What a busy week!I

have been so busy in the garden, I had to weed again and I have planted four hanging baskets and all the borders! about two hundred plants in all. I thought I had finished for a few weeks but as I passed the greenhouse this morning..... I noticed the tomato plants need going in!!
On Sunday, I decided to make a new top cover for the swing. When I got the material out that I bought a few weeks ago, I found there was not enough so then I had to go to Aberkhan again! I love that shop...... so much material and so little time to sew lol
I have also sat in the shade in the garden and read two books....I love being outside in this super weather, it did feel cold though this morning at 15 degrees after a week of 26 degrees.
I have so many jobs half done I don't know where to start lol.....I have two special birthdays in June and I have cards and presents half made.... I really must get going, Margaret, my neighbour asked me for 4 cards as well, so this is the first one for her......

Old PM papers
Stella digi from Bugaboo
Coloured with promarkers
Punched flowers glittered with stickles
Buttons and gems from stash

I am entering the following challenges;

Creative Inspirations ------- anything goes

Dream Valley -------- Humour

Oldie but a goodie --------- Anything goes (everything on the card is over 12 months old lol)

Digi stamps 4 joy --------use buttons

Well, I really must go and sit outside for a while as I have been varnishing a project and the smell is giving me a headache!
Thank you for your visit and have a good week

Hugs Tilly x

Jeez Tilly, I felt all proud and chuffed with me-self when I went on Friday to my local garden centre, spent all of 3 minutes choosing three plants and literally stuck them out by my front door.....they haven't even got plant pots yet!!! Now you are making me feel decidedly less green fingered than I did 2 minutes ago before reading your post! lol. That reminds me......plants need watering don't they??! Alan Titchmarsh I may not be but when it comes to sun worshipping, Im pretty much up there with nudging Helios or Apollo off the Sun gods thrown, lol. Its been beautiful in Northern Ireland but alas the rains come tomorrow...blub blub...it was too good to last! lol. I love this card, its fantastic and the sentiment is brilliant......and yet surprisingly true, lol. Lee x
