
I thought that it might be nice to have a Jubilee themed challenge, 70 years on the throne is a Huge achievement after all.
We do have choices thankfully, we don't to stick to the Red White & Blue that are traditional at these events as the Queen chose Purple and Platinum as the Official colours for the Emblem.
''Two colours make up the emblem of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – platinum and Pantone 3515 C. The platinum colour represents Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne, whilst the purple colour is synonymous with royalty.''
That shade of purple is above, but for the purposes of our Challenge we can use any shade of Purple
Also don't think that you have to use Red, White & Blue together, you can use the colours on their own if you choose or combinations of them.
It's something different for a change, I hope that you all enjoy taking part, I look forward to seeing your Journal pages or cards.
I hope that you all have a lovely Friday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
