From the heart…

 

 

 

Hello everyone, hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend

We’ve had a proper mixed bag of sunshine and heavy downpours here, it doesn’t know what to do and I‘m dizzy from putting the washing out and bringing it back in!

I’m waiting for the sun to come back out so I can finish the jet washing and then get some bedding plants in and all my pots ready. Keith cuts the grass and the hedges but it is definitely under sufferance, he doesn’t like gardening at all so it’s my job. I enjoy it apart from when Manny tries to help and runs off with all my stuff, he just want me to chase him and throw things for him to fetch and he never gets bored of it! I love playing with him really, it’s great when the weather is nice and we can spend the day outside

I’ve made this card using some gorgeous goodies from the Ribbon Girl, I’ve been trying different styles as you may have noticed and I love this shabby chic sort of look (that’s what I call it anyway)

Mary has some beautiful new papers in stock and these are from a Craft & You 6x6 pad called Rose Garden

 

Ribbon Girl Rose Garden

 

The card is another 4x4 square, I am liking this smaller size at the moment. All the Ribbon Girl products can be found in their store…  tulle, stickles, white rose organza ribbon, cream aster, blue sweetheart blossom, button twine, 6mm ivory pearl flatbacks, 25mm cream cotton lace, and 25mm faux hessian

The sentiment stamp is Hero Arts, the heart circle Sizzix and the small hearts Simon Says Stamp. Not sure about the butterflies, I have so many that I’ve forgotten…  but you all have butterflies I’m sure!

Hope you like it, thanks so much for all your lovely comments. I’m trying to reply as you leave them now just to acknowledge but I will try and visit all your blogs this week and see what you have been up to

Thanks for stopping by Smile

  11. This is lovely Anne, I'm just catching up after a week on holiday and it's nice to have a long weekend to ease myself back into things! At least it's been sunny so I've been in the garden myself. I'm not sure I'd call jet washing that relaxing though! :0) Hope you've had a good weekend sweetie. xx
