Bloomin Potty . . . . . . . .

Good morning my little duckadees. Hope that you all managed to escape any storm damage. We were very lucky and just seemed to get driving rain but no real gale to speak of.

Thank you for your comments on my last post. My somersault onto the sofa and woo woos filling my ears frightened the living daylights out of me at the time but I do see the funny side now. The biscuits were lovely but I can't honestly profess to noticing any difference between English M&S biscuits and Scottish ones. I had hinted at tablet but I don't think he knew what I was on about. . . . . . . . Well, I think its called tablet, a sort of fudge meets Kendal mint cake type sweet?

Now, today is a plant pot card I was asked to make by the manageress of the charity shop I volunteer in. It is for her auntie's birthday next month. I think its safe to show it as I don't know her auntie and don't think she is a blogger.
I made it as before but just changed a couple of things like the stamping and butterflies and also, I added some SB Carnation Creation flowers this time too. The lovely little pearls in the centres were sent to me by the fabulous John of John Next Door fame.

They can be time consuming cards to make (mainly waiting for the terracotta paint to dry) but I enjoy making them. Here is a link to the first one I ever made. I forgot to photograph the inside of this one but its not radically different to the others.

Well, that's me for now. Hope you all have a great week and no more testing times with the weather or, life in general. Thanks for popping by for a dip in the pond. Its very much appreciated.
