good morning.........


Well, this little bit of sunshine is great.......... yesterday, I started by mowing the lawns then took down my net curtains..... I washed (three loads ), ironed, cleaned my windows and got my net curtains back up! This morning the sun encouraged me to strip the bed, re-make it and the washing is blowing in the sun and wind! (shows I have not done much lately)! I was tempted to do a bit of weeding, but it would be a little daft of me because my back is aching.........instead, I finished off a card that is going to a relative in New Zealand for her birthday next week. they are animal mad. They have 1 sheep, 1 small horse, 4 pigs, 3 piglets and 3 dogs!
I thought this would be ideal for her lol...........

Brilliant Tilly - such a fun and pretty card. I bet it'll go down really well.

Needed a lie-down after reading how busy you'd been - but having just had a minor throwing out session here it does feel good to be thinking of Spring!

Hugs, Di xx

Gorgeous card Tilly. My friend would have loved it too as she is heavily (!) into elephants.
Now then. I shall leave the keys in the Chicken Coop for you to go and give my home a good Spring clean. Help yourself to the Baileys when you finish!

Thanks for stopping in, Tilly! I see that you had spring fever big time, but I'm with you on spring cleaning. Isn't just the BEST with all that fresh air blowing through and windows clean! Glad you didn't overdo it with the weeding. When I say on my blog that "life is too short," it doesn't apply to weeding, ha!

Your card is so adorable! I love that image!!
